How do I make it ?
Select All
Step 1
Microwave 1/3 cup milk in medium microwaveable bowl on HIGH 15 sec. Add yeast, sugar and cardamom; stir. Let stand 10 min. or until bubbles start to form on surface. Meanwhile, chop 2 oz. chocolate.
Step 2
Beat 125 g cream cheese, 2 eggs and flour in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add yeast mixture; beat 3 to 4 min. or until dough starts to pull away from side of bowl to form ball. Add apricots and chopped chocolate; mix well. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place 1 to 2 hours or until doubled in volume.
Step 3
Punch down dough; roll dough into 10 balls. Place in single layer in 9-inch pie plate sprayed with cooking spray; cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.
Step 4
Remove dough from refrigerator; let rise in warm place 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until doubled in volume.
Step 5
Heat oven to 350ºF. Whisk remaining egg and milk until blended; brush lightly onto dough. Discard any remaining egg wash.
Step 6
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until golden brown. Cool slightly.
Step 7
Melt remaining chocolate as directed on package; mix with remaining cream cheese until blended. Spoon into resealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to drizzle chocolate mixture over buns as shown in photo.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Substitute ground nutmeg for the cardamom.
Omit the overnight refrigeration step for the dough. Instead let dough balls rise in warm place 1 hour or until doubled in volume before baking and decorating with melted chocolate mixture as directed.
