Buckle your seat belts folks. We’re about to take french toast to a whole new level.

A few weeks ago, I was making Mr. How Sweet eight pounds of healthy, crunchy chicken fingers and happened to take a glance at the side of the Kellogg’s Corn Flake box. On it there was a recipe for crispy french toast, and it stuck to me like glue.
And yes, I said eight pounds. Eight el bee’s. Do you think I’m joking when I say that Mr. How Sweet eats a lot? Haha. It’s not funny.

So I broke out the corn flake crumbs again.

While we’re on the topic of corn flake crumbs, I figure that you could make a healthier version of this by using whole wheat bread and a whole grain or spelt flake cereal – simply crush it into crumbs.
But it’s the holidays… and who wants to make something healthier?

Clearly I didn’t, so I used Texas toast.

Let it be known that I don’t even like white bread unless it comes in the form of Texas toast.

Initially, I was just going to make this peanut butter french toast. See that crunchiness up there?

But then my animal instincts took over.

And I just couldn’t help myself. So I did this.

It hurt so good.

Just imagine: soft, smooth bread inside, crispy and now crunchy outside, smothered in warm, melty peanut butter and oozing with velvety chocolate.

It really doesn’t get any better.

Am I right or am I right?


Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter French Toast

serves 2

4 slices thick bread

2 tablespoons butter

3 whole eggs

1/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 tablespoon cinnamon

pinch of salt

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup corn flake crumbs

1/4 cup peanut butter, melted

2 tablespoons chocolate chips, melted

In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk, cinnamon, salt and vanilla. On a plate, add corn flake crumbs and sugar, and mix well.

Preheat a large skillet on medium-low heat. Add bread to egg mixture and let soak on each side for about 60 seconds. Remove from egg mixture and thoroughly dredge through corn flake crumbs. Add 1 tablespoon butter to skillet and add bread. Fry until golden brown on each side, about 2-3 minutes each. Repeat with additional bread, using remaining tablespoon of butter for the next 2 pieces.

Top french toast with melted peanut butter and chocolate. Devour!

I bow down to the genius that created chocolate and peanut butter.

    8 lbs of chicken fingers isn’t that much when you break them down over 4 lunches. that’s only 2 lbs/lunch. that’s like meager portions, right?
