Writing this real quick.
I got these amazing and delicious chocolate buttons from my boss who went to Perth last month, and he bought this for me as a souvenir, from the Margaret River Chocolate factory. My SIL who also went to Perth last year (2010) told me that its expensive wor. Could easily cost more than RM100 for that 2 pack and I believe her of course, because the chocolate I bought from Melbourne are damn expensive too and its a bar ..not in buttons form.
I am so happy to receive this souvenir that these 2 packets of chocolate still sits in the fridge, not untouch but consume very very s l o w l y. Its nice to eat the chocolate buttons on its own, its so crunchy!! I like to chew my chocolates!
Since my nieces were here during the school holiday (Dec) I experimented this chocolate snack for them to try. Be my guinea pig!
The Ingredients you need are:
- Filo Pastry
- Assorted Nuts (own preference)
- Olive Oil or Melted butter
First, thaw the filo pastry, but do not let it dry. Open the packet, and let it thaw slowly, use a wet tea towel to cover it to keep it moist. You have to work very quickly if using the filo pastry for whatever you are making, because it breaks easily due to its thinness.
The pack of filo pastry I have has been sitting in the freezer for god knows how long it is. I bought it from Cold Storage, by Pampas.
To make the Crispy Chocolate Filo, cut the filo sheets into small square size about 4 inch by 4 inch (4′ x 4′). Layer 4-5 sheets of the filo pastry and apply melted butter or olive oil on each sheets of the filo pastry generously.
Then put a bunch of chocolate buttons you can subsitute this with 1 square of chocolate from the cooking chocolate bar. On top of the chocolate I put 1 small piece of walnut because I like chocolate with nuts. Wrap the fillings like how you wrap a wanton. Never mind the shape you need to make this quick. Just make sure the filo pastry doesn’t break.
Then bake it in the oven for 8-10 minutes or less until the filo pastry turn brown/crisp! When its done, leave it to cool at room temperature and serve!
Voila, quick chocolate snack , pack with filo pastry crispiness.Tweet
