Updated February 23, 2016

You'll love how quickly this elegant and rich dessert sandwich can be made. My faithful recipe tester Annette says it's kind of like a chocolate-hazelnut cheesecake, only much simpler to make. Usually, it's important to press grilled cheese sandwiches with a spatula to flatten them, but with this one, it's important not to press it, or the filling can squirt out.

@Loobylooo and @8maddy81 -- thanks for the questions! Feta is at least 70% sheep's milk, actually, and is usually much saltier and less creamy than goat cheese. If you can get fresh, locally made goat cheese where you are, that's always fantastic -- or a good French chèvre will also do the trick. All the best, Kara Rota Cookstr Editor

What kind of goats cheese would you recommend?

Is feta goat chease?
