Classic french toast with a decadent chocolate filling.
It's Valentines' Day! How you celebrating today? As I shared last week, it's not a huge deal around here. No big -overly -romantic stuff going on.
My day is going to be actually packed full with parent-teacher conferences. The school district labeled them as "Spring Conferences". Yeah..doesn't make sense to me either. Especially, with 600 feet of snow sitting around town, spring is the last thing on any body's mind.
But, despite it, that's my plan of the day. Very romantic, yes?
No matter how you feel about it or plan to spend your day, you can still celebrate with french toast. Not just your average french toast,though. This one is stuffed with chocolate, topped with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and served up with a side of strawberries. It's simply delightful!
Make sure to share it with the one you love this year...
Chocolate Stuffed French Toast
Prep Time: 00:15
Cook Time: 00:20
Ingredients (3 large sandwiches or 6 small,)
- 12 slices of thick french bread ( my french bread was small and I cut it in thicker slices, so, it depends on the bread you decided to use)
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 2-3 TBSP half/half
- butter, for the pan
In a bowl, whisk milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon together. Set aside.
In a saucepan, melt chocolate chips with half/half until smooth.
Spread chocolate mixture on one side of a bread slice, then, top with another slice, making a sandwich.
Dip entire sandwich into egg mixture. Coat well and shake off any extra.
Over medium heat, melt butter in a skillet.
Add coated sandwich to the skillet. Cook on both sides evenly until they are browned.
