* 2 (0.375-oz.) good-quality Ghirardelli chocolate squares
* 2 slices French bread
* 3 teaspoons butter, melted (no margarine)
* Powdered sugar
* Garnish: raspberries, strawberries, fresh orange sections
Place chocolate squares between 2 French bread slices; brush both sides of sandwich with 1 1/2 tsp. melted butter. Cook in a hot nonstick skillet over medium heat until chocolate is melted and bread is golden brown. Dust with powdered sugar. Garnish with raspberries, if desired.
Other good fillings to include with your chocolate would be raspberry jam, marshmallow cream, toasted pecans, peanut butter, toasted coconut and sliced bananas. All of them compliment the rich chocolate in your sandwich perfectly.
For a little fun, cut bread into heart or other desired shape before filling with chocolate and cooking. We all have great cookie cutters around the house. They're not just for cookies anymore☺
