Candy Bar French Toast
12 slices day old bread 3 Hersheys milk chocolate candy bars - no nuts 3 eggs 1 cup milk 2 Tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt confectioner's sugar (for dusting at the end) Break each candy bar in half - the short way. Grate just a little chocolate (no more than a half teaspoon off of each piece and save in a small bowl for later.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Pour half of this mixture into an large(13x9) ungreased baking dish.
Layer six slices of bread horizontally over the egg mixture. Place one piece of candy bar in the center of each piece of bread. Top each slice with remaining pieces of bread like sandwiches. Pour the remaining egg mixture over the sandwiches. Let this stand for at least 5 minutes so the bread can absorb the egg mixture.
On a griddle or in a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Fry sandwiches until golden brown on both sides. Add an addition 2 teaspoons of butter mid-way, if cooking in batches.
To serve, cut each sandwich diagonally. Dust with confectioner's sugar and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
