This year Valentine’s Day in on a Saturday, so what better way to say I love you than having breakfast in bed with your significant other? With breakfast in mind, I started looking around for something special and found a chocolate french toast recipe. Not this one. The one I found used cocoa mix, but it inspired me to tweak this other recipe for what I consider is the perfect chocolate french toast. I made my light version, using unsweetened cocoa powder and 12 packs of Stevia, instead of sugar. The result was a great semi-sweet chocolate taste. You can use brioche or your favorite bread, it even works well with regular sliced bread.
After making the french toast, comes the assembly. Spread Nutella, as much or as little as you like, lightly drizzle with maple syrup and add a few berries to your plate, not only for decoration. Adding berries makes it the perfect bite; and don’t forget the whipped cream!
