This non-traditional stollen is made without eggs, dairy and candied fruit. Instead, it’s filled with fresh oranges, dried cranberries and chocolate chips. It’s wonderful toasted!

My mom’s family has been making this for as long as I can remember. We always get together on Christmas Eve so we have to have it then, but it’s good anytime! When we were kids, my mom would get up early and make this for our birthday breakfasts, shaped into the number we were turning instead of a wreath, and using whatever colored sugar she had on hand.
I was trying be inventive. I was trying to combine two cravings into one: chocolate and cinnamon roll dough with a warm glaze. I didn’t want to combine cinnamon and brown sugar with the chocolate. I just wanted pure, unadulterated chocolate with bread and a glaze…so I made this.
