  2. Roll each section out into a circle.
  3. Spread each section of dough with the chocolate spread.
  4. Stack all the layers together and roll out one more time.
  5. Cut slits in the dough to form a small circle in the middle.

This elegant Snowflake Bread is simpler to make than you would think.


  • 1 loaf Rhodes Thaw, Rise & Bake white bread, thawed and risen
  • approximately 8 tablespoons of chocolate hazelnut spread
  • powdered sugar for dusting


Watch the recipe video in the post before trying to make this recipe! It's not hard to do, but it's very hard to explain the process using words only. The video is very short, I promise!

  1. Allow the Rhodes dough to thaw and rise at room temperature. This should take 4-6 hours.
  2. Divide the dough into 4 sections. Roll each piece of dough out into a circle about 9-10 inches.
  3. Spread the chocolate hazelnut spread on each circle and stack the circles together. Gently roll out one more time.
  4. (This is where the video really helps) Cut 16 slits towards the center to form a circle. Twist together two pieces at a time and pinch the ends to seal them.
  5. Bake at 350ºF on an ungreased baking sheet for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden.
  6. Dust with powdered sugar before serving (warm is best!).
