Chocolate Cranberry Loaves is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We all really loved this recipe. Nice, moist bread with a deep chocolate flavor brightened by the burst of cranberry! Had a great time baking and then decorating. None of the loaves made it to the gift basket as we ate them all. I'll be making more this week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe produces a very moist and tasty cake/loaf. I liked the texture of the cranberries and the mini chocolate chips. I piped on different "X-Mas" messages and had them as parting take home presents. I received numerous thank you's and that they were delicious. So they were very will received by my friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I personally thought the cranberry taste was a little overpowering, but the semi-sweet chocolate balanced it out a little. It's very cute tho! You can make it simpler by just sprinking powdered sugar over the top then dusting with cinnamon, which still looks really good.
