Description

Although sandwiches are typically on the savory side of the spectrum, sweet ones can be a delicious break from the norm. In this case, cocoa bread that's dotted candied orange peel, chocolate chips and pinenuts is prepared in a bread machine. Meanwhile, a mascarpone filling made with eggs, sugar and Vin Santo is whipped together and chilled so the flavors can meld. After a few hours, the sliced bread gets a generous slather of cream and is topped with another slice to form a decadent hand-held treat.
