1/2Tbl vegan Margarinesuch as Earth Balance (plus more for cooking)
4oz.vegan Chocolate Chipsplus more for garnish
FOR THE HOT CHOCOLATE:
Almond or Soy Milk & vegan Hot Chocolate Mix to equal TWO cups worth
Vegan Chocolate Chips
Coconut Whipped Cream
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.
