A couple of years ago, my love made me a midnight snack. This is when Midnight toast was born. It’s a richly topped toast that satisfies ALL midnight cravings.
This toast is a simple concoction of toasted bread, peanut butter, jam or jelly, whipped cream, and honey. Yes, it is slightly indulgent. And yes, it is utterly satisfying. A rich toast made from brioche or challah will take this midnight snack to a whole other level. But, any toast will do.
If you’re making this at midnight, cool whip or canned whipped cream will do just fine. Otherwise homemade whipped cream is the best choice.
To make Midnight Toast:
1) Toast your bread.
2) While toast is still warm, slather the toasted bread with whipped cream.
3) Spread a generous amount of peanut butter over whipped cream layer.
4) Spread your favorite jam atop peanut butter layer.
5) Drizzle with honey.
6) Enjoy with a glass of milk (almond milk preferred in this household).
7) Go back to bed.
This toast sounds sweet, and it is. However, the flavors in this little recipe pair so lovely together, especially at midnight. Choosing the right bread here is crucial, since there will be a lot of toppings placed atop it. The bread needs to be toasted to stand up to the toppings as well. Any thickly sliced bread would do including challah, sourdough, and brioche.
This toast does not have to be made at midnight. You can enjoy it at any darn time you’d like! I can only imagine these toppings would be great atop French toast as well, if you really want to go for it on a weekend morning!
