Orange Chocolate Chip Bread

The classic combination of flavors in this recipe reminds me of the orange and chocolate candy my grandmother made for the holidays. We like to snack on this bread throughout the day.

    My husband thought this was really good. I thought it was different, kind of like the orange chocolate slices they have around Christmas. If you like those, this is the same kind of taste.
