| posted Wednesday, Jul 31st, 2013

Chocolate-filled French Toast.
Prep Time: 25 min. plus refrigerating | Makes: 8 servings, 1 sandwich (175 g) each

What You Need

2 Slices challah (egg bread), 1/2 inch thick
1/2 cup (1/2 of 250-g tub) Philadelphia Chocolate Cream Cheese Product
6 Eggs
1 cup of milk
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Make It

Spread 6 bread slices with cream cheese product; cover with remaining bread slices. Lightly press edges together to seal. Whisk eggs, milk and extract in 13×9-inch dish until blended. Dip both sides of sandwiches in egg mixture, then arrange in same dish, stacking as necessary to fit. Refrigerate 30 min. 

Heat oven to 400°F. Place sandwiches in single layer on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, letting excess egg mixture drip back into dish before placing sandwiches on baking sheet. Discard leftover egg mixture. 

Bake 12 to 14 min. or until sandwiches are puffed and golden brown, turning after 7 min. Serve topped with syrup and nuts. 

Special Extra: 
Sprinkle with fresh raspberries just before serving.

Shortcut:
The French toast can be baked right away – just dip in egg mixture and bake as directed.
