I have been making this recipe for years. It makes wonderful gifts and freezes well. I bake mine in coffee cans, but you can use loaf pans or mini loaf pans for gifts. Wrap in colorful cellophane and tie with a pretty ribbon.

My 4 year old and I just tasted this while it's still warm - delicious! Really moist and satisfying! We didn't have the cloves so I can't wait to try it next time! Also, we chopped 3 Hershey bars for the chocolate, since thats all we had and I'm looking forward to using a better quality chocolate next time - but for now, it worked just fine! Dark chocolate sounds great. Also, Nate thought we should add some dried cranberries with the chocolate next time. A chef in the making! Thanks for the awesome recipe, we'll make this for his preschool teachers' Christmas gifts this year!
