These light, delicate chocolate sandwich cookies have a subtle anise flavor that pairs well with the rich ganache. They are great to eat with coffee or tea.
Low heat is key for cooking these just right. It ensures that the cheese in the middle will melt. Also. Be mindful of your cream + milk + egg mixture. This bread-to-wet mixture ratio worked just perfectly for me, but depending on the size of your brioche or challah loaf, you may need a little more cream and eggs or you may need a little less. Just use your best judgement. It's French toast for Pete's sake, it's forgiving. :)
Have a kitchen torch on hand and torch the glaze upon adding it to the rolls. This will liquify and caramelize things nicely and impress guests!
This recipe makes approximately 20 rolls and serves 8-10. Store leftovers at room temperature in an airtight container.
* Make sure whatever nut or seed butter you are using is fresh and runny (not dried out and hard). A fresh, new refrigerated jar works best. Just make sure you stir the new jar first to distribute the oil on top evenly. My favorite choice is raw, creamy almond butter from Trader Joe's.
