Chocolate Sandwich





We all know that the breakfast is the most important and certainly should not skip it. We also know that there are super-healthy versions of the most important meals, such as porridge, eggs, whole sandwiches, but sometimes we can afford some sweet sin, right?

Chocolate is always the number one choice for the children so this recipe is one of the ways to bring joy to your children. My son and his friends really enjoy this meal.
Although this is not a healthy meal sometimes you just need to meet the needs of your children.
If you do not have time to prepare dessert this is the perfect solution for you and your family members.


Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 200gr of bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 8 slices thin sandwich bread
  • 2 tablespoons bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons chopped toasted hazelnuts


Preparation:

Heat milk just until boiling. Add chocolate, let stand for 1 minute, then spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Divide the chocolate mixture on the unbuttered side of 4 slices, leaving a little border. Press chocolate chips and nuts, into the chocolate. Cover with the remaining slices of bread, buttered-side up, and press lightly. Cook the sandwiches in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Turn over, press with a spatula, and cook until nicely browned and the chocolate is barely melted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Serve warm.

Add sour cream and oil; toss with a fork to combine with the dry ingredients. Sprinkle water over the mixture. Toss with a fork until evenly moist. Knead the dough with your hands in the bowl a few time, he mixture will still be a little crumbly. Turn out onto a clean surface and knead a few more times, until the dough just holds together. Divide the dough in half and shape into 5-inch-wide disks. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.


To prepare filling:

Combine apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and pinch of salt in a large bowl. Reserving 4 cups, transfer the rest of the apple mixture to a oven. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the apples are tender and beginning to break down, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the reserved apples and 2 tablespoons flour; let cool for about 30 minutes. To assemble & bake pie: Position a rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 425°F.

Peel off the top sheet and invert the dough into a 9 1/2-inch deep-dish pie pan. Peel off the remaining paper. Scrape the filling into the crust. Roll the remaining portion of dough between sheets of parchment or wax paper into another 13-inch circle. Peel off the top sheet of paper and invert the dough onto the fruit. Peel off the remaining paper. Trim the crust so it overhangs evenly. Tuck the top crust under the bottom crust, sealing the two together and making a plump edge. Flute the edge with your fingers. Combine 1 teaspoon granulated sugar and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Brush the crust with egg white and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar. Cut 6 steam vents in the top crust. Bake the pie on the bottom rack for 25 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 370° and continue baking until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling, 20 to 30 minutes more.
