I used smucker's sugar free strawberry jelly, sara lee brand 'Texas Toast' and I left out the chocolate chips and it was still wonderfully delicious - my husband and our daughter ate it up! The heart shapes were a hit - Great recipe!
Just divine!!! Very rich and filling. Would be excellent without the chocolate also. Nice for a romantic brunch. Thanks for sharing!
I made for lunch for my DS but just using regular shaped bread, this is wonderful but very rich! my DH loved this, next time I make this I think I will omit the chocolate, thanks Rita!...Kitten:)
