Skill Level: Beginner

Recipe Rating


  • 5 eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 loaf day-old French bread
  • 1 cup HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Chips or HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips
  • Maple syrup


  • 1. Spray 13x9x2-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 2. Whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla in medium bowl. Set aside.
  • 3. Cut French bread into 6 (1-1/2-in. thick) slices.* Using small, sharp knife, cut 2to 3-inch long slits in one crust side of each bread slice, cutting 3/4 of the way through bread to create a pocket. Spoon 2 heaping tablespoons chips into pocket of each bread slice; press to close.
  • 4. Dip each filled bread slice in egg mixture, coating each side completely. Place coated slices in prepared pan. Cover pan with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
  • 4. Heat oven to 400°F. Bake, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer toast to plates. Serve with maple syrup, if desired. 6 or more servings.
  • *Number of slices will vary according to the length of the bread loaf. Increase chips by an additional 2 tablespoons for each additional bread slice.

Ratings & Reviews

    These were great, though I wish I'd taken the time to really stuff as much filling as possible into each piece of bread, rather than rushing through because we were hungry.
    We love to make this when we have everyone together in the house. All our family loves this. We are going to make it again again again....
