A pinch of salt
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract

Mix the eggs into a bowl with milk, salt and vanilla extract. Dip bread slices in egg preparation.

Heat a skillet over medium heat, add a little butter and melt until golden, add the bread slices two at a time and cook for 1 minute on each side. Let cool.

Spread two slices of bread on a work surface. Make a well with crushed chocolate on both slices of bread and top with ice cream. Close with remaining slices, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for 3 to 4 hours.

In a large skillet, sauté the pears in butter and sugar for 3 minutes or until golden brown on medium heat. Put aside.

Cut diagonally and top with caramelized pears.
