Tastes Great!, Member Tausha87

This was quick and easy to make and turned out very moist. I used Ghiradelli chocolate chips (milk chocolate) and my son and husband devoured them! Husband couldn't tell the difference from a pumpkin bread box mix with a bag of chocolate chips thrown in though, so I will make this when I am in a baking mood or have some extra time on my hands.
