Julia's Super Scrumptious Chocolate Hazelnut Buns

These buns tick all of my boxes. Soft and pillowy, not too sweet and visually very, very beautiful. They also happen to contain chocolate and hazelnut – one of my all time favourite combinations. With Easter coming up, and Hot Cross Buns front and centre in all the bakeries, there is no better time to make these gorgeous chocolate hazelnut buns. It can take a little practice to get the twisting and knotting right, but even when it’s not perfect, it’s still certainly delicious.

Other nuts like walnuts and almonds are great here, and these buns are also lovely with a butter cinnamon filling instead, for those who prefer a more traditional spiced filling. The pearl sugar is available from most baking supply shops, but can be left out or swapped for some chopped nuts.
