This is the perfect bread for PB&J sandwiches. Chocolatey but not too sweet on its own - I used a bittersweet dark chocolate - it really is at its best when slathered with peanut butter and strawberry jam. A nice crisp crust and a super moist crumb to the interior. I was very impressed with my bread machine!
