Chocolate hot cross buns
These are my take on traditional hot cross buns.

I added chocolate chips instead of the traditional fruit filling.

They can be made large or smaller in size, what ever suits you.

There seems a lot of work but the time is mostly spent waiting for the buns to prove & rise.
