Chocolate Bread Recipe

Rustic Bread With Dark Chocolate, Olive Oil, and Salt

How did you enjoy Mother's Day? OnSugar blog Fresh Tart celebrated with pan au chocolat.

Bread, chocolate, oil, and salt.  Could there be a better combination? Could there be an easier combination? Mother's Day, any day, simply beautiful.

See her recipe and step-by-step images when you read more.

Slice crusty bread into thin slices, drizzle with really good olive oil.

Toast in a hot oven until crisp and golden, scatter with dark chocolate pieces. Now we're talking...

Heat until chocolate melts and spread over the toasts. Lick the knife (use a butter knife to be safe). Drizzle toasts with a bit more olive oil.  Lalalaa!

Finish with a light shower of crunchy salt, take a huge bite. To quote one of my very favorite food bloggers, Joy the Baker, "Holy Heckballs." Yeah. Happy Mother's Day!


Rustic Bread with Dark Chocolate, Olive Oil, and Salt

From Tapas A Taste of Spain in America by Jose Andres

Serves 4

4 ½-inch-thick slices rustic bread (good country bread with a thick crust and light interior; don't slice too thick)
4 oz. good dark chocolate or other chocolate you enjoy
4 Tbsp. Spanish (or other best quality) extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse sea salt to taste

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle some olive oil on a baking sheet.  Press bread slices into the oil, drizzle a little over the tops, and toast the slices of bread in the oven, about 3 minutes/side until golden brown. Using a knife, break the chocolate into small pieces. Scatter them over the toasted bread, then place the bread back in the oven until the chocolate melts, about 2 minutes. Drizzle with a bit more of the olive oil, sprinkle a little salt on top, and serve.

I've made these as appetizers for the holidays. I also sprinkled some tangerine zest.

I had to use Nutella, and oh, it's so yum good. My son loves it too! :drool:

Thanks ladies! Definitely easy enough for kids to make for their mom :) I thought of Nutella as I made this, it's got a lot of the same things going on.

Holy crap! I didn't have any chocolate in the kitchen, so I made this with Nutella instead. :drool:
