egging me on

Today I've had a break from normal things to pause to admire some easter eggs. Smashing, really.

I'm not sure about the chocolate overload however, I may need to lay down for a while to recover.

Chocolate sandwiches, anyone?

Here's an interesting recipe for toasted bread with chocolate in the middle. Enough to scare the Easter bunny away!
Grilled Chocolate Sandwiches

Serves 4; Total time: 15 minutes
Brace yourselves for this one...

2 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
4 large slices granary Bread (cut 3/4 inch thick)
4 ounces thin semisweet chocolate bar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Icing 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 icing/dusting sugar before serving.
