How To Make Chocolate Paninis

Oozing with gooey melted sweetness, this addicting paninis recipe is made with just 3 ingredients for an easy-baked snack, served in just 20 minutes.

Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



  • 8sliceschallah bread,(from 1 loaf), or brioche, white, or Italian bread, ½-inch thick slices
  • 4tbspsalted butter,softened
  • 4ozsemisweet chocolate chips,(⅔ cup), or finely chopped chocolate, best quality such as Ghirardelli or Guittard


  1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

  2. Spread one side of each bread slice with about 1½ teaspoons butter and place 4 slices, buttered side down, on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Spread about a ¼ of the chocolate chips evenly on each of the 4 slices, leaving a ¼-inch border around the edges. Cover with the remaining bread slices, buttered side up.

  4. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes until the bottoms of the paninis are crisp and golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven. Using a metal spatula, gently press down on sandwiches to spread the soft chips into melted chocolate.

  5. Carefully turn the sandwiches over and continue baking for about 5 minutes longer until the bottoms are crisp and golden.

  6. Let cool slightly, cut paninis in half, and serve.
