Chocolate, Brie and Basil Panini

I got creative with paninis again. Really just love a grilled sandwich, although this is more like a dessert…

You’ll need:
Bread (I used sourdough)
Brie cheese
Chocolate (milk or dark)
Fresh Basil
Butter

Butter your bread!

Slice the Brie. I left the rind on, personal preference.

Heat up the panini maker! You can also use a George Foreman grill or make it in the skillet like a grilled cheese.

Place bread butter side down. Stack on the Brie!

Tear up some fresh basil and add it on.

I’ve got a golden ticket!

I used milk chocolate simply because I don’t care for the bitterness of dark chocolate. However, after trying this with the creaminess of the Brie, dark chocolate would have been a nice compliment.

I also sprinkled a little kosher salt and fresh pepper on, nice little salty and spice.

Time to toast!

Let that sit for a few minutes.

Golden perfection.
