Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 slices day-old bread, crusts removed
  • 3 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 ounces each), halved
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour half into an ungreased 13x9-in. baking dish. Arrange six slices of bread in a single layer over egg mixture. Place one piece of chocolate in the center of each piece of bread. Top with remaining bread; pour remaining egg mixture over all. Let stand for 5 minutes.
In a large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Toast sandwiches until golden brown on both sides. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Cut sandwiches diagonally; serve warm. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: Six 1-ounce squares of bittersweet or semisweet chocolate may be substitute for the milk chocolate candy bars. Heat squares in the microwave for 10 seconds before cutting into smaller pieces to place on the bread.

"This was amazing! I halved the recipe because it was only made for two people. I also used regualar 100% whole wheat sandwich bread and Hershey's Extra Dark chocolate to try and make it a tad healthier. This really hit the spot especially since I'm a huge chocolate lover."
