I love pull-apart bread, all sorts of them, for example: blueberry cream cheese pull-apart bread, garlic-herb and cheese pull-apart bread, pull-apart garlic bread and easy cheesy pull-apart rolls.
So when I saw this chocolate-cinnamon pull-apart bread recipe, I know I have to share the recipe with you!
Just like what you see on the photos here, every layer of the bread is loaded with chocolate chips, cinnamon, and every bite is bursting with the amazing flavors of the two ingredients. I was instantly hooked. What I love most about this recipe is the bread is perfect anytime of the day: morning, afternoon or late night.
Making pull-apart bread is easier than ever with frozen bread dough. There is no need to make the bread dough from scratch, but if you like, you can always use the bread dough recipe here. But really, frozen dough is good enough, and I have no problem with taking short cuts when it comes to baking!

Chocolate-Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread
Chocolate-Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread - Crazy delicious pull-apart bread loaded with chocolate chips and cinnamon. A must-bake.
- 1 pound frozen white bread dough, thawed
- 4 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 pinch salt
Roll and stretch the dough into a 12-inch square on a lightly floured surface. Combine the chocolate chips, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
Combine the butter, vanilla and salt in a separate bowl then spread over the 12-inch square of dough. Sprinkle with the chocolate mixture, pressing lightly. Cut the dough into 16 small squares and make 4 stacks of 4 squares each.
Place each stack on its side in a buttered 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. Gently separate the dough layers, so the dough fills the pan. Sprinkle with any fallen pieces of chocolate. Cover the loaf loosely with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place until the dough rises by half its size, 1 to 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C). Bake the loaf until it's browned and cooked through, 40 to 45 minutes (tent with foil if it's browning too quickly). Let cool 15 minutes in the pan, then loosen the edges with a knife. Remove to a plate and let cool 30 minutes.

I made your chocolate cinnamon pull apart bread today. It’s very good. I defrosted the frozen bread over nite in the fridge. I found that the bread dough became easier to handle after it had warmed a bit to room temperature. This information might be helpful in the directions. Also, you might also want to put in the directions to reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees for dark metal pans. I didn’t realize this until it was too late and the loaf almost burned on the bottom and sides after 40 min. I did have to cut off the bottom of the loaf but it was still good. I look forward to making it again with the changes I mentioned.
Absolutely delish! Reminds me a little of chocolate brioche I have had before. Would love to send you a picture of how it turned out. :)
Hi Bee, may I know how to make the frozen dough? Possible to share the ingredient and step by step please? Lastly, how long can it store frozen?
Love this! Really enjoy your recipes so much!
