If you ever have a few spare sheets of phyllo dough, make Chocolate Filled Phyllo Triangles! They’re flaky little pastries stuffed with chocolate or ganache. I made a bunch of them yesterday using some phyllo leftover from Spanakopita.
This is one of those “no-recipe recipes” where you can go freestyle and do whatever you want. For this batch, I cut a sheet of phyllo into three long strips, put a bit of chocolate at the bottom of the strip, then folded it upward as one would fold a flag.
I made Chocolate Filled Phyllo Triangles, but you could fill these with a mixture of cinnamon and nuts (maybe dot with some honey), apple pie filling or maybe even something savory.
One Sheet of Phyllo Equals 3 Chocolate Filled Phyllo Triangles
I didn’t give an exact yield because it really just depends on how many sheets of phyllo you have, but each sheet will give you 3 triangles.
Chocolate Stuffed Phyllo Trianges
- A few sheets of phyllo doesn’t matter how many
- Melted butter salted
- Some chopped semisweet or dark chocolate or cooled ganache 1 part chocolate, 1 part cream
- Cinnamon sugar
- Lay your phyllo dough in front of you with short sides on the bottom. Brush it with melted butter or spray with butter flavored cooking spray if that’s what you prefer.
- Using a pizza cutter, cut it into 3 long strips.
- Put approximately 1 heaping teaspoon of finely chopped dark chocolate at the bottom of one strip, slightly to the left, then fold upward like a flag and make a neat triangle.
- Brush with a little more butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
- Arrange triangles on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until golden.
