Ciao Bella Strawberry Chocolate Bread

Anna Sciancalepore Antoniello


I have had people fight over the last piece of this bread. LOL

I changed a recipe that I came across a few years ago. The original was way too soggy for me. The nice thing is it makes two loaves. So you can freeze one if you want. But I guarantee you won't have any left.

What sets this bread apart is the chocolate which was another touch I added. Everyone knows the flavor of berries and chocolate go together so well!
