Breakfast, brunch, snack or dessert, this treat will suit your chocolate cravings. I wanted to make chocolate French toast but all the recipe I stumble upon were using chocolate powder on the batter and I wanted the chocolate to melt in between the slices of bread. I really thought about it. Putting the chocolate after the slices are done will not work because it might not melt properly. I decided then to put the chocolate after cooking one side of the bread slices then allowing the chocolate to melt. It worked. I used my personalized chocolate I made in Côte d’Ivoire by Axel Emmanuel. In case you did not know Côte d’Ivoire is the first producer of cocoa beans in the world. So imagine having breakfast with the authentic chocolate. I have been using it too in my Coconut-mint Hot Chocolate now also. I can’t explain the taste, I actually do not have the perfect words to describe it
For the video I asked my 6 years old to handle most of the work and he was so excited. we had fun making the video. The first time I made them I forgot to give them the syrup and they also forgot to ask about it. They are already sweet and delicious so no need for the syrup.
