    I have had a lot of various breads but never a chocolate one and being the chocolate lover I am, this would be great

  21. 21

    Of course this would be considered healthy because chocolate is a vegetable- it comes from the cacao bean. I’m going with that!

  22. 22

    this looks sooo good! And I just happen to have buttermilk (powdered), and cocoa I want to use up and most everything else! So easy, and best of all, quick and choooocoatleyy!!!
