Chocolate French Toast Sandwhches

Are your ready for this recipe? I was on the hunt for some new dessert recipes for a family get together when I came across this delicious recipe. It takes a little time but its time well spent.

Take a loaf of french bread and cut 16 slices about an inch thick.

Lay the bottom slices for the sandwiches in a 9x13 pan, bigger if you have one. Then take chocolate chunks, or if you can find a brick of chocolate chunk it up and lay a few pieces on each slice. Though I don't have a picture of this, go ahead and place the tops of the sandwiches on top of the chocolate spotted bread. :)
In a small bowl, whisk together 4 eggs, lightly beaten, 1 1/3 cups milk, 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
Pour the mixture over the chocolate sandwiches and let this sit for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes carefully flip the sandwiches over, then cover with plastic wrap and let this sit overnight, or at least 2 hours before you cook it.

Before you cook this wonderful breakfast food, let it sit at room temp for 30 minutes, then melt 1/4 cup of butter and drizzle this over the tops of the sandwiches.
Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until the tops turn a golden brown. Serve with a sprinkle of confectioners sugar and try not to eat the entire pan in one sitting.
