Yes, you read correctly.
The chocolate sandwich.
While this is a product of my pregnancy brain (and stomach) I would eat this pregnant or not. One of my favorite pastries is the chocolate croissant. It is impossible for me to go to a bakery and not get one. Some have been mind blowing and some have been less than stellar but as long as it has chocolate, it's very hard to complain. The other day I was craving one around 3:00 in the afternoon. I then realized I had a perfect opportunity to ruin my dinner with some experimenting in the kitchen. So while the boys were passed out for their nap, I tip toed around the kitchen gathering my ingredients.
Basically I made a grilled cheese sandwich but without the cheese... Instead of a slice of dairy goodness, I placed a layer of chocolate chips between two pieces of honey wheat bread. Then I cooked it just like I would a grilled cheese! I made another sandwich with chocolate AND strawberries. Then I realized that the combinations for this type of sandwich, errrr dessert are endless! You could do chocolate and peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallow paste, nutella and fruit etc. Seriously so many ideas.
Peter woke up while I was working (he heard me open a bag of chocolate chips) but he opted out of trying my creation.
The finished product was not disappointing.
Both desserts (yeah let's go with that) were delicious and I throughly ruined my appetite for dinner. While it was not a chocolate croissant, the buttery chocolatey goodness did the trick. If you decided to give this random concoction a try, let me know! I'd love to see what you use in yours!
Hopefully this helps with the Monday blues!
