Grilled Chocolate Sandwiches
Makes 2 sandwiches
Serves: 2
  • Unsalted butter or olive oil
  • 4 slices sweet or sourdough French bread or firm white sandwich bread
  • About 2 ounces broken or chopped semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, or ⅓ cup chocolate chips
  • Coarse sea salt (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar mixed with ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  1. Butter one side of each slice of bread generously or pour 2 T olive oil in skillet and swirl to coat.
  2. In a skillet big enough to hold them, cook the slices butter side down over medium heat, just until pale gold on one side.
  3. Put chocolate on two of the slices. Cover pan to make chocolate melt quicker.
  4. Flip a naked slice on top, butter side up.
  5. Cook, turning the sandwiches as necessary, until the chocolate is softened and the sandwiches are browned on both sides.
  6. Sprinkle with sea salt and/or cinnamon-sugar, if using, and serve immediately.
  7. Variation: Spread 2 T of peanut butter on the other slice of bread to make a Grilled Peanut Butter and Chocolate Sandwich.
