Bread – I would suggest you use white sandwich bread or milk bread slices, as I feel they taste the best when used for this sandwich. They are soft, have a slightly sweet taste, and become really crispy when grilled. Brioche is another great option too.
You can also use other bread options such as brown bread, whole wheat bread, or multigrain bread, but the taste won’t be as good as the white bread one.
Butter – Use unsalted butter to grill the sandwiches.
For Stuffing – To stuff the bread slices, we will need dark chocolate, walnuts, and chocolate syrup.
You can use other chocolate options such as milk chocolate or white chocolate. I prefer to use dark chocolate for its beautiful color and unique taste.
Add in walnuts for a delicious crunch in the creamy chocolate stuffing. You can also use other nuts such as almonds, cashews, pistachios, or a mix of dry fruits to add to the sandwich.
For Topping – I like to keep it simple but you can top the sandwich with ice cream, sliced banana, shredded chocolate, and chocolate syrup.
You can either go for vanilla ice cream, coffee ice cream, or a chocolate one.
Finally, finish it off with shredded chocolate and some more chocolate syrup. I would recommend you go for a good quality chocolate syrup, for the best taste and creamy texture.
Maybe try other fruits such as strawberries, raspberries, mango, peaches, or any other fruit that you prefer or in season.
How to make Chocolate Sandwich?
Chop 1.3 oz (50 g) dark chocolate into small pieces. I did not do that and my chocolate took time to melt.
Keep one bread slice on a board and spread half of the dark chocolate over it.
Drizzle 2 tbsp chocolate syrup and sprinkle 2 tbsp chopped toasted walnuts on top.
Cover with another bread slice.
Slather butter on both sides (1 tsp on each side) of the sandwich. Make the other sandwich in the same manner.
Grill the sandwiched until browned and crispy in a sandwich griller or on a skillet over stove top.
Top with ice cream scoop, chocolate syrup, shredded chocolate, and sliced banana and serve warm.
