I was fooled into making this recipe. Here’s the story. I subscribe to PureWow e-newsletters and a recent recipe was for Chocolate Bread. Chocolate. Bread. Chocolate and bread. When I opened the email, I was thinking “These are my two greatest weaknesses,” but that’s not completely true. I would probably only say one is a serious weakness, the other is a sporadic temptation. Can you guess which one is the weakness? It’s the bread. I love bread. Which is funny b/c I don’t eat it very often but good bread? With butter or olive oil? AND SALT?? OH MAN that’s tough to turn down. Chocolate on the other hand? That depends on what it is. Something warm and gooey from the oven? Yes. Whatever it is, a chocolate warm gooey something sounds AMAZING. But random chocolatey candy? Meh. Whatevs.

However, after doing some recipe comparisons and reading the comments, the PureWow version seemed like a bad idea. For one, there’s no sugar in the recipe. Does that seem strange to anyone else?
