Grilled chocolate sandwich

Happy Tuesday, my friends. Have you heard of these delicious sandwiches? If you haven’t let me be the first to tell you, they will change your lives forever the moment you make them.

G-man wanted to make a dessert one night and started to search for ideas. He came across this recipe and knew it was something we needed to make. I picked up the ingredients wondering what in the world he was thinking wanting grilled chocolate sandwiches but kept my reservations to myself and brought everything needed for it, home.

After dinner, we got everything ready and went to work.
It should be noted that its “required” to drop the whisk and have it roll across the top of your stove. If it doesn’t do this, your chocolate won’t taste as good.

Ok, so maybe it’ll taste just as good if not better if you don’t drop it, but I guess you’ll never know unless you do it.


These are incredibly delicious. Not too sweet like you would think (or like I was thinking). They’re just perfect.

1/4 C evaporated milk (also can use 1/2 and 1/2 or heavy cream)
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 Tbsp softened butter (for spreading)
8 slices of whole wheat bread
3 Tbsp semi-sweet chocolate
chopped hazelnuts or any nuts (optional)
sliced fruit – strawberries or bananas (optional..and very good)

1. Heat milk  until just boiling, add bittersweet chocolate, let stand for 1 minute, then whisk until smooth. Let cool slightly.

2. Spread thin layer of butter on one side of each slice of bread. Divide melted chocolate onto each unbuttered side of bread, leaving a small boarder. Sprinkle chocolate chips onto each slice, top with other slice of bread and press down gently.

3. Grill sandwiches on med-high heat for 1-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and chocolate is barely melted. Serve warm.

The 2nd night we made these, we used ‘barely sweet’ chocolate and it wasn’t as good. Bittersweet chocolate is what you need to melt to make them amazing.

Run, don’t walk to the store to get everything you need to make these. Your family will thank you eternally for making them.

Pin It Now!

Mmm, those look good. Think I'll try them with coconut milk instead of cream - little buddy seems to be able to handle butter and chocolate now.

here in the south we have a delicacy much like this and the name of it is slipping my mind! imagine a hotel waffle maker as I am telling you the directions. take pie dough and place on one side of the cast iron contraption (seriously, I cannot recall the name of it) pile high with chocolate, fruit, whatever you want inside your *pie* top with another piece of pie dough. close the contraption ;-) which seals the ingredients inside. it has a long handle and you place it over a bonfire to cook. oh. my. goodness. we make those at the lake! cannot wait for the children to be out of school!

it was bugging me so much I googled it... campfire pie iron is the name of the contraption. I will sleep so much better tonight knowing I figured that out!

I wish I had some evaporated milk RIGHT NOW because I would totally make these tonight! Going to the store tomorrow...yes, yes I am!


{I dont know why I said that...I guess that's how excited I am. I just can't contain my Texas-ness}
