Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Bread

As you probably can tell by the title this is not one of those healthy recipes. But I had to share it because I made some this morning for gifts and of course I had to try some for myself (after my taste-tester said I must!) The original recipe is from
1/2 cup butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk
6 oz chocolate chips
* Optional: 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon (for the top)

Cream together sugar, butter, cream cheese, and eggs. Add vanilla, salt, and baking powder. Add flour bit by bit mixing as you go, keeping the mixture smooth. Add milk until you have a creamy dough (you might need to adjust the milk to use a little more). Then stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into greased and floured bread pans - I used parchment paper in medium sized loaf pans. Fill 2 loaf pans 1/2 to 3/4 full. You could also use a bundt pan. Bake for 50 -55 minutes at 350 degrees or until tops are golden brown. You can also use mini loaf pans and bake for 30-35 minutes. Yields 2 loaves or 3-4 minis.
