8. When the dough is firm roll it out a little before cutting it into 2 equal parts. First part lower it by lengthening it slightly. Transfer to the freezer for 10 minutes.

13. In a bowl with the custard add the chocolate chips and mix them all together.
14. Remove the dough from the freezer and spread a layer of pastry cream on top. Close the edges to obtain the loaf and cut into loaves 4 cm wide.
