Need a warm way to start the day or a gift for neighbors during the holiday season? Try these easy and homemade Nostalgia Datenut Loaves. This chocolate chip date nut bread recipe packs a loaf full of roasty-toasty walnuts, chewy dates and sweet HERSHEY'S Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. We love the addition of dates that boast a caramel-like flavor. It's a treat that's good both for breakfast and as a whipped cream-topped dessert!  While you've got the HERSHEY'S Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips and walnuts out, grab those ripe bananas and make this moist, delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.
