Chocolate Bread

It’s been awhile since I have talked about how precious my boyfriend, Stephen is, so I figured we were due for a Stephen Story. At work the other day, we trained some teachers on how to use bread makers to incorporate literacy, math, science, etc. into their classrooms. So from the training, we had leftover chocolate bread, and I took some to Stephen with cream cheese frosting. Later, I received a text that said, “Um, can I order some of that bread with the thing in it…? It was the bomb…!” (The 'thing' was cream cheese frosting sandwiched between the bread) Ok, you may not think that was adorable, but I do.

Chocolate Bread
1 1/2 c. water
4 c. white bread flour
1/4 c. sugar
2 t. salt
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1 t. vanilla
1 egg
1/2 c. cocoa powder
3 t. active dry yeast

Put ingredients, in order from top to bottom in bread machine. Use white bread course.

Cream Cheese Frosting
16 oz. cream cheese, at room temp
1 stick butter, at room temp
1 box powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla

Cream together cream cheese and butter. With mixer on low speed, slowly add powdered sugar, and mix until incorporated. Add vanilla and mix well.


  1. The bread does sound good! And easy-bonus! Time to bring out the bread machine. The bomb huh? If Stephen says so... I got it bookmarked!

  2. Thanks for posting this recipe. I lost my copy and need it to make some dessert pizzas.
