Directions
Use the 1-pound recipe if your machine pan holds 10 cups or less of water. Add all ingredients except glaze to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer, adding semisweet chocolate pieces with flour. (If dough is too dry or stiff or too soft or slack, adjust dough consistency - see Adjusting Dough Consistency tip below.) Drizzle the cooled bread with Chocolate Glaze.

Chocolate Glaze: Sift together 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon SPICE ISLANDS Pure Vanilla Extract and enough milk (2 to 3 teaspoons) to make glaze of drizzling consistency.

Recommended cycle: Basic/white bread cycle; light or medium/normal color setting.

Adjusting Dough Consistency: After mixing a few minutes, the ingredients should turn into a smooth ball around the kneading blade. If the dough appears too stiff or too soft, add more liquid or flour in 1 teaspoon increments, until the proper consistency is reached. Do not add more than 3 to 4 teaspoons liquid or flour. The machine can not compensate for wide variations and may not bake the larger amount of dough thoroughly.
