Panini with Chocolate, Apple, and Brie****

foodblog 025 

4 slices sourdough or whole-wheat bread
1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 
4 ounces Brie cheese, thinly sliced

1/2 medium apple, thinly sliced
4-ounces semisweet chocolate chips 
1 tbsp thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

Preheat the panini grill.

Brush both sides of the bread with olive oil. Grill the bread slices until they begin to turn golden, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the panini grill and place 2 ounces of cheese on 1 slice of bread (the bottom half), top the cheese with 3-4 apple slices, a scattering of chocolate chips, and a sprinkle of basil. Top with another slice of bread. Continue with the remaining sandwiches. Return the sandwiches to the panini grill until the chocolate begins to melt, about another 2 minutes.
