Prep these individual French toast cups the night before so all you have to do when you wake up is pop them in the oven! Chocolate sweetens the deal.

Expert Tips

Although you can make French toast with fresh baked bread, it’s better if the bread is 1 to 2 days old.

Enjoy the French toast cups the day they are baked, preferably while still warm.
