Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups (9 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans.

COMBINE flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Combine eggs, milk and vegetable oil in medium bowl. Add to flour mixture; mix just until moistened. Stir in morsels and nuts. Spoon into prepared loaf pans.

BAKE for 55 to 60 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool on wire racks.

TIP: If you are looking for even more chocolate flavor, try drizzling the cooled loaves with chocolate! Microwave 1/2 cup semi-sweet morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; knead bag to mix. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut a small hole in corner of bag; squeeze to drizzle over bread.

    Great Recipe!

    Nancy Hart from CORTLAND, OH

    I made this for the 1st time last night. Delicious and easy. However, I put in only 1 TEASPOON of baking soda because the 1 TABLESPOON seemed like too much. Turned out great! Made it in 3 medium loaf pans - crunchy and brown at 40 minutes. Can't wait to make more to keep and give away.

    Decadent snacking bread

    IDA BEEK from LANDING, NJ

    Made this chocolate chip nut bread and it was out of this world. It's a good thing I doubled the recipe after reading other reviews. Cut back on the baking time also and it turned out perfect.

    Quick and Delicious

    Charlene Gray from HAZEL PARK, MI

    Made this one sunday afternoon and found it to be a very simple recipe to make. Only kept in oven for 40 min instead of full 55 min due to reading an earlier review and it turned out perfect. My sister actually swiped the second loaf to take home with her. Definately a keeper, going to try with raisens next time.

    choc chip nut bread

    Linda Vincent from POCONO LAKE, PA

    This is very good, tasted like a soft choc chip cookie. Make sure you check it at 45-50 min., my oven thermometer says oven temp is perfect yet 55 min was too long, bottom and sides got too dark and dry using a regular metal loaf pan.

    Great Choice for the In-Laws

    Maureen Vetromila from MOROCCO, IN

    I made this for my father-in-law who is a retired baker from Chicago....and it was so impressed that he asked me for your recipe. I say..."Way to Go" to the one who entered this. He is even putting this into his collection of recipes from past to present!

    I made this delicious bread for holiday gifts for my friends. It was easy to make and pretty to recieve. I got many oohs & ahs. I now keep some in the freezer and pull it out when I have company. It goes great with a brunch also. Thanks for a great gift idea.

    Even my picky hubby loved it!

    Kelly Mueller from EAST NORTHPORT, NY

    I love this. It was so simple I had the batter made even before my oven had a chance to heat up. I did alter slightly. I added 1 tablespoon of cinnamon to the dry ingredients and vanilla extract to the wet. It was delicious!!!

    Chocolate Nut Bread

    Janet Rosenwinkel from CROWN POINT, IN

    I just finished baking a dozen mini loaves of this bread today, I got 6 loaves out of one recipe. In fact, I just had to try a slice for myself, the bread is delicious. I usually make several dozen mini loaves of different tea breads and give them out for the holidays. This one will replace one of my other chocolate chip mini breads that I've made over the years! Great Recipe!!!

    Easy to make, tastes good

    Rose Huntress-Ristich from ROCHESTER, NY

    I made the Chocolate Nut Bread recipe, but I made muffins instead of loaves of bread. Bake for 18 minutes. Makes 24 muffins. Good, the batter is not too sweet so the chocolate chips are not upstaged. Just right combination. Not really cakelike either, so they make great breakfast muffins.

    Good and relatively quick if you don't put the chocolate drizzle on top. I would have preferred if it was somewhat richer with maybe cocoa or choc. squares melted in the batter.

    Great Bread

    diane bowden from , west linn OR

    This bread is surprizingly good and very easy to make. I sent a loaf of it with my husband to work and the guys there raved over it. I have them a bit spoiled and it's great to have new recipes to send them. The bread is not too sweet but still satisfys the sweettooth.

    I love to make homemade bread, and this was delicious. It was un-like any other chocolate breads I have made in the past. I was the best.

    Delicious and EASY

    P Bodnar from YARDVILLE, NJ

    The first time I made this bread, I gave them away and received delicious comments. I made them again, deciding to keep a loaf for myself this time. I was glad I did. I cut a loaf into slices and then wrapped and froze them. I had a nice tasty after dinner snack for several meals. It's one of my favorite recipes.

    Chocolate + Walnuts + Yummy

    Sandra Hersh from Groton, MA

    A delicious bread. Quick and easy. My husband has been taking a slice each day for his mid-morning snack at his desk. I'll have to remove the one I have in the freezer faster than I thought.

    kim horvath from kailua, HI

    This bread was easy to make, and after some cooling I cut into thin slices and wrapped two pieces in colored plastic wrap, I handed out the little "gift breads" at work the next day, not only was the recipe easy, but it got me rave reviews all day long!

    chocolate nut bread

    beve freeman from Overland Park, KS

    I make sweet breads all the time and I have numerous recipes. This was good for a little chocolate flavor. I don't care for chocolate bread so the chips in this makes a great sweet bread without that heavy chocolate taste.

    Larrny Walters from Rogue River, OR

    This recipe is excellent!! My boys and I made this together for dessert and snacks (with two loaves)...came out perfect - not too dry, not too sweet..however we did take it out of the oven 10 min. early...simple and fun to do with the kids!! A+

    Start early for Christmas

    M Vaughan from

    This is a recipe I used last year at Christmas as gifts for my neighbors (and I made them 2 to 3 months in advance). I wrapped them in wax paper and put in freezer bags that zip tightly. Of course, wait until your are ready to present them as gifts before dripping the last of the chocolate on! Also great as a gift for those last minute invites at Holiday time.

    Interesting

    Lynn Heidorn from SEWARD, NE

    As previous reviewers said, I didn't find this bread to be sweet at all. It was a little dry, but, I ended up using it in french toast and it worked great there. The chocolate flavor really comes forward when it's warm and a dusting of powdered sugar is all it needs for sweetness. I left out the nuts and put in more chips. I think it would be good with the milk chocolate and peanut butter chips together.

  •  Star(s)

    Perfect

    Allie Gill from JACKSON, NJ

    I recently made this for my mothers department at work, and both loaves were inhailed! Everything came out just perfectly. I did use a larger bread pan and it turned out well. I would be careful when adding on the melted chocolate. Don't make the hole in the bag too large or the chocolate will pour out all over!

    Chocolate Nut Bread

    Margeret Harding from Kensal,, ND

    When I first looked at the recipe, I was disappointed because I was looking for a chocolate bread, but after looking it over, and changing a few things, I came up with a moist double chocolate bread. I left out 1 cup of flour and added 1/2 cup cocoa and increased the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. Then to help with the dryness that others had commented on, I substituted applesauce for the oil. All the rest is the same, and now I have my chocolate bread. Wonderful with peanut butter.

    Patti Stafford from Follansbee, WV

    I made this bread last night and it was a little dry. I even baked it a less time then it stated. I guess its a little too dense, maybe a little less flour might help. My husband said it was just Ok, hes my best critic if something isn't good.

    Review for Chocolate Nut Bread

    Natasha Puckhaber from Carmel, NY, USA

    This bread was very bland. I used the exact ingredients that the recipe called for and believe that too much flour is being used and not enough sugar.
