Miss Bee and I made these at Sister’s house a few summers ago and we still enjoy making them.  So easy and is reminiscent of the traditional s’more, but with a twist — of course!

All you need is a fresh baguette loaf, soft butter, a family size package of chocolate bars, your choice, course vanilla sea salt and fresh raspberries.

Slice the bread into 2 inch slices and slather on soft butter on both sides.  Place slices on a parchment lined baking pan.  Turn up oven to 450 degrees or light your gas grilled if you want grill marks.  Place bread in the oven for about 3-5 minutes until lightly brown and crispy.  Watch carefully, because the bread can burn quickly.

Remove from the oven and place a slice of chocolate on top of the slice of bread.  Sprinkle with a pinch Jacobsen vanilla sea salt and return to oven to help warm the chocolate — maybe 1-2 minutes.  Remove from the oven, place on serving platter and press a raspberry into the warm, melty chocolate.

Have fun trying different chocolate varieties — dark, milk or bittersweet, caramel or raspberry, orange infused chocolate.  Really, any chocolate of your pleasure works.  It’s the perfect touch of sweet after dinner to enjoy with bubbly or a dessert wine.  Give it a try!
