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)
- 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.
- 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.
