5 Minute Chocolate Cinnamon Sugar Toast…the quick fix dessert we’re all in need of from time to time. Made using a good amount of cinnamon, a touch of sugar, and a bit of chocolate, for an extra special cinnamon sugar toast. It’s beyond delicious and the easiest to make. Every toasted sandwich is soft, buttery, and full of melted chocolate inside, and crisp and caramelized edges on the outside…with just the right amount of cinnamon sugar. ‘Tis heavenly.

Do you remember all those times the last few weeks that I said I was really into “old-school” or retro-style recipes? Well, this might just be my favorite yet. And it’s not that this is really “old-school”, but man these sandwiches remind me of being a kid in Cleveland.

A good Saturday morning meant dad was making his cinnamon sugar toast, which yes was just cinnamon, sugar, and toast…but with a good amount of butter. My dad’s cinnamon toast was my absolute favorite. Sure, I might be remembering it better than it was, but does it matter. It was delicious, and my favorite thing to wake up to come Saturday morning. I would imagine a lot of you can probably relate?

Cinnamon toast is such a classic. It’s one of those childhood comfort foods I will never stop loving…which brings me today.

Honestly, this sandwich requires no recipe, but then it does. Because while it’s just four ingredients, it really is one of the best things you can make this week. So I wanted to be sure to bring it to everyone’s attention.

I first started making this years ago…after not the best day, and I’ve continued to make them all these years later.

The FAST Details

My dad made his cinnamon toast simply with soft whole grain bread, butter, and homemade cinnamon sugar…which yes, is just cinnamon and sugar mixed together. The key was the soft bread. He used good ole’ whole wheat bread, the kind your mom would make you peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on. It’s got to be soft.

And then, of course, butter – and lots of it, coupled with plenty of cinnamon sugar. Dad made his best pieces of cinnamon toast with just a smidge too much butter. The butter would stay in a puddle with the cinnamon sugar on top? Oh my gosh, it made for the best bite of toast.

Beyond good.

So, I took my dad’s exact idea for cinnamon toast and I made a chocolate sandwich out of it. My only addition? Chocolate. Right there in the center.

And you know something, I know it’s simple, and I know this concept is not overly creative, but something about this recipe is just so special. And SO DELICIOUS.

The outside edges of the bread caramelize in the skillet, but the middle stays soft and buttery. Then, all the chocolate in the center of each sandwich melts into a puddle of molten chocolate goodness.

It is every bit as delicious as it sounds. A really great treat that can be made in just minutes. And at any time of day…breakfast, lunch, after dinner, and definitely late night. It’s always good…and I will not lie, an extra dusting of cinnamon sugar will make everything even better.

So what do you guys think? A little 5 minute Tuesday treat? Yep, it’s a good idea!

    I would have listed a photo of the results but there was nothing left but tiny crumbs. This is both great comfort food and dessert and something so easy to make as well. No one has said no to this, and everyone has been silent while eating it, other than a few sounds of ecstasy. . And if you really want it a little more of more, scoop of vanilla ice cream on top when it’s just out of the pan, toast crispy and chocolate gooey.

    Sprinkle mozzarella for a chocolate grilled cheese. Sounds weird but chocolate and cheese quesadilla or grilled cheese are amazing! (Mild flavored mozzarella is key)
