(for the filo.. lay it on a damp towel covered with plastic wrap once opened to keep it from drying out. Place one on top as well.)

I basically just used this recipe as a concept so I am not assigning stars. That said, I really enjoyed what came out! I used a mister of olive oil instead of butter. I also cut the phyllo into 3 parts (because I was having a hard time cutting into fourths). I just dumped a few semi-sweet chips in and then folded into triangles. (I'm getting better at that!) Then I sprayed the tops with more olive oil and shook some cinnamon sugar on top (omitting the cinnamon earlier). Then I cooked for the recommended time but did not melt the chocolate for the top. Thanks so much for an idea to work from. I appreciate it!
