Pumpkin Chocolate Bread

Pumpkin Chocolate Bread

Chocolate adds so much richness and complexity to baked goods. When you add together pumpkin, Ritual Chocolate Chunks, and Cacao Nibs you get pure Fall magic. Sure, chocolate is delicious in its purest form, but it also has culinary potential. This Pumpkin Chocolate Bread is delicious and easy to make! It has the perfect flavors for Fall and makes two regular loaves perfect for sharing or freezing. In this recipe, we used both our Chocolate Chunks and Cacao Nibs.
