Chocolate and Brioche Sandwiches with Sesame Crème Anglaise

Chocolate and Brioche Sandwiches with Sesame Crème Anglaise

You need:

  • 12 slices of brioche, cut to the same size
  • 8 oz. bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 2 tbsp plus 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • tahini, to taste

How to make it:

  1. In a sauce pan, bring cream, sugar, and vanilla to just below the boiling point.
  2. Mix a few tablespoons of cream mixture into egg yolk and whisk to temper the eggs. Be careful not to cook the eggs. Gently add a little more until eggs are tempered.
  3. Return mixture to the sauce pan and bring back to just below the boiling point. Cook until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Cool to room temperature before chilling in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  4. In a double boiler, heat chocolate until thoroughly melted.
    Spread mixture over each slice of brioche and then stack slices into sandwiches and set aside until almost ready to serve.
  5. Toast in a toaster oven until chocolate begin to melt and the brioche is nicely browned and crispy. Do not toast too long: brioche burns easily.
  6. Remove creme and stir in a tablespoon of tahini, adding more to taste.
    Spoon some sauce onto a plate and top with brioche sandwich. Enjoy!
