Bread, Doughnuts, and Tarts! Oh My! with Voila! Hallah Bread Mixes from Tribes-A-Dozen

 A little while back I received three bread mixes... Voila! Hallah, from Tribes-A-Dozen to try for myself. They are incredibly easy with clear directions that even I, the baking challenged, can pull off! If you would like to try one of my recipes or make the bread yourself, register below for my giveaway! Win the three mixes pictured below!

I love that Tribes-A-Dozen believes...
"At Tribes-A-Dozen, we believe that baking bread is more than just an ancient art — it’s an incredibly powerful way to connect us to our heritage and pass on cherished (and yummy) traditions to the next generation.
We bake to remember. Bring your family and friends together around healthful, meaningful traditions and you’ve made memories for life.
Tribes-A-Dozen is about wholesome, all natural, kosher hallah (or challah bread) – - the classic egg bread – - also referred to as barches, brioche, kalács, osterbrot, or, simply, twisted bread."
I used the traditional mix and followed the directions. It yielded three small balls of dough which could become a braided loaf or a single pan loaf. I decided to do something different with each one.

Two of the three dough balls.

 This one is a small round loaf with an egg wash
and sprinkled with Kosher Salt.

The second one became doughnut holes.

I dipped them in butter and then in cinnamon and sugar.

 If you noticed, four of them went missing
when I reached for the camera!

 The third one... I rolled out for the crust of a
Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Tart!
For the filling:

1 8oz block Cream Cheese, room temp
1 cup Powdered Sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)

Beat the cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth, scraping the sides down as needed. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour into the tart crust.

 Ready for the oven!
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
It will puff up while baking, and then settle back down while cooling.

All done!

I think it needed some chocolate fudge sauce!
