Chocolate French Toast
This is a recipe which I received in my e-mail and can’t remember who I received it from. I copied it so fast that I forgot to copy the name. This is one recipe which I will definitely try, as I love anything that has chocolate.
1 loaf day old French bread
1 cup milk chocolate chips
5 beaten eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Your favorite syrup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with vegetable shortening.
Cut French bread into 6 slices, 1 1/2 inches thick. Using a small sharp knife, cut 2-inch long slits in one side of each slice, cutting 3/4 of the way through the bread to create a pocket.
Spoon 2 to 3 good size tablespoons of chips into each pocket and press to close.
Place the filled slices into the prepared baking pan.
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract, mixing well. Pour over the bread slices and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Bake uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve the French toast slices with your favorite syrup.
This would taste great with strawberry or raspberry syrup along with some fresh strawberries or raspberries and some whipped cream. Yummy! I have to make this one just for myself.
