Step 1

In a glass measuring cup, or some other kind of microwave safe bowl, pour in 1 cup of milk and microwave for 2-3 minutes. When it’s finished, stir in 3 tablespoons of hot chocolate mix. Leave this mixture to sit and cool for about five minutes.

Step 2

While waiting for your hot chocolate to cool down, cut 6 thick slices of challah bread and cover each slice with 1-2 tablespoons of Nutella. Make three sandwiches out of your 6 slices and set them aside.

Step 5

Dip both sides of each piece of French toast in the chocolate egg mixture. Allow them to sit for a few seconds to really soak everything up. While letting them sit, coat a skillet with 4 tablespoons of butter and place over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, cook your French toast for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown.
