Grilled Chocolate Marmalade Sandwiches

The weekend is starting, and I know what I'll be making: Grilled Chocolate Sandwiches. Here's a variation on a standard grilled chocolate sandwich. This recipe from Weber's Time To Grill by Jamie Purviance adds marmalade. Chocolate and Orange Heaven! Italics are my notes.

Grilled Chocolate Marmalade Sandwiches

8 slices country-style white bread, 1/2 inch thick
2 tablespoons PLUS 2 teaspoons orange marmalade (I used Robertson's Scotch Bitter Orange)*
2 (4-ounce) bars good-quality bittersweet chocolate (I used Green & Black 70% Dark Chocolate)
6 tablespoons sweet butter, melted
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar

Lay 4 slices of bread on a work surface and spread 2 teaspoons marmalade on each. Place one-fourth of the chocolate on each of the four slices, breaking the chocolate to fit the shape of the bread. Top each one with another slice of bread and brush melted butter onto both sides of each sandwich.

Grill over direct, medium-low heat until the bread is golden brown and crispy and the chocolate is melted, 4-5 minutes, turning once. Let the sandwiches rest for a minute, slice in half with a serrated knife, and lightly dust with confectioners’ sugar.

Yield: 4-8 servings
