Punchbowl, it is no coincidence that November 3 is also the birthday of John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich. This 18th-century English noble wanted to eat his meal with one hand during a 24-hour gambling event, so he instructed his servants to serve him his lunch meat between two slices of bread. In celebration of this occasion, November 3 is now celebrated as National Sandwich Day!
Chocolate is no stranger to the Sandwich. Here are links to some of my favorites:
Nutella & Mashmallow Fluff Sandwich
Grilled Chocolate Cheesecake Sandwich
Grilled Chocolate Sandwich
Panini with Strawberries and Chocolate
Peppermint Patty Ice Cream Sandwiches
Easy Ice Cream Sandwiches
Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches
S'mores (in several variations)
We're having very warm weather today, so here's a recipe straight from Starbucks for Peppermint Mocha Ice Cream Sandwiches. I've tried these. Easy and delicious, and I like the look of the white chocolate drizzle on top. Want to get even fancier? Roll the finished sandwiches in min-chocolate chips. Yum!
