Happy Valentine's Day:

I have little time for celebratory stuff - sketches and teaching class tonight (my poor students. I'm bringing them some Seattle's Best truffles as consolation), but I'm hoping to have a few minutes to make this decadent sounding dessert before going. I found it on

Grilled Chocolate Sandwiches

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons milk

4 large slices challah or Italian Bread (cut 3/4 inch thick)

4 ounces thin semisweet chocolate bar

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

1. In a large, shallow dish, whisk together eggs and milk; set aside.

2. Form two sandwiches with the bread and chocolate (break chocolate as necessary to cover bread without extending over edges); dip both sides of sandwiches in egg mixture to coat.

3. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat; transfer sandwiches to skillet. Cook, pressing occasionally with a spatula, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate. Cut in half, and dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.

There can never be too much chocolate...
