Chocolate Brioche



4 1-inch slices of brioche or challah, preferably a day or two old
4 bars (4 squares of 2 ounces each) of dark chocolate (preferably more than 60 percent cacao)
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
Sea salt

Yield: 4 servings


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place the brioche slices on a baking sheet and top each with a chocolate bar. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil, and season with salt to taste. Bake in the preheated oven 4 to 5 minutes, until the chocolate is molten. Drizzle with the remaining teaspoon of oil and serve immediately.
