  • Makes
    5 mini loaves (6 slices each)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups applesauce
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 5 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash salt

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the melted chocolate chips, eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with applesauce just until moistened. Fold in miniature chips.
  • Divide batter among five greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans, about 1 cup in each. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • For glaze, combine the chocolate chips, butter and water in a saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in confectioners' sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth. Drizzle over cooled loaves.
Editor's Note: Two 8x4x2-in. loaf pans may be used; bake for 50-55 minutes.
