Toasty Dessert

Here's a very quick and very easy dessert recipe. If you like Fried Ice Cream, you'll definitely love this!

3 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon

**NOTE: The ratio is 3 Tbsp to 1 tsp. If you need more of the mixture, just multiply the amounts keeping this ratio**

Butter
Ciabatta (or Tuscan) bread, sliced into 1-inch thick slices

Over Med-High heat, melt enough butter to cover the bottom of the pan. Don't be skimpy! You want the bread to be able to soak up the butter.

Place the bread in the hot butter and let it begin to brown. Flip the bread over and sprinkle a generous amount of the cin/sugar mixture over the top. Flip again and allow the sugar to carmelize; sprinkle more sugar on the other side of the toast. Flip one more time and allow the newly-sprinkled side to carmelize.

Plate with a healthy (if there is such a thing) dollop of vanilla ice cream. Drizzle some honey and chocolate syrup and serve with a piece of the cinnamon toast.
