This easy Chocolate Strawberry Brioche French Toast is crusted with coconut, coconut whipped cream, and chocolate covered strawberries for a crunchy, creamy breakfast that is perfect for Valentine’s Day!
It’s almost D Day.
Or should I say V DAY?!
See what I did there. Tricky tricky.
So, what are your opinions on the day? Do you celebrate it with wine + chocolate truffles + your significant other? Or do you celebrate it with wine + yourself + …. A heart shaped voodoo doll because it’s just some made up Hallmark holiday?
Personally, I am like Belgium. Or is it Sweden? Whatever, I’m just netural. I’ve got one foot in the I-wanna-celebrate-because-then-the-hubs-has-to-take-me-for-fancy-dinner-and–buy-me-flowers corner, and the other foot in the what-a-dumb-holiday corner.
How-ev-er, no matter if you’re on team ooey-gooey lovey-dovey goodness or team why-does-February-14-even-exist, I KNOW that you like French toast.
And even if you’re one of those rare non-french-toast-eating people, you’ll like this one.
I mean, the outside is coated with crispety, crunchety coconut flakes.
Which is then topped with CHOCOLATE Coconut whipped cream and chocolate strawberries. <00 Can you EVER go wrong with dunking fresh, sweet strawberries in rich, smooth chocolate?
The correct answer to that is no. No you cannot.
I debated reverting to my usual healthy-food-loving ways and using whole wheat bread for this. But, it’s Valentine’s Day which means, like ALL holidays that involve some sort of sugary delicious YUMS, calories don’t count.
Anyways. I used the king of all breads: soft, buttery Brioche. If you’re like me, and consider yourself a French toast connoisseur (is that a thing?) you’ll agree that the bread is KEYKEYKEY x 100.
And you don’t mess with keykeykey x 100. That shenangians is IMPORTANT.
Besides the whole “hails from the land of OHMYGOSHYUM land” aspect of this breakfast, you wanna know another really good reason to eat it?
Valentine’s Day justsohappens to be on Saturday.
And you know what they say?
Saturdays are for breakfast in bed.
But, I may have just made that up.
