National Chocolate Chip Day- Chocolate with Fleur de Sel Bruschetta

According to CNN (and only CNN as I cannot find another source), today is National Chocolate Chip Day.  Click here to find a great site that features 100 chocolate chip recipes.  For this special food holiday I thought I would offer up an easy, no bake, summer time chocolate treat from the lovely Martha Stewart.  This recipe takes like 10 minutes tops.  - ts

Semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
Thick crust bread
Fleur de Sel (if you can’t find this use coarse sea salt)

  1. Place thick slices of bread on an ungreased grill or grill pan. Toast each side for 5 minutes over medium heat. (If you don’t have a grill pan, broil bread until golden brown, about 1 minute per side.)
    For perfect golden-brown hatch marks, maintain medium heat. High heat will create instant dark lines without toasting the bread; low heat will slow the toasting process, which can result in blackened grill marks.
  2. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, and spoon over toasts. Sprinkle with fleur de sel.

    And this looks great. So glad you are picking up my considerable slack while I have to actually WORK at work. It’s the worst!
