      I have made this bread several times to great reviews from everyone. My son's boss even offered to buy some. I usually leave the glaze off. This recipe makes enough for 3 disposable loaf pans. Thanks!

      I followed the recipe exactly and it was definitely too sweet. I was really looking forward to a bread that tasted like Almond Joy - but it's more like a really sweet, sticky bread that tastes like a really sweet, sticky bread. Definitely recommend taking it out of the pan before glazing. That may cause another problem - not sure how it will hold together before it's completely cool - but I made mine in well greased glass and aluminum loaf pans and both of them left their bottoms in the pan. (I glazed while still in the pans.) Also, I have a pretty "true" oven but I had to bake for a few more mins for the centers to be done. By that time, the outsides were more done than I would have liked. Maybe with a few modifications (more cocoa powder, coconut extract, less glaze/sugar) this would be 4 or 5 stars, but as is, I won't make it again. Sorry.

      Great bread - I made some changes which made it overly sweet so i'll follow directions next time. I added 1 tsp almond extract to enhance the almond flavor. Then I added a third T cocoa powder (am a chocoholic), and then added about 1/3 c cocoa (again, I realize i have a problem!)and some cornstarch to the glaze to make it chocolate...and a bit thicker. I wasn't sure as per directions if i had to cool the bread in or out of the pan, and when to glaze it. (in or out). I recommend turning it out of the pan or else, with the glaze, it's hard to get out. Also, I wasn't sure what size pan to use. I made one medium loaf of bread and about 5 jumbo muffins which doesn't sound like a full 2nd loaf. All in all, it was a tasty recipe and definitely like eating an almond joy candy bar!
