Chocolate French Toast

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

If you ask me, there's nothing better than chocolate for breakfast! This scrumptious recipe comes from Hersheys, although as usual I added my own notes about how to make it low-fat and dairy-free. I would definitely recommend including the optional cinnamon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs, milk, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, salt and cinnamon, if desired, in large bowl until smooth.
  2. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. Grease griddle with margarine, if necessary (or spray with non-stick cooking spray).
  3. Dip bread in egg mixture. Place on griddle. Cook about 2 to 4 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve immediately with powdered sugar or maple syrup, if desired.

THere is way more dip than is needed for this amount of bread. I used leftover garlic bread and it was surprisingly delicious!

Made for a nice breakfast. I used double the soaking liquid in order to get the right ratio for the bread. Do follow the directions and cook these over medium low, or they will burn. I think putting some chocolate chips on them after they have been flipped would be a good touch, and would make them nice and chocolate-y and sweet.

Just tried this, and liked it, but my dense whole wheat bread overpowered the flavor. I will definitely try this again with a lighter bread. Also, I found the chocolate flavor very mild, so for personal preference, I plan to try doubling the cocoa. My husband enjoyed cream cheese on his, and I enjoyed jam on mine. Thanks for posting - novel way to get my vitamin "C" fix first thing in the morning ;-)
