Nutella French Toast

I was bad.

I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself.  I promise to do better, really I do.  But I was overcome with a craving for chocolate.  Do you ever get that?

I think us women know about chocolate cravings.  There's something about's creamy smoothness when it hits the tongue.  Melting in your mouth and the warm sensation that follows.  Oh my!  

So I had this craving the other night and it wouldn't stop...I had to have some chocolate.  All I had in the house was a jar of Nutella, cause I don't really keep chocolate in the house.  Plus, I was craving warm....melted chocolate.  You know the a hot baked chocolate chip cookie with the chips all melty and good.

So I decided to be very, very bad...I was going to make French Toast.  Late at night.
Not just any french toast.  Stuffed...with Nutella. AND made with half and half...cause that was all I had.  (I tried to make them seem less self indulgent by cutting them into cute little triangle sandwiches...cute..but I think I'm fooling myself)

And I did...and I ate it all...and it was GOOD!

No regrets.  Maybe tomorrow though.  I'm sure I'll get over it.

So if you are craving chocolate, and I know you are, try this french toast.  It's killer!

Nutella French Toast

serves 4 (2 triangles each)

4 slices of day old white sandwich bread
2 eggs
1 T splenda
1/2 c half and half
1 t vanilla
2 T butter
Nutella (about 1/4 cup)
Confectioner's sugar (if desired)

Slice each bread into 4 triangles, cutting diagonally.  

In a bowl whisk together eggs, Splenda, half and half and vanilla.  Dip the bread pieces on the bowl, dipping them down to ensure they are soaked.  

In a skillet over medium heat add 1 T of butter and allow to melt.  Add half the bread pieces to the skillet and allow to cook about 2 minutes, or until browned.  Turn over and cook the other side another 1-2 minutes.  Transfer to a plate and cook the remaining batch of french toast.  

Meanwhile add a dollop of Nutella to 4 of the cooked bread triangles, and top with another bread triangle   Remove the second batch from the skillet and continue to coat with Nutella making the remaining sandwiches.  Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar if desired and serve immediately.
