GF/DF Holiday Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Quick Bread

The first time I made this GF/DF Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Quick Bread it immediately became a family favorite dessert for the fall and winter holidays. The tart cranberries complement the rich chocolate so well. Additionally, if you are looking for that "little something" to give your kids' teachers, your neighbors and your hair stylist look no further, this is that perfect holiday gift!
