Tips for making Double Chocolate Chip Bread:

  • Make it a Triple Chocolate Chip Bread by adding a chocolate glaze on top! For glaze, melt 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of butter in a saucepan; stir in 2 to 3 tablespoons half and half cream. Remove from the heat; stir in 1/2 cup confectioners’  sugar, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and a pinch of salt. Drizzle over warm bread.
  • You can also turn this recipe from bread to muffins! Just pour the batter into lined muffin tins.
  • Love this double chocolate chip bread? Double the recipe and freeze the extra loaves to eat later in the week!
