Combine over hot (not boiling) water, Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels and butter. Stir until morsels are melted and mixture is smooth. Set aside. In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add molasses, 2 tablespoons caraway seed, salt, rye flour and melted morsels; beat well. Stir in all-purpose flour, 1 cup at a time, to make a soft dough.

Place dough in greased bowl; turn once. Cover and let rise in warm place 1 hour. Punch dough down; cover and let rise in warm place 45 minutes. Punch dough down; divide into 3 equal parts. Shape each into a ball and place on greased cookie sheet that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk (about 1 hour). Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In cup, combine egg and water; brush tops of loaves with egg mixture and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon caraway seed. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cuol on wire racks. Makes 3 loaves.
