This “Maple Monbranc” Honey Toast is just what it looks like: a solid half loaf of white bread topped with ice cream, maple syrup, prolific extrusions of sweetened chestnut paste, whipped cream, half a candied chestnut and two sprigs of parsley. This is just one variety – you can order your slab of goodness topped with berries, chocolate, caramel, you name it.
In Japan, where an adult-sized dessert can usually be eaten in about two and a half bites, Honey Toast stands out for its sheer size. Standing about 6″ tall, this monster is challenging to tackle even for veteran knife and fork users.
