Chocolate Cherry Bread

Amy Freeze


This recipe is a bread, but more like a dessert. My husband brought this to our marriage. His mother made it every Christmas and asked that I do the same. He rarely makes requests like this so, I now make it every Christmas. The double dose of chocolate makes this dessert bread extra rich, and in small loaf pans, it makes a great hostess gift.
