This delicious Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread is full of chocolate inside and on top. It is definitely the way to go when you kick off your pumpkin baking.
I cannot tell you how excited I am that it is now fall. Now I know the official first day of fall isn’t for a few more weeks, but I can’t wait that long. So in my mind it is fall…don’t burst my bubble!
This time of year is my absolute favorite time. I look forward to wearing jeans and sweatshirts, drinking hot chocolate and pumpkin lattes, going to bonfires and corn mazes, feeling the chilly air at night, and of course eating anything and everything pumpkin.
Now I have to tell you…I did break into the pumpkin about 2 weeks ago. I held out for as long as I possible could. But I started seeing so many pumpkin recipes pop up on pinterest and on my friend’s blogs. I just couldn’t wait any longer!!
My restraint for posting these recipes has lasted a little bit longer, but now that we are in September…I’m not holding back any more. So far I have made 4 recipes that I am so excited to share with you. Today you get some pumpkin bread. It is so great for eating with a hot steamy cup of coffee.
This pumpkin bread is one of my favorites. It is actually almost the same as the recipe I use for my Nutella Marshmallow Pumpkin Bread, but I wanted to simplify it a little bit. This bread if full of mini chocolate chips. Now if you are thinking it is too much chocolate, go ahead and use half the amount. Honestly I adore chocolate and pumpkin together, so I go a little crazy with it. But even with all this chocolate, the pumpkin flavor shines through!!!
Speaking of crazy? Check out the top of this bread! As if the mini chips inside were not enough, I just had to make it pretty. I can honestly say that this is the absolutely most prettiest bread I have ever done. How’s that for adjectives?
The top does look a little hard, but it was seriously so easy to do.
My biggest tip for doing this is to make sure both chocolates are ready to go before you start to put it on the bread. I like to spoon the white chocolate into a plastic baggie and cut one tip off. Then spoon the chocolate on top of the bread. Go ahead and get it to the edge, but try to keep from pushing it over. As soon as you are done, grab that bag of white chocolate and drizzle it back and forth over the top from side to side. Then immediately use a toothpick to drag it through the chocolate end to end. Work quickly because the chocolate will start to set up.
All that is left to do is brew a cup of coffee and have a slice or two of your handiwork while you enjoy a nice fall day!
