Grilled Dark Chocolate Sandwich
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.

Yield: 8 servings
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 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)
- 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.
