Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (160 votes)

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.

"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! "
Grilled Dark Chocolate Sandwich

Makes: 8 servings

Active Time:

Total Time:


  • 1/4 cup fat-free evaporated milk
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 8 slices thin whole-wheat or white sandwich bread
  • 3 tablespoons bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons chopped toasted hazelnuts, (optional)


  1. Heat evaporated milk just until boiling. Add chocolate, let stand for 1 minute, then whisk until smooth. Let cool slightly.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
