This Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bread is a rich chocolate yeast bread loaded with chocolate chips.
I used to make a similar recipe every year shaped like a bunny for Easter dinner. It was a nice treat for those that like chocolate but want to leave the gaggy sweet candies for the kids. But, the recipe on the company's site is no longer the same and I cannot find the one I had clipped from a magazine decades ago.
So, I set about recreating it and I think my version tastes better than the original.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bread
- 2-3 cups all purpose flour
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 1 packet rapid rise yeast (2 ¼ teaspoons)
- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cups milk
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ⅔ cups chocolate chips
- Grease the bottom and sides of a loaf pan.
- In a large mixing bowl mix 1 ½ cups flour, cocoa, yeast, sugar and salt for about 1 minute until mixed and sifted.
- In a small pan heat milk and butter until butter has just melted - do not boil! Mixture should feel warm to the touch.
- Add to the dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated.
- Add enough extra flour to knead the dough, about ½ cup at a time. If you have a dough hook attachment it is best to use it to knead the dough so you do not need as much flour, which will make the bread tough.
- Knead for 6-8 minutes until dough is elastic. Knead in chocolate chips. Put dough into prepared pan.
- Cover and let rise in a warm draft free place until doubled (about 45 minutes).
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake loaf 35-40 minutes until done. I usually tap it on the top and if it sounds hollow it's done.
