  • 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.
