My grandmother inspired me with this beautiful chocolate braided brioche. She make it very often but in a maximum format and crown-shaped ! I tried to reproduce it in a little more reasonable size , with lots of chocolate and much less butter ! Actually I ‘m pretty happy with the result and my dad has validated the recipe, to my delight . The maximum size would not have been too much, finally !
