4th of July Fun-Grilling Healthy Desserts

Grilled Dark Chocolate Sandwich (can be served ala-mode) Both simpler and more decadent than a chocolate croissant, a grilled chocolate sandwich is a surprisingly delicious marriage of whole grain bread and organic dark chocolate for a desert that is out of this world in taste.

Ingredients: Serves: 8 1/4 cup fat-free evaporated milk 1-1/2 tablespoons butter, softened 3 ounces organic bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped 1 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg 8 slices thin whole-wheat (or substitute white sandwich bread) 3 tablespoons bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips 2 tablespoons chopped toasted hazelnuts (optional)

Preparation: 15 minutes

1. Heat evaporated milk just until boiling. Add chocolate, let stand for 1 minute, then whisk until smooth. Let cool slightly.

2. Butter both sides of each slice of bread. Divide the chocolate mixture on the unbuttered side of 4 slices, leaving a little border. Press chocolate chips and nuts, if using, into the chocolate. Cover with the remaining slices of bread, buttered-side up, and press lightly.

3. Cook sandwiches in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. Turn over, press with a spatula, and cook until nicely browned and the chocolate is barely melted, 30 seconds-1 minute. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve warm.
