Description

The Triple Choc Toastie is a dessert toastie, a snack toastie, a feel-good toastie, a guilty pleasure toastie, a binge-eating toastie, a must-have toastie, a must-try toastie. A let’s-see-what-happens-when-toastie. It’s dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate on white bread. Melted. Into a toastie.

  • 2 slices of white bread
  • 25 grams of dark chocolate

  • 25 grams of milk chocolate

Instructions

  1. Preheat the toastie iron
  2. Break the chocolate bars into small pieces
  3. Place chunks of chocolate on one slice of bread
  4. If you can “play” with the order you’ll get a more mixed flavor combination or you could “organize” them more neatly, it’s up to you!
  5. Put the a second slice of bread on top
  6. Gently place the toastie in a toastie maker. 
  7. Try closing the toastie maker as far as possible, but don’t force it. 
  8. Maintain pressure until the toastie maker can close without force. 
  9. Wait a few seconds until the chocolate has melted enough to close the toastie maker.
  10. Grill for 3-5 minutes, or until chocolate has melted.
  11. Make sure not to grill for too long because you might lose all your chocolate.

Notes

  • Bread Tip: White. As decadent as possible 🙂 (try to look for thick-ish bread, without too many holes!)

In the category “is it really necessary?”, this toastie is a guilty pleasure for all y’all sweet teeth out there! The answer is “yes” by the way, it is super necessary to put three bars of chocolate on white bread and put it in a toastie maker. 

The Triple Choc Toastie is a dessert toastie, a snack toastie, a feel-good toastie, a guilty pleasure toastie, a binge-eating toastie, a must-have toastie, a must-try toastie. A let’s-see-what-happens-when-toastie. It’s dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate on white bread. Melted. Into a toastie.

Can You Melt Chocolate in a Toastie Maker? 

The short answer is yes. 

The true experiment is of course to find out what happens when you toast a bar of chocolate between two slices of bread. 

The answer to that experiment is delicious. 

You’ll find so many variations on a triple chocolate dessert on Google, but most of them will be cakes, cookies, or pies. Or at least, involve a lot of baking! 

You’ll also find many recipes on the Internet for making toasties with chocolate spread, like Nutella. But that will never get as thick or creamy as actual chocolate! Not to bash on Nutella, but it will actually melt too quickly, leaving either the bread soft or your toastie without chocolate!

And BTW, who has three different jars of chocolate spread at home? Although, I could see myself being one of those people, actually. 

In the end, though, there’s only one way to make a triple choc grilled sandwich: by putting actual chocolate bars on white bread and throwing it in a toastie iron. 

So that’s what we did. 

Triple Chocolate

Classic triple choc recipes will include your go-to three types of chocolate: milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. Not only do they provide the best combination of flavors, they also look awesome!

Watch the YouTube Video!

I ended up playing a bit with the placement of the chocolate bars, because I wanted to see how much of the chocolate would stay separated from the other colors. And MEEEEN when I took my first bite out of it, it looked so pretty! 

Now, of course, there are many other ways to decorate this toastie, and depending on your chocolate you could even layer them on top of each other (if you have thin bars, that is!)

You could also cut them up really tiny and just make a chocolate fiesta out of your bread with grated chocolate crumbs all over the place. 

Or try playing with different types of chocolate combinations, or perhaps you only have one funky bar in your pantry and you could just use that one. 

Here are some more ideas (that we’ll totally be making in the near future!)

  • Seasalt Caramel Chocolate (Dark Chocolate, Dulce de Leche, Sea Salt Flakes)
  • Snickers (Milk Chocolate, Dulce de Leche, Peanuts or Peanut Butter and Marshmallows)
  • Chocolate Fondue (Dark Chocolate, Fruit)
  • Dark Chocolate with Pistachios and Honey
  • White Chocolate with Strawberries and Marshmallows
  • “Hot Chocolate with Whipped Cream” (Dark Chocolate, Mascarpone, Honey and Cinnamon)
  • M&M’s!
  • After Eight (Dark chocolate with Crushed Peppermints)

Breadly Needed!

There are some things to consider when it comes to the bread for this toasted sandwich. While white bread is probably the most neutral-flavorless bread out there, the most important thing to actually look for is the thickness of the bread. 

For this recipe it is recommended that you look for a dense type of bread. Fresh loaves often have holes in them. Fresh loaves are also thinner than not-fresh bread. The thicker the bread, the better chances of your chocolate staying inside your toastie. With thin bread or bread with holes, you risk losing your chocolate before it is done grillin’. 

While this recipe is not a culinary masterpiece at all (although I’d dare to argue that), there are some key things that you don’t want to go wrong! Bread is one of the main things! 

Strike While the Iron Is Hot

No Toastie Lab without our lovely toastie irons. 

In this case I unambiguously recommend using an actual toastie iron, the one with the triangle shapes. You are going to need a grill that cuts off the ends of the toastie to create a nice, warm bubble for the chocolate to sit in. 

If you’re using a grill, be prepared to lose some of your precious chocolate, once it starts to melt.

And finally, timing is key for this toasted delight!

Patience Is a Virtue

Haa if you’re like me and you’re trying to squeeze in as much chocolate as possible, it won’t fit your toastie iron. 

Instead, what you’re going to need to do in this case, is wait patiently until the iron is HOT! Then, you place the toastie in the iron and you bring the lit down as far as possible. Press gently, but don’t unhinge the machine! 

You are probably going to want to use some oven gloves when it comes to pressing down the toastie iron, because those things can get HOT! Be careful with it!

Slowly but surely, you’ll feel that you’ll be able to press the toastie iron down all the way to where it clicks into its lock. Lock it in and leave the toastie in the gril for another one or two minutes. 

More Caution Needed

Because this toastie doesn’t let the iron close immediately, you’re gonna need to be careful when you press down the iron. Use oven gloves or a kitchen cloth or towel so that you can touch the toastie iron without burning your fingers!

Then while the toastie is in the iron, you’re going to have to be careful again with the chocolate that may drizzle out of the toastie. It will be HOT! 

Then, when you are eating the toastie, make sure that you let the toastie cool down first, as the first bite might open up a flood gate of hot chocolate (which sounds like heaven, but you don’t want it to touch your skin!!!). 

Pretty Toastie

You can totally make this toasted sandwich a beauty of a dish by decorating it with anything really! 

Chocolate is one of those delicious foodies that go with so many things! From cookies to fruit, to herbs and nuts… The sky’s the limit really so get creative!
