      I've been wanting to make this for quite a while and finally got the chance. I love spanokopita and the ingredient list for this recipe intrigued me. A lovely combination, although I would make a couple of slight changes next time. I mixed in all the spices except the chocolate with the beaten eggs prior to mixing the other ingredients in and wish I had also mixed the chocolate in with this instead of at the end. There were pockets of the chocolate that distracted from the other flavors because of this. I would have liked this to be slightly sweeter because the unsweetened chocolate was a bit overpowering, and would double the dried fruits/wine to compensate for this. Thanks for sharing, we will definitely enjoy this again!
