  1. In a saucepan, heat the first three ingredients over low heat, stirring frequently, until the chocolate melts. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Thoroughly soak the bread in the mixture, about 3 minutes per side.

  3. In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, melt half the butter until it foams. Fry half the bread until golden, 4 to 5 minutes a side. Keep warm. Repeat with the remaining butter and bread.

  4. Top each piece of French toast with banana slices and drizzle with warm (not hot) chocolate sauce.
