Buttermilk Chocolate Bread

This is seriously the best chocolate bread ever. I feel like anything that has buttermilk in it is just amazing! The buttermilk makes it so moist and delicious. You know the amazing chocolate muffins that Costco makes? Well this taste exactly like them! Put some butter on it while its warm and this bread will knock your socks off, one of my favorite breads of all time!
