  • 0.33 cup - Sugar
  • 0.25 cup - Unsweetened cocoa powder

Recipe steps:

  • Measure all ingredients except filling and frosting into the bread machine pan in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Process on the dough/manual cycle.
  • When the cycle is complete, remove the dough to a lightly floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle.
  • Roll the dough to a 22 x 6-inch rectangle. With a sharp knife, cut in half lengthwise to make two 22 x 3-inch strips. Spread one-half of the filling down the center length of each strip.
  • Fold the long sides of the dough over the filling; pinch seams and ends to seal. Place the ropes, seam sides down, on a greased baking sheet. Twist the ropes together. Form into a wreath; pinch ends to seal.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until risen slightly, about one hour.
  • Bake at 350F for 35 to 40 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheet; cool on wire rack. Drizzle with frosting. Garnish with candied fruit if desired.
