• Cooking Time: 5
  • Servings: 2
  • Preparation Time: 10


  • Unsalted butter
  • 4 slices sweet or sourdough French bread or firm white sandwich bread
  • About 2 ounces broken or chopped semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, or 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • Coarse sea salt (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar mixed with 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)


  • Butter one side of each slice of bread generously. In a skillet big enough to hold them, cook the slices butter side down over medium heat, just until pale gold on one side.
  • Cover two of the slices with chocolate. Flip a naked slice on top, butter side up. Cook, turning the sandwiches as necessary, until the chocolate is softened and the sandwiches are browned on both sides.
  • Serve immediately, sprinkled with a pinch of sea salt or a dusting of cinnamon sugar, if you like.


Crusty, hot, and melty chocolate sandwiches make a decadent snack, but cut into daintier portions and nestled with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, they make a dynamite dessert for company. They're fun too.
