Place chocolate pieces, about 3 inches apart, down centre of dough rectangle; fold dough lengthwise in half. Roll into 20-inch log; bring ends together to form ring. Place on parchment-covered baking sheet; cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place 2 hours or until doubled in size.

Cooking Know-How
The plastic wrap is used to cover the dough as it rises since it forms a tight seal which helps keep the dough moist.
