Both simpler and more decadent than a chocolate croissant, a grilled chocolate sandwich is a marriage of bread and chocolate in which the two components are evenly matched.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat evaporated milk just until boiling. Add chocolate, let stand for 1 minute, then whisk until smooth. Let cool slightly.

  • Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Divide the chocolate mixture on the unbuttered side of 4 slices, leaving a little border. Press chocolate chips and nuts, if using, into the chocolate. Cover with the remaining slices of bread, buttered-side up, and press lightly.

  • Cook the sandwiches in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Turn over, press with a spatula, and cook until nicely browned and the chocolate is barely melted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Serve warm.

Simple and fast to make. No real need for the butter. I used the olive oil spray and added walnuts. It is rich and delicious. A quick treat to have once a month;) Read More

I have a version of this sandwich every morning. No need for the extra calories of the evaporated milk. I simply toast one slice of multi-grain bread spread with butter (optional) and 1 ounce of melted dark chocolate. Delicious! Read More
