I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Grilled Chocolate and Raspberry Sandwiches

There aren't a whole lot of major rules here....
Sliced Bread: Challah, Italian, vienna even pound cake works nicely.
Raspberry Jam(seedless is better)
Chocolate: Hershey bar, semi sweet chips, Ghiradelli(whatever you like)
Butter and a little powdered sugar
Fry Pan, Griddle or Panini Press

Spread jam on bread, place chocolate on jam, top with second slice of bread.
Get pan set to medium - medium high
Butter outside of bread and fry.
Put on plate, cut in half, dust with powdered sugar
Pure Heaven!

Have a little fun try different jams or fresh fruits. Grilled chocolate and peanut butter is wonderful. We all deserve to indulge from time to time. Although I have to admit that once you try a grilled chocolate sandwich.......from time to time could easily turn into day to day!
