I make this recipe during the holidays. It is moist, and freezes well! I bake them in coffee cans, and wrap them in colored cellophane to give as gifts.

Usally I love everything chocolate but to be honest I really was not fond of this chocolate/pumpkin combination. The flavors just did not blend well together. I followed the recipe exactly but at most could only make two good size loaves to have split this 3 ways would have resulted in 3 very small loaves. Glad I baked this but I know its not something I will make again. Certainly not a keeper for me! Read More

This recipes was delicious and I don't like pumpkin! I made mini-loaves and baked it for 35mins. It made 8 loaves. It was so moist, it was almost cake-like. I highly recommend it. Read More

I used the mini muffin tins and baked them for 16 minutes. It's a great size for kids. I tried using 1 1/2 cups of chips the second time I made them and I like it better. Next time I plan to sift the dry ingredients together before adding them to the wet ingredients. Very yummy muffins! Read More

Great recipe. We made a few healthy changes. We reduced sugar to 1 1/2 cups. We use 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup vegetable oil. We use 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 cup white four. I use 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. Still taste great after these modifications. Read More

This bread is awesome! My husband doesn't even like pumpkin flavored stuff and he devoured it. I substituted baby food prunes for all the oil (equal amounts) to cut the fat dramatically and it was still moist and delicious. I'll definitely make it again. Read More

I was worried about using such a large quantity of ingredients my first time trying a recipe...but as it turns out it was worth it! I substituted a grated zucchini for one egg just because it was asking to be used and it turned out very well. I highly reccomend it! Read More

This was surprisingly good! Mine turned out moist and not too pumpkin-y which is great. I didn't have mini chocolate chips so I used the regular ones and they were just as fine. I froze one loaf and will pull it out at holiday time! Read More
