1 cup Warm Milk

Open the top cover of the bread machine and lift the handle of the bread pan vertically, pulling upward to remove the pan from the machine. Place the bread pan on your work surface. Make sure the pan is clean and both kneading paddles are in place.
Add the milk, yeast, salt, vanilla, ¼ cup sugar, honey, 1 egg, 2 yolks and ½ cup butter.
Put the bread pan back in the bread machine, pressing it down so that it clicks into place. Close the lid of the bread machine.
Plug the bread machine into an outlet and press the power button to turn the machine on.
Use the menu button to select program #6 for the dough cycle.
Press the start button to begin the dough cycle.
Once the dough has mixed, the countdown timer on the front of the machine will read 0:00 and the machine will beep, indicating your dough is done. Open the machine at this time and use a pot holder to lift the pan out of the machine.
While the dough is rising, making the chocolate filling by melting the ½ cup butter and chocolate together. Stir until smooth then add the remaining ingredients to the chocolate mix and stir well.
Place the dough on a flat work surface and roll it out with a rolling pin into a large rectangle, about 1” thick.
Spread the chocolate filling over the dough, covering it completely.
Roll the dough up like a jellyroll, enclosing the chocolate. You should have a long bread log.
Fold the bread log in half and place it back in the bread machine pan. No paddles are needed. Place the pan back in the bread machine, making sure it clicks into place.
Turn the bread machine on and select the bake cycle (#11). Use the up arrow to set the timer for 1 hour. Press start and let the bread bake.
Flip the pan over and gently tap it on the counter to remove the bread. Let cool slightly.
Slice and enjoy!
