Homemade Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread Mix

Amy Alusa


Another one for the homemade mixes collection of mine. I made this one from one of the pumpkin bread recipes I use often; as it lends itself to a mix rather well. A note though, you will want to be sure to store this mix where the chocolate chips won't melt, or leave them out all together until you make the bread. (I find it easier to store in a cool place---as it's the chocolate chips that I most FREQUENTLY don't have! This is a winner. Hope you enjoy it!
