Just another WordPress.com weblog

This sounded amazing, but I didn’t want to get my hopes up before making it. Chocolate+cheese+herbs? Luckily, the combo was fantastic. I used my homemade ciabatta, and splurged by using olive oil instead of my olive oil spray. I can’t say I’ll make this too often, but I really really liked it! I skipped the step about toasting the bread before adding the fillings.

Panini with chocolate and brie (Giada)

Ingredients

  • 12 slices sourdough bread
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces Brie cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

Directions

Preheat the panini grill.

Brush both sides of the bread with olive oil. Grill the bread slices until they begin to turn golden, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the panini grill and place 2 ounces of cheese on 1 slice of bread (the bottom half), top the cheese with 1/3 cup chocolate chips, and a sprinkle of basil. Top with another slice of bread. Continue with the remaining sandwiches. Return the sandwiches to the panini grill until the chocolate begins to melt, about another 2 minutes.

Cut the sandwiches into 2-inch wide rectangles or small triangles and transfer to a serving platter.
