  • 1

    In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, stir together 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour, sugar and yeast. Add in egg, butter (in small cubes), salt and buttermilk and mix on low speed until just combined.

  • 2

    Divide dough into two pieces, one piece twice as large as the other. Into the larger piece of dough, stir chocolate chips and enough red coloring to dye dough to a deep pink color, adding up to 1/4 cup remaining flour as needed until dough is smooth and elastic and pulls away from sides of bowl, about 5 minutes. Remove red dough from bowl and place in another bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

  • 3

    In a clean bowl, stir enough green food coloring to completely dye dough into smaller piece of dough, adding up to 1/4 cup remaining flour as needed until dough is smooth and elastic and pulls away from sides of bowl, about 5 minutes. Remove dough from bowl and place in another bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

  • 4

    Remove risen red dough from bowl and place on a lightly floured surface. Flatten, using fingers, into a rectangle about 6 by 8 inches. Roll the dough from the short end like a jelly roll, pinching the seam closed as you roll to tighten the top of the loaf.

  • 5

    Remove risen green dough from bowl and flatten into a rectangle about 3 by 8 inches. Carefully dome green dough over red dough, stretching as needed until long edges of green dough completely cover red dough.

  • 6

    Carefully place loaf in a lightly greased 8 by 4-inch loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

  • 7

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Uncover risen loaf and bake 30-40 minutes, or until a golden brown. The dough should also register about 190°F inside and make a hollow thumping sound when thwacked on the bottom. Remove from loaf pan and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack before slicing.
