Hot Chocolate French Toast {Vegan}

Author Veg Life Staff

Ingredients

  • French Bread cut into 1" slices
  • FOR THE CHOCOLATE GANACHE:
  • 1/2 C Coconut or Soy Creamer
  • 1/2 Tbl vegan Margarine such as Earth Balance (plus more for cooking)
  • 4 oz. vegan Chocolate Chips plus more for garnish
  • FOR THE HOT CHOCOLATE:
  • Almond or Soy Milk & vegan Hot Chocolate Mix to equal TWO cups worth
  • 2-1/2 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Vegan Chocolate Chips
  • Coconut Whipped Cream

Instructions

  • Slice french bread into 1" slices
  • For the chocolate ganache, heat the creamer and butter in a small saucepan until warm and add the chocolate chips. Whisk until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and into the freezer until spreadable consistency, about 30 minutes.
  • For the hot chocolate, use your favorite vegan hot chocolate made with almond or soy milk heated in a sauce pan. You'll need two servings worth. To this, add the cornstarch and baking powder. Whisk together and transfer to a loaf pan.
  • Spread the ganache on one side of two slices of bread and add a few chocolate chips, sandwiching the two slices together. Do not overfill.
  • Transfer the sandwiches to the hot chocolate mixture and allow to soak for 15 minutes per side. Using a fork, gently poke holes into the bread to allow the hot chocolate to seep into it. Occasionally spoon hot chocolate over the bread.
  • Heat a fry pan or griddle and add a small amount of vegan margarine. Add the soaked sandwiches to the griddle and cook until browned on each side. When both sides are golden brown, allow to sit on a cutting board for a minute and cut in half. Serve immediately with leftover ganache, our coconut whipped cream and a few chocolate chips.
