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

This sounds good! I am dying to try this Giada recipe that is a panini sandwich with brie and chocolate. This reminds me of that! :drool:

I'm sure it could be made more pleasing to the eye. However I would skip the salt and orange. Naturally the best part of recipes is adapting them to your specific tastes. I'd still rather have a cookie :P

I think I'd pass on doesn't look appetizing and I have to be in the right mood for chocolate.

My aunt was just telling me this weekend how they went to eat at Emerils a few years ago here in N.O. and he was serving this chocolate bruschetta... she said the women at the table loved it, but the men - not so much.

I thought the same thing, onabanana! I'm sure these taste delicious but the way the bruschetta is on the bread just looks icky. Maybe if it was spread out a little more evenly?

I would make it a bit easier and just spread Nutella on it

I made something like this the other day, but it's kind of messy because I always end up heating the bread with chocolate in the microwave and it didn't have orange zest since I don't like the idea of mixing the flavor of that with chocolate. I also made chocolate/peanut butter fudge the other day and topped it with a sprinkling of sea salt.

Nuuuuuummy! I would think this would be great with a little bit of chopped fresh mint. Kind of like a faux Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookie. *banging head on keyboard in a fit of euphoria*
