Garnish: fresh berries
Stir together butter, maple syrup, vanilla and orange zest. Divide butter evenly between, and on both sides of bread (as you would if making a grilled cheese sandwich). Pre-heat a non-stick pan or flat griddle to medium high. Place two slices of bread on pre-heated griddle and divide chocolate evenly between bread. Top with remaining piece of bread (to make a sandwich). Grill for about 3 minutes, while gently pressing each sandwich down with spatula. Flip sandwich over and grill for an additional 3 minutes (approx.) until bread is grilled and chocolate is soft. Cut each sandwich in half and garnish with fresh berries and whipped cream. Makes two sandwiches.
