Chocolate breadsticks are an original and delicious snack, the sweet variant of the classic savory breadsticks. It is a leavened dough for bread, slightly sweetened and enriched with chocolate chips.

Once many long sticks have been made, according to the traditional breadsticks procedure, they are baked in the oven until lightly browned. Warm and fragrant, they are perfect to be enjoyed as a mid-morning snack and afternoon sweet treat, along with a cup of milk, hot chocolate or a spiced tea.

Delicious and tasty, chocolate breadsticks can be served for an aperitif or an original appetizer, taking advantage of the slightly sweet note. We suggest you prepare plenty of them because everyone will love them.


You can also flavor the dough with vanilla, cinnamon powder or grated orange peel, which will further enhance the intense taste of the chocolate.
