Top Review by mamazee

I am "cooking out of my pantry" this week, while we get ready for a trip with the family... i had a package of phyllo dough in the freezer and thought i'd make a dessert... i was all out of coconut? but i chopped up some almonds - i only had one baking square of unsweetened chocolate so i subbed 3 T cocoa powder and 1 T melted butter for each of the other squares - and mixed in a good dollop of sugar :) - they turned out really really good... a little adult i thought since the chocolate wasn't as sweet as it could have been, but my children gobbled them up and my husband loved them. I dusted them all with powdered sugar and they were a sweet treat :)
