Heat the milk, butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over a medium heat until the butter has melted. Stir regularly to stop the milk catching on the bottom of the pan.
Using a stand mixer with dough hook fitted, add the flour.
To one side of the bowl add the yeast.
To the other side of the bowl add the salt, mixed spice, orange zest, egg and milk mixture.
Beat in the stand mixer until smooth, 'elastic' and starting to come away from the sides of the bowl.
If you don't have a stand mixer, mix in a bowl, tip onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.
Divide the mixture evenly in half.
Mix the cocoa, coffee and water to smooth thick paste.
Put one half of the dough into a bowl and cover with a clean tea towel.
Put the other half back in the stand mixer and add the paste.
Mix until fully incorporated. Again this can be done by hand.
Place into a separate bowl and cover.
Leave to prove for an hour to 1 and ½ hours
Tip the doughs onto a floured surface and knock out the air bubbles, keeping the dough separate.

Roll out the plain dough into a 20cm by 20cm square, roll up and divide into two 10cm strips.
Roll out the chocolate dough to a 20cm square.
Roll out the marzipan so it becomes one long strip the same length as the dough.
Place the marzipan on the chocolate dough and roll it into the dough. Divide into two 10cm strips.
Roll each of the four strips using the palm of your hand until they stretch to 20cm in length.
