Do you like Chocolate? This was kind of my kids creation too! Chocolate Stuffed French Toast. Yummy. Well - 2 of the 5 of us ended up liking it.
First I took a block of cream cheese and softened it.
Then I added some powdered sugar and Vanilla - how much - ummmm - how much does it look like...I'd say about 2 tsp of Vanilla and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar.
Then I added some cocoa powder. I'd say a little less than 1/4 of a cup.
Beat it up - look at that chocolaty goodness!
Then - in a separate bowl - beat an egg.
Add some cream - I don't know measurement - I hope "some" is good enough.
Sprinkle some Cinnamon (can you tell I don't measure)
Get your stack of bread, we use a lot.
Dip one side in the egg mixture (not both)
I did this two different ways - I put it on the panini maker - yes - again with my panini maker.
Then spread the mixture on it. (I also put the mixture on before I put it on the maker - that worked a little better).
Per my oldest direction - she wanted chocolate chips in the center too - who am I to argue with that!
Put the other side on - 1/2 dipped in the egg mixture - with the egg mixture hitting the hot parts of the panini press. If you notice - I used the regular skillet side - not the panini press side - I didn't want the lines on it - and it worked pretty good.
Here they are all lined up.
Then I closed the press - this way I don't have to worry about flipping them.
Put a little chocolate syrup on it - with a little whip cream (again my daughters suggestion) and you are ready to dig in!
My middle child wanted sprinkles - so she got sprinkles.
I am not a big whip cream person - so I just used regular syrup. It worked for me.
My little man was one of the ones that liked it. I think he liked the mess it caused!
Then my oldest decided to help clean him up - she actually did a pretty good job!
It was super super super chocolatly! With that being said - it seems to be more of an adult taste with the cream cheese. My husband doesn't like cream cheese - so he didn't like it too much. And even though it was oozing with chocolate - I think it was a little to sophisticaed for my girls. We ended up making plain french toast for them. I did however like it - it was REALLy rich. I mean rich!!! A nice tall glass of milk - and this ooey gooey chocolatey meal - would go perfect!
