Chocolate French Toast



If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, this recipe for Chocolate French Toast will turn him into your slave for life.

Oh. My. Goodness.

If your sweetheart likes chocolate, you must, must, MUST make this for him. It was delicious – to put it mildly. And it was pretty simple to make, which makes it even better.

Think about making your Valentine a special breakfast and make sure you include this recipe as the focal point!






Cut crusts off bread




Mix egg, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt together and pour into a baking dish or bowl.




Put a piece of bread in and top with half a Hershey's bar.



Put another piece of bread on top and pour batter over to completely cover



Soak bread for a couple minutes then remove to warm skillet. I soaked my sandwiches one at a time and used a square bowl rather than a casserole pan.



Fry until golden brown on both sides



Remove from skillet, slice in half diagonally and dust with confectioner's sugar.




Chocolate French Toast




Chocolate French Toast
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
12 slices day-old bread, crusts removed
3 plain Hershey’s milk chocolate candy bars, halved
2 tbsp. butter
Confectioner’s sugar

In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour half of the mix into a 13 x 9 x 2 inch casserole dish. Arrange six slices of bread in a single layer over egg mixture. Place one piece of chocolate in the center of each piece of bread. Top with remaining bread and pour on the rest of the egg mixture. Let stand for about three minutes. (Note: If you do not have day old bread, toast it a bit to dry it out or cut down the time you let it stand in the egg mixture. You do not want the bread to get soggy because it will result in a mushy mess! Not that I would know these things first hand. But trust me on this one!).

In a large non-stick skillet or griddle, melt butter over medium heat. Fry sandwiches until golden brown on both sides. (If you do not have a skillet large enough to cook these all at once, soak them one at a time in the casserole dish so they do not absorb too much liquid.)

Remove from pan, cut in half diagonally and dust with confectioner’s sugar. Garnish with fruit if desired and watch your sweetheart savor the sweet goodness of chocolate french toast.

Happy Valentine’s Entertaining,

She who needs chocolate
