What's more convenient than a bread machine for fresh loaves of bread? Knowing that you can enjoy your favorite nutty treat anytime when you keep an extra loaf tucked away in your freezer!
Add milk, eggs, water, butter, vanilla, both flours, sugar, cinnamon, salt, yeast and 1/2 cup of the chocolate pieces to the bread machine according to the machine's directions. Select the 'dough' cycle. When the cycle is complete, remove the dough from the machine, punch it down, cover and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Divide the loaf in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 10 x 7 inch rectangle. Divide the 1/4 cup of chocolate pieces and the walnuts between the separated dough pieces sprinkling them on evenly and lightly pressing them in.
Beginning at a short side, roll up each rectangle into a spiral before sealing the seams and ends. Place the loaves with the seam sides down into 2 greased 8 x 4 x 2 inch loaf pans. Cover the pans and let them rise in a warm place until they are nearly double their original size (usually between 35 to 45 minutes).
Bake in a 350 degree F oven for about 30 minutes or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove the bread from the pan and cool just a bit on a wire rack.
In a microwaveable bowl, combine 2 tablespoons chocolate pieces and the shortening. Heat on HIGH for 30 to 45 seconds or until the chocolate is soft enough to stir smooth. Drizzle the chocolate mixture over the slightly cooled bread.

I need bread machine recipes for breads that are on the sweet side, for snacks. Also, I need recipes to feed an extremely picky 10 year old.
1 c warm water
2 T olive oil
1/2 c sugar
3 2/3 c. all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp yeast
Put in dough cycle. Take out, divide into 2. Roll each with your hands to make 12 in "worms". Place on greased cookie sheet, Let rise for 20 minutes. Bake 350 for 9-11 minutes.
2/3 c. milk (warm)
1 1/2 T marg
1/2 c. sugar
2 c bread flour
2 1/2 tsp yeast
Bread - dough cycle - take out and place in bread pan. Let rise till double. Bake 350 for 30 minutes. Tent top of bread with aluminum foil for all 30 minutes, Remove and brown top in about 2 minutes. It keeps from over browning top of bread.
Cinnamon Bread - take out after dough cycle. Gently shape into 9x12. Lay on grease surface. Combine 1/2 c sugar, 1 T flour, cinnamon to taste. Pour over top of bread and roll up. Follow above baking instructions.
This makes wonderful dinner rolls.
I would be better able to reply to the request for recipes for the picky 10 year old if I either 1/ knew what he or she DID like or 2/ what he or she DOES NOT LIKE (whichever list is shorter. I have lots of recipes, but I will need help from you to narrow it down.
Whether girl or boy-everyone loves this bread!
Chocolate Chip Bread
Makes a 1-1/2 lb. Loaf
1/4 C. water
1 C. warm milk
1 egg (room temp.)
4 T. soft butter
1 c. Miniature Chocolate Chips (6-oz. pkg.)
Put all ingredients in the pan in the order listed, except for the Chocolate Chips. Select Basic or White Bread setting and crust setting (I prefer the light settingjbs), and push Start. When the machine beeps from the end of the 2nd kneading, add the chocolate chips.
Can also add chopped pecans or walnuts, dried cherries, or well-drained and chopped maraschino cherries, or dried cherries, etc
I have made this using the chocolate chips, chopped pecans, & maraschino cherries & it is excellent! When using maraschino cherries, I put the juice into the measuring cup & add only enough milk to make what the recipe calls for. I also cut the cinnamon back to 1/4 t., & the sugar back to 1 T. because the maraschino cherry juice is sooooo sweet!
