Chocolate Hamentashen Filling

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MalkaChaya

This recipe makes a perfect hamentashen filling - it is almost a brownie consistency. It doesn't ooze out like so many jam/jelly fillings and doesn't burn like a chocolate chip filling. Yummy!!

The texture of this filling was sooo good inside the hamentashen I made this week. I read other reviews and decreased the coffee to 1/2 tsp. and increased the sugar to 1 cup. With these changes the filling was just the right sweetness for me and the coffee was not overpowering. The filling stayed inside well with no overflow. I will be using this recipe again. Thank you for a great recipe.
