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.
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.
