Celestial Chocolate French Toast

Several people have e-mailed for this recipe, however I can't take credit for it. I got this from Sammi Carters - Chocolate Dipped Death, the 2nd book in her Candy Shop Mystery books, which I highly recommend. There are several more GREAT recipes in each of her books!!!

What you need for 6 servings
3 1.55 oz milk chocolate candy bars (no nuts)
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1/4 teaspon salt
12 slices of day -old bread ( I just plain old white bread
2 tablespoons real butterpowdered sugar (for dusting at the end)

How to:

Break each candy bar in half, the short way. Grate just a little chocolate (no more than 1/2 teaspoon off of each piece) and save in a small bowl for later.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Pour half of this mixture into a large (13 x 9) ungreased baking dish.

Layer six slices of break horizontally over the egg mixture. Place one piece of candy bar in the center of each piece of bread. Top each slice with remaining pieces of bread like sandwiches. Pour the remaining egg mixture over the bread. Let this stand for at least 5 minutes so the bread can absorb the egg mixture.

On a griddle or in a large skillet, meth teh butter over medium heat. Fry sandwiches until golden brown on both sides. Add an additional 2 teaspoons of butter midway, if cooking in batches.

To serve, cut each sandwhich diagonally. Dust with confectioners' sugar and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
