A French Treat

In 7th grade I took French (and 9th grade and 10th grade).  I loved that class.  The teacher remains one of my all time favorites and she did her best to include cuisine into our curriculum whenever possible.  One day when we showed up for class she had a baguette and a bar of chocolate.  She told us it was a common snack for kids when they got home from school.  A chocolate sandwich. 

Now, it's rare that we have a yummy piece of bread AND a plain chocolate bar laying around our house at the same time, but when we do, you can be sure I will make this:

My guess is that true French children have fresh baguettes from the local market and some sort of savory Belgium chocolate.  But, croissants leftover from one of my mom's parties and a Hershey's bar does the trick.  It might seem an odd snack but it's super delish!
