  8. I just wish I still had your metabolism to eat all of these wonderfully chocolatey and peanut butter inventions.

  9. I agree! More bacteria! We are all just too freaked out about being so damn...clean. And you just go ahead with your 50 posts about chocolate. Who needs fruit?

  11. I confess to being a big weirded out by PB right now, which is too bad since I do love the stuff.

    I'd eat your bread even if I knew it was made with tainted peanut butter. As the old commerical goes, "Two great tastes that taste great together." (Of course there is a chance that you are so young you may never have seen those old Reese's commercials, in which case, I feel really old.)

  12. You're my hero. I'm seriously contemplating leaving work right now, to go home and make this bread.

    I couldn't agree more with you on the salmonella scare! There's nothing that could keep me from my PB...not even that disgusing article about the rats and roaches.

  13. I am not afraid! I will eat this whole loaf just to prove it! It looks wonderful!

  14. After having a discussion with my mom this morning about the whole salmonella thing (since mom knows best), we decided the exact same thing. If we ain't sick yet, keep on eating! :) Chocolate and PB is always a winning combo and this looks fantastic!!

  15. Chocolate bread doesn't sound strange at all! I like chocolate anything anyway! And if it has some pb with it even better. I don't even care for the salmonella, after all I eat raw eggs all the time!

  16. That looks awesome. I'm all for chocolate bread. :)

  17. I don't think you need to change your posts at all...chocolate in every recipe is fine with me! This one combines PB too which is a double whammy of deliciousness!

  19. I'm sick of the nonsense too - hell yes for PB bread!! :-D

  20. I keep eating peanut butter too. I don't have any of the tainted products, but I was eating the PB I have before the salmonella breakout, and didn't get sick, so figured I could keep going. And funny, I just made a cake with p/b icing but was reluctant to post because who wants to eat peanut butter now?

  28. all this talk of peanut butter has seemed to make me want it more. This bread looks delicious.

  29. Bah, the peanut butter is fine. What's a little salmonella, mold, cockroach eggs or rat feces gonna hurt? Quod me nutrit me destruit. ;)

    What kind of knife is that you have with the bread? I like it!

    ReplyDelete
  30. i personally enjoy a little rat flavor in my peanut butter...
    no. no i don't.
    i do enjoy your bread, though. it's a heck of an excuse to eat chocolate for lunch. :)

  32. Hi....I am wondering if there might be a mistake in the recipe. I just mixed this up and there is no way that 1/4 c water was anywhere near enough to even begin to moisten the dough. I added at least 3/4 c and think it still isn't enough. This sounds awesome and hope you can give your input as to the problem....thanks, Linda

  33. Thanks, Linda.

    I forgot to put the milk in the recipe. I believe it was a cup.

  34. Peanut Butter in a Yeast Bread??? I didn't even know you were allowed to do that. You're brilliant.

  35. When I saw this, all I could think of was, "I wanna make a fluffernutter sandwich outta that."
    Oh, yeah...

    ReplyDelete
  36. yum! I love anything with chocolate and peanut butter. i'm also looking for a chocolate-cherry bread recipe ... wonder if this recipe could be adapted?

    ReplyDelete
  37. all this peanut butter business hasn't stopped me from enjoying it either. i do know what you mean about a little salmonella never hurting anyone. your body needs to built up immunity to it once you've had it anyways... right?? haha

  38. Hahhaaha... I just got through eating cranberry trail mix with peanuts in it! YUM!
