This is a great bread that includes chocolate chips. It is super easy to make with your bread machine and makes a great change to normal bread.
I tried this recipe FOUR TIMES before it worked out for me. #1...Put everything in the bread machine except the chocolate chips. Waited for the fruit/nut timer to go off. TV on loud. Missed timer. Resulting bread sweet and moist, but chipless. #2...Put everything in the bread machine, including chips. Chips melted. Had chocolate bread. Both Boyfriend and I didn't like it. #3...Put everything in bread machine except chips. Waited for timer. Added chips. Chips STILL MELTED. Was disgusted with self. Threw batter away. #4...Added all ingredients except chips to bread machine. Selected dough only. When dough was finished, kneaded chips into dough (it was VERY STICKY), put it in a greased and floured 10" bread pan, let it rise a bit, baked it at 350 for about a half hour. The resulting bread was moist and nicely speckled with gooey chocolate chips. WHEW!!! Next time I make it, I will make the dough only, knead in the chips, and then select the bake only function to bake it in the bread machine. It cooks more evenly in the machine, it seems. Learn from my mistakes: if in fact you want chocolate CHIp bread, and not chocolate bread, you'll need to knead. Best of luck and thanks Heather for your recipe. My boyfriend is happy!!!! - 15 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

My husband loves it. I have sent tis recipe to many friends. To make it lower in fat I substituted skim milk, 2 egg whites & lower fat margarine. I also use the basic recipe & substitue nuts & raisons for chocoloate chips. Thank you Thankyou. Ann - 28 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
