I know blogging around here lately is sparse. I love blogging and need to make more time for it. However, I couldn’t let the pumpkin season go by without sharing a favorite recipe that I make this time of year.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread should be made sometime before we go full force into peppermint season. I’m not complaining though. I did spend most of the day yesterday decorating for Christmas minus the tree. Although, that’s happening sometime before we leave to go home for Thanksgiving.

Pumpkin and chocolate are a fabulous combination and this bread would make a great breakfast or snack on Thanksgiving Day. I’d suggest making it the day before, and wait for it to cool completely and then wrap in saran wrap and serve the next day. This will help save time and oven space on the actual big cooking day.

Jason, does not have the affection for pumpkin like I do. So, I assumed this bread would most be enjoyed by ahem, myself. Nope! I was wrong. He loved this chocolate chip pumpkin bread! We both loved it so much we had to give some away just to get it away from us.
