Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With a hand mixer in a large bowl, mix together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Add in the vanilla and bananas, mix until combined. Add in the eggs one at a time. Last, add in the sour cream until everything is well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Slowly fold this into the wet mixture until there are no lumps, saving about 1 tablespoon of the dried mix. Add the food coloring into the batter and mix well. Toss the chocolate chips in the remaining dry ingredients and fold them into the batter.
Spoon mixture into an 8x5 prepared loaf pan. Bake for 60-65 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool on a wired rack for 20 minutes, take out of loaf pan and set bread directly on the rack to cool completely.
Cream Cheese Icing
While the bread is cooling, make the icing by creaming the cream cheese in a medium-sized bowl with a hand or stand mixer. Add in the powdered sugar a little at a time, add in the milk and vanilla until smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
When the bread is cooled, pour the icing on top, enjoy!
