Tagalong Bread with Peanut Butter Spread

This might be my favorite recipe so far in this series.
It’s phenomenal.
It’s everything bread right out the oven should be:
warm, soft, aromatic… oh, and chock-full of tagalongs and chocolate chips.
Plus, I could easily eat the peanut butter spread with a spoon and just forget the bread–
and that’s really saying something, because (again) this bread is fantastic.
You’ll want to bookmark this one for sure!
Tagalong Bread and Peanut Butter Spread
Bread Recipe Modified from: Versatile Kitchen

    For the Bread:

    • 3 c. AP Flour
    • 3 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder*
    • 1 c. Sugar
    • 1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
    • 2 tsp. Baking Soda
    • 1 tsp. Salt
    • 1 c. Tagalongs (or other PB cookie substitution), crushed
    • 1/2 c. Chocolate Chips
    • 1 tsp. Vanilla
    • 1 1/2 c. Milk
    • 1/3 c. Oil
    • 1 Egg

    For the Peanut Butter Spread:

    • 4 oz. Cream Cheese
    • 1/2 c. Creamy Peanut Butter
    • 1 1/2 c. Powdered Sugar
    • 1 Tbsp. Milk
    • 1 tsp. Vanilla

    For the Bread:

    1. Whisk together dry ingredients, reserving a heaping tablespoon in a zip top bag.
    2. Whisk in the wet ingredients– when you can no longer use a whisk, switch to a sturdy rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Try not to over mix.
    3. Add the crushed cookies and chocolate chips to the zip top bag with the tablespoon dry ingredients. Shake to coat cookies and chocolate chips (this helps keep them from sinking to the bottom of the batter).
    4. Fold cookies and chocolate chips into the batter.
    5. Pour into two greased and parchment lined standard size loaf pans.
    6. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

    For the Peanut Butter Spread:

    1. In a stand mixer, whisk together the peanut butter and cream cheese.
    2. Gradually whisk in the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla– adding alternately until smooth.

    *If I could go back, I would have used Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa
    **Or any suitable substitute (Oreo PB Fudge, Keebler, etc)

      I think you’ve converted me to a Tagalong girl. I say “THINK” because I can only be truly convinced if I taste this concoction within the next 24 hours.
