Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

We are basically in the fall/holiday season and I’m fully ready to embrace boots and sweaters. I’d also like to sip hot chocolate at the same time, while eating pumpkin & apple pie, with a pumpkin spice candle burning in my kitchen while listening to Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer.

Also..I’d like it snow.

Unfortunately my kids are still pant-less and wearing T-shirts around the house, and my air condition is on full speed. And the larger I get, the more I desperately want to wear oversized comfy clothes, but I sweat like a sinner in church…

Would this be considered complaining?

(Side note: I just love that little face!)

But of coarse I have so much to be grateful for, and this afternoon when my little peanut woke up from her nap I decided we would do our best to bring the Fall season to us. And since it’s the season of..giving? (Isn’t is always?) We decided that sharing a piece of Fall with someone else would be best!

This pumpkin bread is the perfect recipe for when you feel like giving. It makes enough to make one loaf for you and one loaf for someone else.

Or 4 smaller loaves for you and 3 special friends.

Or even muffins for lots of friends if your popular.Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread, http://thediva-dish.com

You can use canned pumpkin, or if you are feeling creative you can make your own FRESH pumpkin puree! (There is also a really embarrassing video tutorial too! Win win!)  I usually try and make a large batch every season and then bathe in it.

HA! I mean, not bathe…BAKE!! Oh my gosh…so awkward.

And of coarse, save the mixer spoon and a few chocolate chips for those little mouths. Leave the bowl for yourself…

Make sure you wrap up the loaf nicely with a sweet note and a burlap ribbon! Then grab your flip flops, sunglasses and 50 SPF as you head out the door to make your delivery…

Also, run the air conditioning in the car so the chocolate chips in the bread don’t melt…
