Get ready for some pumpkinified deliciousness.
Mix sugar and butter with an electric mixer. Add eggs, water, pumpkin and flour mixture until moistened.
Add chocolate chips. Mixture will be a little thick like this.
I like to sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top of the batter
with about a tablespoon of sugar on each loaf. It gives your bread a delicious crust.
Let cool. Slice and enjoy. It makes two loaves...one to eat and one to share (or not *wink*).

Heat oven to 350 degrees. grease bottom only of two 8x4 inch loaf pans. I like using Bakers Joy.
In medium bowl, stir flour, baking soda, salt,cinnamon and nutmeg until mixed; set aside.
In large bowl, beat 2 cups sugar and the butter with electric mixer on medium speed 1 to 2 minutes or until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in water and pumpkin on low speed. Add flour mixture; beat on low speed about 1 minuet or until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread evenly in pans. Sprinkle tops with remaining 2 tablespoons chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons sugar.
