Attention Chocolate Lovers ๐Ÿ’• Chili/Chocolate Bread Aheadย 

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• Are you ready for some baking? ๐Ÿ˜Š Then I have a treat for you! 

No tricks, just some deliciousness ๐Ÿ‘ป

I love to experiment in the kitchen. So when I was ready for a new breakfast bread – the Raisin Bread got a bit boring – and came across a Chocolate/Chili bar at a store…it all came together.๐Ÿ˜I picked up some chocolate chips (Ghirardelli Bittersweet) – that’s all I needed, everything else is always in the house. ๐Ÿ˜

That was a few weeks ago. I mentioned it in a post here, and the lovely Tracy – awesome quilter, fabulous blogger, and all around a wonderful person – asked if I would like this bread to be the ๐Ÿ’ซStar๐Ÿ’ซ of this month’s ‘Fantastic Bake-Along’. ๐Ÿ˜Š Needless to say, I was thrilled to say ‘Yes!’ 

If you don’t just wanna bake this bread, but also share it with the rest of the ‘Fantastic Bakers’, please let Tracy know, and she’ll include you in the list. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ She will even send you a reminder every month – like I said…a wonderful person! ๐Ÿ˜ All you have to do is head over to her blog It’s a T-Sweets Day and let her know. ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope you decide to join us, and share your beautiful baking results with us. ๐Ÿค—

Alrighty…now to the recipe for the 

Chocolate/Chili Bread 

I made it in my bread machine. If you do the same, place all the ingredients, in this order, in the bread pan fitted with the kneading paddle 

For a small loaf (1 lb.)

Milk, room temperature  –   3/4 cup

Unsalted Butter, room temperature, 1/2″ pieces  –    1/4 cup 

1 egg

Salt.  –  1/2 tsp.

Granulated Sugar  –  2 Tbsp.

Bread Flour   –  2-1/4 cups

Chili Powder   –  1-1/2 tsp. 

Yeast, active dry, instant, or bread machine   – 1-1/2 tsp.

Select the ‘Basic/White’ program, 1 lb., and your desired crust color, and start the machine. When the mix-in tone sounds, add 1 cup chocolate chips. 

Note: The Ghirardelli chips have a very intense chocolate taste. The Chili therefore is just an aftertaste…a mild ‘burn’. To intensify the Chili flavor you might wanna use Milk Chocolate Chips. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing. 

I wish I could give you Hand Mixing Instructions here, but I have no experience in yeast-bread baking outside my bread machine ๐Ÿ˜Œ I looked through all my cookbooks…none of the recipes has the needed ingredients listed. 

So…fellow bakers…if you have a trusted recipe that can be used here, please let me know. I will gladly include it. โ˜บ๏ธ

Happy baking! I’m looking forward to seeing your bread, and can’t wait to hear what you think of this concoction  creation ๐Ÿ˜

Now head over to Tracy’s blog, and tell her you wanna join us! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Sending Love โค๏ธ, Smiles ๐Ÿ™‚, and Hugs ๐Ÿค—
