1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups bread flour
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon dry milk powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine or quick active dry yeast
1/3 cup sliced almonds


Make 1 Pound Recipe with bread machines that use at least 2 cups flour, or make 1 1/2 Pound Recipe with bread machines that use at least 3 cups flour.

Measure carefully, placing all ingredients except almonds in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Add almonds at the Raisin/Nut signal.

Select Sweet or Basic/White cycle. Use Medium or Light crust color. Remove baked bread from pan, and cool on wire rack.

If your bread machine has a 2-pound vertical pan, the loaf will be short, but still will have good texture and flavor. If your bread machine has a horizontal pan, however, there isn't enough dough to make a good loaf of baked bread.

If your bread machine doesn't have a Raisin/Nut signal, add the almonds 5 to 10 minutes before the last kneading cycle ends. Check your bread machine's use-and-care book to find out how long the last cycle runs.

Try This
Toast the almonds to give this chocolate bread even more almond boost. Sprinkle the almonds in a heavy skillet. Cook over medium0low hear, stirring them frequently, until they are golden brown and you can smell the toasty almond aroma. Pour them out of the skillet so they don't continue to brown, and let them cool before using.
