Grilled cheese sandwiches, as good as they are, don't satisfy every need. When a craving for something sweet strikes, the cheese-filled sandwich just won't cut it. But there is something that's just perfect for the grilled cheese lover, and it's made with good-for-you chocolate. It's a grilled chocolate sandwich.

This dessert sandwich uses the genius components of the grilled cheese (a.k.a. buttery toast), but it adds chocolate as a filling in place of cheese and melts it to gooey perfection. And it doesn't stop there, some recipes include fresh fruit, peanut butter and even marshmallows.

If all this mention of grilled cheese has you craving one now, check out the recent homage we made to this classic comfort food.
