Chocolate Bruschetta is A Creative, Tasty Dessert

When I saw this recipe for chocolate bruschetta, I had one of those why didn't I think of that? moments. Leave it to the folks at to come up with something so deliciously clever!

It takes one of my favorite appetizers — bruschetta — and turns it into a sweet, gooey treat. The chocolate-topped bread is seasoned with coarse sea salt and orange zest elevating the classic French breakfast — pain au chocolat — to a gourmet level.

Served with a glass of aged port, this would make an excellent finish to any dinner party. For the easy recipe, please
