This was fantastic. I made it for my children and husband and they loved it. I uses chocolate chips in half and then cinnamon chips in the other half. The kids loved the chocolate and Husband and I loved the cinnamon. I will definitely make these again. Thank you so much!!!!

This was very good and so easy to make! I'd love to try the cinnamon chips/bark as the chocolate was very very rich...delicious though! I also used a smidge of sugar free syrup and butter spray on top as my bread got really really crispy. I love that this is made the night before...we popped it in the oven the next night for a quick and easy meal! Thanks for sharing...I will definitely make this again.

Really nice little breakfast "casserole"! Comes together quickly, and those little chocolate chips (I used mini's) are just so CUTE! I also used regular bread (but would recommend the French) and 6 eggs. Also, I buttered the pan instead of veggy spray. Used a pat of butter at the plate too...and a good douse with maple syrup. Just what we needed for a good hearty breakfast (along with a side of pork links) for a busy morning butchering 130 fryer chickens!
