chocolate grilled cheese dessert

This recipe came about as a grilled cheese sandwich challenge. Sliced bread and cheese were the only conditions. As and example, one on the other leaders said that if he were competing, he would add peanut butter and marshmallows. I thought to myself that I could make this work, and the chocolate grilled cheese dessert was born. Sliced chocolate bread, with melted cream cheese, marshmallow, and peanut butter, grilled to perfection, drizzled chocolate syrup. Delicious! It was a hit, everyone enjoyed it.
