Chocolate French Toast Recipe

Chocolate French Toast

Stephanie Gallagher
Chocolate for breakfast? Oh yeah! Ordinary French toast gets kicked up a notch with this sweet, but not overly-sweet chocolate French toast recipe. For the best results, use slightly-stale challah or Italian bread for this recipe. It soaks up the custard better than a soft, fresh bread. Serve this French toast with sliced strawberries or raspberries and powdered sugar.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 8 servings


  • 8 slices day-old (slightly stale) challah or Italian bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. butter


  1. Place bread in a 9 x 13 baking dish, making sure pieces do not overlap.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cocoa powder, sugar and vanilla. Pour over bread slices. Turn bread to make sure it is well-coated.

  3. Heat a griddle (compare prices) or a large nonstick skillet to medium-high heat. Add butter.

  4. Place the coated bread slices on griddle. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side until lightly browned and cooked through. Serve with sliced strawberries, syrup and powdered sugar, if desired.
