Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Buns

In a medium bowl, sprinkle yeast over lukewarm milk. Let sit for a minute before stirring. Let sit 10-15 minutes until frothy.

In the bowl of a large food processor fitted with a dough blade, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Add yeast and milk, melted butter, egg, and 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips. Process until a smooth dough forms.

Place the dough in a large, lightly greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled, 1- 1 1/2 hours.

Preheat oven to 390 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment or lightly grease.
