1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons sugar
4 large eggs
8 (1-inch thick) slices French or brioche bread
Unsalted butter, for cooking
Maple syrup or chocolate sauce, for serving
Whipped cream, for serving
Mini marshmallows, for serving
In a shallow dish or bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, sugar and eggs.
Place a large sauté pan over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter. Once the butter has melted, dip each slice of bread in the chocolate milk mixture, allowing it to soak up the liquid on both sides then shaking off any excess.
Add the toast to the pan and cook until golden, about 2 minutes. Flip the bread once and cook it an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat the cooking process, adding more butter as needed, with the remaining slices of toast.
Serve the French toast topped with maple syrup or chocolate sauce, whipped cream and mini marshmallows.
