Chocolate rugelach are small yeast Danish filled with gooey chocolate and traditionally covered in sugar syrup. Here in Israel it’s the classic bakery treat that everyone brings home on Fridays for the weekend. Shabbat morning rugelach is a truly Israeli experience. Many home bakers like to make their own rugelach, even using store bought frozen dough. If you’d like to attempt this, I can tell you one thing for sure, the smell in your kitchen will be worth it!
