Turtle Toast Royale

"French Toast with a rich blend of caramel and chocolate flavor"

1 pound loaf french bread
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons chopped pecans
1/3 cup mini-chocolate chips
Batter for Bread:
4 eggs
2 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1 pound brown sugar
1 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon brandy

Filling: Blend cream cheese, vanilla, pecans, and sugar. Slice end off loaf. Make the next slice about 1/2 inch thick, without slicing through to the bottom and then completely slice off the next 1/2 inch thick piece. Take about one tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture and spread it into the pocket formed between the partial cut bread slice. Sprinkle a few choc. chips into the pocket mixture.
Mix eggs, milk, and sugar. Dip the stuffed bread into this mixture and turn it over so it becomes evenly coated. Place the toast on an oiled griddle and fry on each side until golden brown.
Sauce: Mix together all 4 ingredients and slowly heat over very low heat until it boils. Cook for 1-2 min. Remove from heat and add brandy. Makes 2 cups.
Extra sauce keeps well in a jar in the refrigerator and microwave for future use.
