There are times when making one loaf of bread is easier then baking dozens of cookies. At the holidays, I like to have this on hand for visitors that want something sweet to eat but, are tired of all the cookies that surround them during the Holiday season - this is a nice 'break from the ordinary' and when warmed and eaten - reminds me of the chocolate chip pancakes I once tasted at Walker Brothers Pancake House, warm and rich chocolate with a moist vanilla tasting bread. Besides, It's nice to have a change up from cookies sometimes too - and one thing I do know - this is a bread I cannot make often because we eat it too fast!!!! Enjoy! ~ Diane
