Ingredients

  • 16 egg bread (about 1 loaf)
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) hazelnut chopped and toasted
  • 1/4 cup (50 ml) chocolate sauce

Method

Remove crusts from bread. Spread half of the slices with chocolate hazelnut spread. Place remaining slices on top. Arrange sandwiches, just touching, on large rimmed baking sheet.

In bowl, whisk eggs, milk, granulated sugar and vanilla; pour over sandwiches. Turn over; soak until liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.)

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until puffed and golden, about 30 minutes. Cut each in half diagonally. Dust half with icing sugar; dust remaining sandwiches with cocoa powder. Arrange 1 of each on each plate. Sprinkle with hazelnuts; drizzle with chocolate sauce.
