Today we are kicking off December with a giveaway. There are a lot of giveaways coming up over the next month, so I hope you like winning free stuff! A few of my favorite things are going to be involved too. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My parents are visiting, so we have had lots family time and lots of good food. On Thanksgiving my brother and his wife came up from Denver. We also had a friend join us. It was a full house, and we went very non-traditional and had Calzones and homemade cannolis. It was fun to switch things up this year.
Another way to switch things up? Turn your pumpkin bread into chocolate pumpkin bread. And not just by adding some chocolate chips. A full on chocolate pumpkin batter. It is kind of crazy how well chocolate and pumpkin go together. This pumpkin bread is rich, chocoalte-y and pretty much justifies having cake for breakfast.
I think chocolate pumpkin bread would be perfect to make in mini bread pans to give as gifts this holiday season. Great for teachers or friends and neighbors. Or even for a sweets exchange. I wrapped up the extra loaf at my house and it is sitting in my freezer. The recipe makes 3 full size loaves of bread. I could only find 2 of my pans at the time, so I made the rest of the batter into muffins. Worked perfectly. I was definitely the hero when my son brought a friend home from school the afternoon I made this pumpkin bread.
