Layers of fluffy dough separated and twisted so gorgeous and a perfect breakfast bread for Christmas or Easter or any other day you want to enjoy something chocolaty. This bread is super simple to make even though it looks intense. This is a rich dough, it will take a little extra time to rise.
For the Dough

1 Large Egg
57 Grams Butter
150 Ml Milk
3 Tablespoons Sugar
½ Teaspoon Salt
310 Grams All Purpose Flour -
10 Grams Corn flour
1½ Teaspoons Instant Yeast
For The Homemade Chocolate Fudge Sauce
26 Grams Butter - cut into cubes
1½ Tablespoons Light Corn Syrup
90 to 100 Grams Unsweetened Dark Chocolate - chopped
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup White Sugar
1 Cup Heavy Cream
A Pinch Salt
1 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

First Let's Make the Chocolate Fudge Sauc
Melt butter over medium heat in a large saucepan and swirl it around in the pan to the coat sides. Add corn syrup and chocolate and stir until chocolate melts. Add sugars, cream, salt and continue to cook over medium flame till the mixture comes to a boil.
Using a candy thermometer, boil gently for 4 minutes, without stirring, until the sauce is thickened and the candy thermometer reaches 220-224ยบ. Remove from heat. Pour sauce into a Pyrex measuring cup. Whisk in vanilla. Cool to room temperature on the counter, then chill till it reaches a spreadable consistency.
For The Dough
Heat the milk and butter till warm, add the sugar stir till it melts. To this add the yeast and egg, cover and keep aside till the yeast froths.
In a large bowl add all the flour and salt, mix it well. Then slowly add the milk mixture and with a dough whisk start kneading the dough adding little milk at a time to make a soft smooth dough. 
Place the dough into a oiled bowl, cover and let is rise till double in volume. Then take the dough and on a lightly floured surface, knead it well. Then roll out dough and cut into four even sized balls. Cover the ball with a wrap, let rest 10-15 minutes.
To Assemble
Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces.
Roll each dough ball out into a thin 10" circle. To get the same diameter circle take a plate and cut each circle accordingly.
Roll out the remaining circles and cover them with a damp cloth as you are working.
Place the first circle on a tray line with parchment paper or silicone mat.
Top with chocolate fudge sauce then layer the other three circles and filling on top.( leaving the top circle bare).
Put a 2 or 3 inch bowl in the center
Then using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the circle stack creating into 4 equal strips
Each strip then cut into another 4 strips.
Like that we should have 16 equal strips that are still connected in the center.
Using both hands pick up two strips and twist them from each other two or three times then press the ends together firmly.
Repeat that until you end up with eight of twisted strips.
Transfer the star bread to a baking tray and cover with plastic wrap and let it rest 15 min. Preheat the oven 190°C.
Brush the star bread with beaten egg and pour a little bit granulated sugar on top.
Bake for about 20-30 min until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and cool for about 10 minutes. Dust with confectioners sugar on top(optional).
So Chocolaty... yum...mmm . Serve warm. Enjoy!!
