Directions for: Banana Chocolate French Toast with Hazelnut Chocolate and Strawberries


6 large eggs

1 ½ cup chocolate milk

2 Tbsp pure vanilla extract

½ tsp ground cinnamon

4 ripe but firm bananas, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch rounds

½ cup hazelnut chocolate spread

12 slices bread, 1/2 inch thick, such as brioche

8 Tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter

4 Tbsp vegetable oil

Pure maple syrup

1 cup strawberries, halved

¼ cup milk chocolate shavings

Powered sugar for dusting


1. Whisk together eggs, chocolate milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, in a medium bowl, and set aside. Lay out 6 slices of bread on work surface. Top each slice with the hazelnut chocolate spread and sliced bananas. Top with remaining bread slices; press gently to seal the sandwiches.

2. Place sandwiches in a shallow baking dish (or two dishes) large enough to hold them in a single layer. Pour egg mixture over bread, and soak 2 minutes. Carefully turn sandwiches over, and soak until bread is soaked through, about 2 minutes more.

3. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry half of the French toast until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Garnish with strawberries, shaved chocolate, maple syrup and powered sugar.
