    1. 1
      In a food processor, chop chocolate fine; add coconut, almonds and ¼ cup of butter.
    2. 2
      Blend mixture until smooth.
    3. 3
      Melt remaining butter.
    4. 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. 5
      Brush strip lightly with some of the melted butter.
    6. 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. 7
      Brush with some of remaining butter and repeat 11 more times, making 12 filo triangles.
    8. 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. 9
      Serve hot with ice cream.

      Its a keeper thats for sure!!! Easy to make and fast!!! I cut each phyllo pastry at three stripes so I had more and smaller triangles! When I tasted the first without any ice cream I decided to made syrup and put it to the half of the triangles. So I ended up with the half amount as a baclava treat and the rest I 'm planning on offering them,this evening to some friends, with vanilla ice cream! Thanks Ev for one more great recipe!!!

      Wonderful! The only problem I had was a misunderstanding in the directions. When it states to cut the sheets "crosswise", I thought that meant to cut from the long side over to the long side... I think what it really meant was to cut the sheets "lengthwise". Either way, it worked eventually. I ended up cutting the sheets in half and then in half again. The filling is divine. It would not be the same if you were to sub in/out anything. They are all dependant on each other and produce a wonderful tasting treat. I will definitely make these again! Thanks!
