Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Mascarpone cheese
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh cherries pitted & halved
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate chopped
  • 4 slices brioche bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

  • Combine mascarpone, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl. Spread mascarpone mixture evenly between two slices of brioche.
  • Top each with a single layer of halved cherries, then sprinkle chocolate between. Spread half of the butter on one side of the other two slices of bread, then place on top of the cherries with the buttered side up, pressing down firmly.
  • Heat remaining butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high until melted. Add sandwiches, buttered side up, and cook 2-3 minutes on each side until chocolate is melted and bread is browned. Serve immediately.
