Raspberry & Chocolate Sandwiches – Pane, lamponi e crema di cioccolato
Music: any upbeat song by Tori Amos (it is really hard, but if I had to, I’d probably choose Talula, The Waitress or – I know this is too obvious, but I love it – Raspberry Swirl). Berries, especially if red, juicy and tangy, always work perfectly with Tori Amos. You need to puree the raspberries with your own hands, crashing them between your fingers, till that wonderful bright pink colour is everywhere. Raspberries’ rough texture melts into the smooth chocolate spread, like a kiss on the mouth. Is there anything better?
4 bread slices, your favourite
Amedei chocolate-hazelnut spread
Puree the raspberries and sugar together (you can use a mixer, if you don’t want pink nails…) Spread the bread with softened butter, then spread the unbuttered sides of 2 slices of bread with the chocolate-hazelnut spread and the other sides with the raspberry puree, making sure the buttered sides are on the outside. Heat a non-stick frying pan over high heat, cook and the sandwiches for one minute each side or until golden. Serve immediately.
