Grilled Chocolate and Apricot Sandwiches


Finely chopping the chocolate ensures that it melts quickly and evenly. Dried apricots lend a little sweetness to every bite.


  • 4 ounces dark chocolate (preferably at least 70 percent cacao), finely chopped

  • 16 dried apricots, halved horizontally

  • 4 pieces baguette (each about 5 inches long), split lengthwise

  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Divide chocolate and apricots among bottom halves of baguette, and sprinkle with salt. Sandwich with top halves.

  2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Wrap the underside of a heavy skillet with foil. Place 2 sandwiches, top sides down, in grill pan. Top with skillet, and cook for 2 minutes. Flip, top with skillet, and cook until the chocolate has melted, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining sandwiches. Serve immediately.
