Easy to make Chocolate Bread with frosting spiderwebs on top. This is one of my favorite Halloween dessert recipes, perfect for kids and spooky parties!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! We always have a blast and I love throwing Halloween parties. Can you believe it’s just over a month away?! If you’re hosting a Halloween party this year or if you’re in charge of bringing the sweet treat to a Halloween get together, you’ll definitely want to bake this bread!
Ingredients For Chocolate Bread
This chocolate bread recipe turns out so moist and super fudgy, thanks to several yummy ingredients. We’re adding in almost a full cup of Nutella and not only does it give this bread a delicious flavor, but it also gives the bread a moist cake-like texture. The recipe also calls for two mashed bananas. They not only make the bread moist, but add a divine sweet flavor to the bread. And then, of course, there’s the cocoa, which works with the Nutella for extra chocolatey goodness.
How To Make Chocolate Bread
The recipe is easy to make and takes 60 minutes to bake, with very little hands on time. You’ll need a bread loaf pan to bake the batter in.
- Start by adding the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg to a large mixing bowl. Those are your dry ingredients.
- Now, grab two ripe bananas – you know those bananas that you let go brown?! They are PERFECT for this chocolate bread! Mash them up in a bowl, using a fork.
- Next, add the softened butter, brown sugar, eggs and Nutella in another mixing bowl. Stir it all together until fully combined. Time to add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well until everything is fully combined. Once you’ve mixed the batter, pour it into the bread loaf pan.
- Bake for 60 minutes at 350ºF. Allow the bread to cool before removing it from the loaf pan and cutting the bread into slices.
Easy Halloween Dessert Recipe
If you’ll be serving this chocolate bread for Halloween, like me, I suggest you go that extra step and make spider webs using vanilla frosting. However, if you’d rather leave off the spider web design, that’s totally okay too.
To make the spider web design, place your favorite vanilla frosting into a pastry bag. You can use store bought frosting or use a homemade frosting recipe. Using a small fine tip, decorate spider webs on each piece of bread, using toothpicks to finely design the webs if you want.
This chocolate bread recipe makes twelve servings, perfect for a Halloween party! If you have any leftovers, or are just baking this for a small family, then you can freeze the remaining slices. Simply wrap them up all together or individually and store in a freezer-safe bag. I doubt you’ll have any leftovers! Ha!
