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.

Preparation: 5 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.

Recipe Notes

If you don’t have salted butter, use unsalted and sprinkle a pinch of salt on top of the sandwiches.
