Eggless Chocolate Stuffed French Toast

Last day of the year and I wanted to make something nice for breakfast. It is not often that my husband is home for me to make a nice hot breakfast for him. This week, thanks to the snow, has been an anomaly. The problem with nice hot breakfasts is that it usually entails using a good deal of eggs. I cook a lot with eggs and I think that we were both getting a bit tired of it. I did however, want to make Chocolate Stuffed French Toast. No problem!
