    Laowai wife's Note:

    This is from Canadian Living. It is sweet, sticky and soooo good! It would be great for a brunch. It sounds complicated but is actually quite easy. Takes awhile to make. What I like is this recipe has a bread maker option (see bottom of recipe). I did it in my breadmachine and used Fleischmann's breadmachine yeast. While the recipe calls for chocolate chips I used a chopped up chocolate bar instead and think that this made it even better.
