      1/2  cup           milk
     
        6  slices        French bread (sliced on bias 1/2-inch thick)
     
        1  tablespoon    vegetable oil
     
                         Unsweetened whipped cream, -- for garnish

 Make strawberry syrup: In a small saucepan combine syrup, sugar, spices and
 strawberries. Bring
 to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Lower heat to simmering and
 cook until thick and syrupy
 consistency is reached. Keep warm. 
 
 Make chocolate french toast: In a large shallow bowl whisk eggs. In a small
 bowl combine vanilla
 sugar and cocoa until well-blended and whisk into eggs. Whisk in milk. In a
 saute pan, preferably
 nonstick, heat half of oil over medium heat. Dip bread slices in egg
 mixture until thoroughly
 moistened. Carefully transfer half of bread slices to pan and cook until
 golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes
 per side, turning once. Transfer to warmed plate. Repeat with remaining
 bread slices. To serve,
 drizzle with strawberry syrup, top with a dollop of whipped cream, and
 sprinkle with confectioners'
 sugar.
