Every year around this time, I'll make this bread for my family. I've also given it as a homemade gift. It's pretty wrapped in colored foil or put in a tin. —Karen Grimes, Stephens City, Virginia

"I added all of the chips to the batter and skipped the glaze. I also added an extra 1/4 cup butter. The bread came out great! These would also make great muffins!"

"Just made these and they are pretty good. Didn't get to make the frosting, didn't have powdered sugar, and my daughter (helper) fell asleep before they got done baking. I will say they do need some kind of frosting or something. They are just slightly on the dry side. Maybe cause I did a muffins instead of loaves. I reduced the baking time. Anywho, I'll make them again, but with frosting or eat with a glass of milk."

"I made these as muffins like a previous reviewer did. They were very tasty, but I do agree they were a tad dry. Would definitely add more chocolate chips into the batter tho, as all I had was regular ones."

"The taste was ok, but this turned out drier than I like. Maybe a couple tablespoons of oil would help?"

"I thought so at first, too, until I read the directions. Some of the chocolate chips are melted, cooled and stirred in with the eggs, the rest are added at the end."

""Triple chocolate" would indicate 3 chocolates, but I only see 2. One in the bread and one in the glaze. Am I missing something?"

"I made this as a full-sized loaf, which took about 10 more minutes of baking time. It has great flavor. My only complaint would be that it is not quite as moist as I would like (probably because it uses applesauce instead of oil?)."

"This bread is excellent. I omitted the glaze; it was delicious without it. For dessert or for gifts, the glaze would make it more special, though."
