My Grandmother Mabel Kennedy Sullivan use to make this as loaves of bread and as buns to eat with butter or as sandwiches.

She sometimes added dried fruits and nuts and made the buns smaller and put chocolate frosting on top.

****I don't have my grandmother's recipe, but I know that this is it, as it is an old recipe from Fleischmann's yeast... the yeast Grandmother used. And... the directions were the same as Grandma use to do, including optional items. I found this recipe online... and as I said.... I know this is the same recipe!!! I was so excited to find it!!!

*** this is not my photo of this bread.

How to Make Cocoa Bread !!!

Step-by-Step

Add salt and knead the bread lightly. Put dough into a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and set in a warm place to rise until doubled in size (about 2 hours). Shape into loaves, place in well greased bread pans, filling them half full. Cover and let rise again until light (about one hour). Bake 40 - 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
  2. *** You can shape these into dinner rolls or sandwich buns.

    *** If you put fruit and nuts in the dough, you can form into little buns and frost with chocolate frosting.
