This looks wonderful. I think it would be great to give as a gift or to serve for breakfast on a holiday.

this was delicious and so easy to put together. I made it this morning and one loaf is over half gone. It's not too sweet but has enough sweet and chocolate to cure a craving. Made for My 3 Chefs, fall 2009.
