Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor, chop chocolate fine; add coconut, almonds and ¼ cup of butter.
  2. Blend mixture until smooth.
  3. Melt remaining butter.
  4. Working with 1 strip of filo at a time, arrange the strip on a work surface with short side facing you (cover the remaining filo with a damp towel to keep from drying out).
  5. Brush strip lightly with some of the melted butter.
  6. Fold down top right hand corner of filo to form a triangle; put 1 tablespoon of filling in center and continue folding in same way, to enclose filling completely (the folding process is like you are folding the flag to make a triangular shape).
  7. Brush with some of remaining butter and repeat 11 more times, making 12 filo triangles.
  8. (can be prepared up to 2 weeks in advance and kept wrapped and frozen) Preheat oven to 400F and bake triangles for 8-12 minutes (the longer time if you’re baking them frozen), or until golden.
  9. Serve hot with ice cream.
