- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, melted
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

- In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the melted chocolate chips, eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with applesauce just until moistened. Fold in miniature chips.
- Divide batter among five greased 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans, about 1 cup in each. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
- For glaze, combine the chocolate chips, butter and water in a saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in confectioners' sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth. Drizzle over cooled loaves. Yield: 5 mini loaves (6 slices each).

Not very good - no the chocolate flavor I would have hoped for. Very moist, but bland. Maybe a milk chocolate chip in the batter and for the glaze...
The first time I made this I made it in a bundt pan and took it to a New Year's Eve party. I did not drizzle the topping. I poured it over the top to have it droop down the edges. It was too thick to drizzle, but the effect was a very artistic layer that had the guests drooling.
There was no chocolate loaf left to take home. It was so moist and chocolatey. A sworn dessert abstainer said it was the best he had ever tasted.
I recently made it again, but it was not as moist. The key was, don't skimp on the apple sauce. As a matter of fact, the best results were achieved when I topped up with stewed rhubarb and increased it 2 cups. The moister it is, the more the chocolate flavour comes out.
I will make it over and over... It is requested on a regular basis.
A friend of mine first introduced me to this delicious loaf of chocolate heaven. These loaves are so good and easy to make.
I have been making this bread sense 1961. It is
sooo goood! Try it with Rashberry jam spread on it. When its around I always eat it that way for breakfast. Yummmy Good.
We made this as a family activity, everyone made their own loaf. It was a hug hit! All the kids enjoyed it :) We made it without the drizzle and ate it right out of the oven. It was not too chocolately, which was perfect because this could be a great anytime treat!
