My aunt gave me 3kg of baking chocolates recently and that spurs me into making more chocolate flavored pastries and bread which our household utterly love.
To create softer bread texture, I opted to use overnight tangzhong method into this recipe and very happy with the results.

Punch down the dough. Divide the dough into 9 equal portions and mould it round. Let it rest for another 15 mins.
Sprinkle the worktop with bread flour, flatten each dough into a disc or rectangular shape. Wrap adequate amount of fillings (D) and seal the edges. Repeat the process for the balance 8 ps of dough.座面上撒些高筋面粉，将休息好的面团用擀面棍把面团压扁成圆或长方型，包入馅料D捏紧收口。再重复同样的做法把其余的8份面团完成。
