Panini with Chocolate and Brie
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 12 slices sourdough bread
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces brie cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat the panini grill. Brush both sides of the bread with olive oil. Grill the bread slices until they begin to turn golden, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from the panini grill and place 2 ounces of cheese on 1 slice of bread (the bottom half), top the cheese with 1/3 cup chocolate chips and a sprinkle of basil.
  3. Top with another slice of bread. Continue with the remaining sandwiches. Return the sandwiches to the panini grill until the chocolate begins to melt, about another 2 minutes.
  4. Cut the sandwiches into 2-inch wide rectangles or small triangles and transfer to a serving platter.
