Move over strawberries – chocolate has a new date this Valentine’s Day! I first tried the combination of chocolate & raspberry about five years ago while on a dinner cruise in Montreal. It was delicious! If you think chocolate with strawberries is yummy, just wait until you try chocolate + raspberries. Mmmm! Sometimes (and by sometimes, I mean always) I crave something sweet after supper. I try not to keep too many sweets in the house but I usually have chocolate chips in the pantry. The other night I was craving some sort of melted chocolate dessert so I came up with this super easy Chocolate Raspberry Panini.
My first thought was to use slices of cake as “bread” for this dessert but that was a crumbly mess. My second try was using cinnamon raisin bread & it worked out perfectly! You could grill this in a panini press or just heat it up in the frying pan until the chocolate melts.
Chocolate Raspberry Panini Recipe:
One sandwich is more than enough for two people. A big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top would be delicious too!
- cinnamon raisin bread
- chocolate chips
- raspberry jam
- fresh raspberries
- Spread raspberry jam on one slice of bread and then sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
- Lay raspberries evenly over the bread then place the other piece of bread on top to make your sandwich.
- Heat in a panini press or frying pan until the chocolate has melted.
- Grab extra napkins!
This is super messy to eat so I’d recommend using a fork instead of just picking it up with your hands. Either way, you’re going to need extra napkins.
