Ingredients

French Toasts:

3 tablespoons salted butter

1/2 cup whole milk 

2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar 

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 

3 large eggs, beaten 

24 mini muffins (chocolate chip, blueberry and corn), halved from top to bottom 

1/4 cup confectioners' sugar, for dusting 

Whipped Cream:

1 cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar 

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

Mexican Chocolate Sauce:

1/2 cup jarred chocolate fudge sauce

2 tablespoons heavy cream 

1 teaspoon chili powder 

Serving:

1 cup maple syrup, warmed

1 cup dulce de leche, warmed 

Directions

  1. For the French toasts: Place a cast-iron griddle over medium heat. Add the butter and allow to melt until the bubbles subside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and eggs. Gently dip the muffins into the egg mixture; allow any excess egg to drip off. Cook until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a serving platter and shake the confectioners' sugar over the top.
  3. For the whipped cream: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream, confectioners' sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Use an electric mixer to whip until soft peaks form.
  4. For the Mexican chocolate sauce: In a mixing bowl, combine the chocolate fudge sauce and cream. Microwave until warm, about 30 seconds. Whisk in the chili powder.
  5. For serving: Serve the French toasts with the whipped cream, Mexican chocolate sauce, maple syrup and dulce de leche.
