Story Behind this Recipe

I made a whole bunch of candied orange peel from oranges so I decided to make a cake or bread! And since recently I really love chocolate with orange, I combined them both into a rich brioche dough to make a cake-like bread.
You don't need to use a muffin tray; you can bake them in any shape or size you want.
