If you want to make this “double” chocolate cherry friendship bread into a “triple” chocolate bread, you can add a handful of mini chocolate chips or roughly about a 1/2 cup and that will transform this bread into an incredible, chocolaty, bread dotted with cherries and chocolate chips.

I’ll let you in on another “secret.” If you plan on making a chocolate dessert for dinner tonight, save at least one cup of your morning coffee. Replace all or some of the liquid called for in any chocolate recipe with coffee. Coffee and chocolate go extremely well together. Coffee enhances chocolate and visa versa. Start by adding a small amount of cold coffee to your next batch of brownies and see what you think. Cinnamon, coffee and chocolate? That’s a another post altogether:)
