Dark Chocolate Banana Bread

As we continue our collective shelter-in-place, we are spending more time than ever at home cooking and baking. Along the way, we've rediscovered the simple joy of baking a delicious banana bread. It is easy to make and enjoy.

The only way we could make it better? Add dark chocolate, of course.

Our banana bread is made with Parré Chocolat's 75% Dark Chocolate Drops. Crispy on the outside and soft in the middle this bread is a great breakfast or anytime snack. It can be easily warmed and enjoyed with a cup of hot cocoa.
