Chocolate Peppermint Loaf Bread

Howdy Partners,

I told you I’d be back with another peppermint recipe!!  I am officially addicted to peppermint.  It’s horrible!!  No it’s not, who am I fooling?  I love peppermint!!  And I love peppermint with chocolate even more!!!

This bread is amazing!!  It’s sweet, chocolaty and has little surprises of mint chocolate chips in it!!  It’s like eating a big chocolate brownie, just a tad healthier!!   During baking, the smell of my house was like Christmas, it smelled like a big mug of hot chocolate with a slight aroma of candy canes.  Oh man, I couldn’t wait for the bread to be done.  My Husbands friend came over and I told him if he waited 10 minutes, I’d give him some bread.  He did, I gave it to him while it was still hot and soft.  He smelled it and was like OMG!  He said I shouldn’t eat this.  I told him go ahead.  It’s not to bad for you.  I don’t like to tell people something is healthy, otherwise they won’t want to eat it!  Strange I know!

About 15 minutes after my Husbands friend left our house, my Husband and I were walking to the store and my Hubby got a text message from his friend.  His friend said “tell Jen the bread is excellent ”  Yah!!!  I told my Husband he just left our house, the bread was still hot!  lol, I guess he couldn’t wait! This bread is really delicious.  I can see heating it up in the microwave and putting a dollop of vanilla ice cream on it and maybe some peppermint whip cream.  This bread would make such a great dessert!!

My Husband took the bread to work, and I asked him what he thought, and he loved the chocolate chips in it.  He said they were little bites of pudding.  I was a little unsure if the bread would be chewy, but he said it wasn’t.  He said he loved it.  I asked if he shared him mini loaf, he said nope!  I told him I have one more mini loaf left and I was going to take it to work, he said, NO!  It’s mine!  I guess he really did like it.  One thing about my Husband is he is brutally honest about something that he does’t like and I always share his opinion with you, so when I say he liked it, he really did like it!!

Well that’s it for me to go!  It’s getting late and I still have to pack lunch!  I hate packing lunch, normally it’s a salad and I that means cutting veggies!!  Maybe I should have a PBandJ sandwich?  I haven’t had one of those in a while.

Have a great day!
