Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

   

Time to make everything PUMPKIN!!!!! I love the fall and the flavors of pumpkin in everything! I was a little skeptical of the combination of chocolate and pumpkin at first, but I am a believer now! This recipe makes 3 loaves of bread. You can freeze the extra loaves for later, or give one to a neighbor or friend. (Or eat them all yourself!)
