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 the Spanakopita.
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.
- 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.
