Chocolate Peanut Butter French Toast Bake

Father’s Day is coming soon.  Our Father’s Day this year is going to be crazy.  Aaron’s 1st birthday party is the day before Father’s Day.  This year our anniversary falls on Father’s Day and there is a big party for Brian’s grandpa’s 85th birthday on Father’s Day.  I want to make Brian a nice breakfast for Father’s Day since we won’t be home much of the day.
I obviously have a thing for French Toast Bakes, this is the 4th one that I have made. This is one of my favorites.  This would be a great breakfast to make for your husband or father on Father’s Day!  My husband loves chocolate and peanut butter and I made this French Toast Bake with him in mind.  We both loved it.  
This is made using refrigerated cinnamon buns.  This is decadent, but still makes a great breakfast.  This reminded me of a coffee cake, for some reason, so this can be eaten for dessert as well. The chocolate and peanut butter formed a layer on top of the cinnamon buns, which was very delicious.  This breakfast was great, nothing can get better than cinnamon roll french toast with chocolate and peanut butter. This is a must try, I know you’ll love it!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter French Toast Bake

3 eggs
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 can refrigerated cinnamon buns with icing
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon cocoa powder

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2.    Separate the refrigerated cinnamon rolls into 8 rolls, setting the icing aside.  Cut each roll into 8 equal pie-shaped wedges.  Place the cinnamon roll pieces into a greased 8×8 baking dish.  

3.  In a medium bowl beat the eggs.  Then beat in the peanut butter, heavy whipping cream, cinnamon, and vanilla until they are well blended. Stir in the semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Then gently pour the mixture over the cinnamon bun pieces. 

4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool for 15 minutes.

5.  Microwave the icing on medium (50%) for 10-15 seconds or until it is thin enough to drizzle. Stir in the cocoa powder and then drizzle the icing over the top of the French Toast Bake.
