{Recipe} Nutella French Toast

Dessert for breakfast? Yes please.

Rich Nutella filling sandwiched between two crispy, buttery chocolate chip toast; topped with cold, tangy yogurt and more chocolate chips and nuts. And a final drizzle of dark chocolate ganache *_* This would make any chocolate-lovers' day :)

French Toast

1 cup milk
2-4 tablespoons of your favorite hot cocoa mix
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter
8 rather thick slices of chocolate bread (or whatever your favorite french toast bread is!)

Dark Chocolate Ganache

3/4 cup heavy cream
9 ounces dark chocolate, chopped


Your favourite yogurt
Chocolate Chips
Assorted Nuts



In a microwave safe bowl add the cream and chocolate. Microwave on 30 second intervals, stirring after each until smooth. Place this in the freezer for 15 minutes or the fridge for 30 minutes, but no longer. You want the ganache to be spreadable or to be able to drizzle it.

French toast

In a glass measuring cup or medium size microwave safe bowl add 1 cup of milk. Microwave the milk for 2-3 minutes (depending on how powerful your microwave is) or until hot. Stir in 3-4 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix. Let cool 5 minutes.

In the meantime grab a 9x13 inch pan and whisk together the eggs, vanilla, and salt. Whisk in the hot chocolate.

Spread a generous amount of Nutella over one side of all the slices of bread. Sandwich the slices together to make sandwiches. 

Place the sandwiches in the hot cocoa egg mixture, cover the pan and place in the fridge for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes flip the sandwiches over so the other side of the sandwich is now in the egg mixture. Place back in the fridge for 15 minutes or let it sit overnight.

When ready to cook the french toast. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and coat generously with butter. When the skillet is hot, cook the french toast in batches (do not overcrowd) until golden and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes per side. 

Remove and serve immediately with yogurt, chocolate chips, nuts and a good drizzle of dark chocolate ganache.

 Enjoy! :)
