After making baklava a while back, I had some leftover frozen phyllo dough. Because it was a difficult recipe, I decided that it was a one time thing. I needed something else to do with the dough. I tried filling it with honey, but it burned. (I liked the taste, but burnt honey is not a good idea for baking). Chocolate is generally safer. It was an instant success with my family!
To make this, I used:
- 1 stick (100 g) unsalted butter
- 200 g bittersweet chocolate bar*
- 8 sheets of a 9 x 14 inch phyllo dough roll
- Melt the chocolate over boiling water
- Cut the butter into small cubes; add it to the chocolate
- Mix well and remove from heat
- Use a tablespoon to spread the sauce in a line about half an inch wide on top of two sheets of dough
- Gently fold the dough around the sauce. Be careful, as phyllo very easily breaks or tears with the slightest touch.
- Repeat 4-5 on the same sheet next to the rolled part. Repeat this step until the entirety of the two sheets are covered.
- Repeat 4-6 to create three more pieces. Cut the four pieces a necessary to fit them on the baking pan.
- Put all the pieces on a pan with parchment paper. Bake for 6-7 minutes 400 F/ 200 C.
- Give it a short time to cool and enjoy!
