Brits' nouveau cuisine: the deep-fried chocolate sandwich
Chocoholics seeking to indulge their passion this Easter will appreciate a British hotel chain's diet-busting deep-fried chocolate sandwich.
Ramada Jarvis introduced the delicacy last month and now says the calorie-heavy dish has become the fastest-selling dessert on its menu.
"We were surprised it has become so popular, although it is very tasty," the chain's director of food and beverages, Debbie Walter, said.
The sandwich is particularly popular in Scotland, the traditional birthplace of the deep-fried Mars bar.
Mindful that Britain, like other Western countries, faces an increasing problem of obesity, the hotel chain also offers less fattening desserts.

(found while searching web for the recipe
Actually, Zingerman's Guide to Good Eating: How to Choose the Best Bread, Cheeses, Olive Oil, Pasta, Chocolate, and Much More (a book I highly recommend, by the way) has a recipe for a grilled chocolate sandwich that is very much like a grilled cheese sandwich. Strangely, I have not tried that recipe out yet. Their recipe for chocolate pudding, however, is to die for. (Although the recipe says it contains 8 servings, take my advice and make it 12 or 16 servings. I couldn't finish a 1/8 serving, and I'm a card-carrying chocaholic.)
