For this to work as a savory bite, the chocolate must be very dark, bittersweet, and world-class. Look for names that are hard to pronounce. Labels with percentage symbols are always a good sign (the higher the percent, the better).

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Arrange baguette slices in a single layer on the baking sheet. Place under broiler until golden, 2 minutes. Turn each slice over and broil 2 minutes. Turn off broiler.
  3. Turn each slice over again; drizzle with olive oil. Push chocolate piece into the center of each slice and return baking sheet to oven for 2 more minutes. Remove from oven and lightly sprinkle each chocolate piece with sea salt.

I LOVED this. I used Callebaut 70% and a super-fruity olive oil. I think using a very flavorful, fruity olive oil is key to making this work, along with using a very dark chocolate, as the submitter specifies. The only thing I did differently was to only toast each side of the bread for about 1 minute, until barely golden; I wanted more of a chew than a crisp crunch.

Amazing...I absolutely loved this!! You do have to use high quality products...olive oil and dark chocolate from Whole Foods worked well. It definitely is unique and will have everyone talking about it. And the simplicity of this recipe makes it even better.
