I am a grown up, I have kids, a job, I even submitted my taxes on time this year! But that by no means means that I am ready to give up on my dream of eating chocolate for breakfast whenever I want to.
This recipe is perfect for a very adult and very messy brunch with some of your favorite people and a glass of milk. Just get ready for the sugar rush that follows!
2 Slices of Bread (French, Challah or Brioche)
4 Graham Crackers
2 Squares Lindt Milk Chocolate
1/8 Cup Half & Half Cream
1/2 Tbsp Vanilla
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
Pinch of Salt
Start off by slicing your bread and crushing up your graham crackers. Next toast your marshmallows by whatever means necessary! Try using a gas stovetop, barbecue on high, wood fire or any open flame. Once you have toasted your marshmallow, remove the toasted outside to put in your french toast as putting the whole marshmallow would have been too much gooeyness in the french toast. Using just the outsides gives you optimal gooeyness and maximizes that delicious roasted marshmallow flavour!
After this is done, whisk your eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a bowl large enough to dip your bread in. Dip your bread into the mixture, allowing it to soak for a few seconds, then place it in the crushed graham crackers, coating each side.
When you have crusted all your bread with the crushed graham cracker, place your chocolate and then the marshmallow and top it with the other slice of bread. In a pan on medium heat, add a knob of butter and once properly heated, cook the french toast for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown.
