Tips for Making Chocolate Banana Bread
For this Chocolate Banana Bread, our favorite brownie mix to use is the Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Mix. I like it because it has three kinds of chocolate chips — milk, semi-sweet, and dark. One thing to remember when making this bread is that some brownie mixes come out really gooey in the middle and then bake a little more while they are cooling, so doing the classic “toothpick test” on this bread can be a little misleading. Be careful not to over-bake the outside. It is also important to let it cool the full two hours before slicing it — which is hard to do because this bread smells SO amazing when it is cooking. I wanted to eat the whole loaf the second I pulled it out of the oven, but if you slice before it is completely cooled it won’t hold its shape very well. We also dusted it with a little powdered sugar and served it with a BIG glass of milk (you will need it because this bread is so rich and chocolate-y).
