I always forget how much I like eating and
playing working with phyllo pastry!
I am taking part in a Bloggers competition hosted by Pick and Pay. 40 Bloggers get a list of ingredients every week and must create something with those ingredients and send the recipe and a photo to Pick and Pay. These recipes will be loaded onto the Freshlyblogged web page. You can vote for your favourite recipe on this page, weekly. The page will go live at 14:00 on Monday, 8 July 2013. You stand a chance to win some wonderful prices and if you vote for me I can also win some great prices. The weekly entries will be judges by Justine Drake (Editor of Fresh Living), Anke Roux (Food Editor of Fresh Living) and Yvonne Short (Pick and Pay’s Food developer) and they will decide who will go through to the next challenge weekly! So, what are you waiting for? Go and vote!
One of the ingredients for the first challenge was Pick and Pay’s phyllo pastry and I had some left. Since I do not like wasting I made, amongst other things, some phyllo cones and filled it with Nestle Milo chocolate. It was a wonderful dessert and looked beautiful!
- 2 sheets phyllo pastry
- 50g melted butter
- 160g Milo chocolate
- 200ml cream
- Berry coulis (I quartered the ingredients and left the mint out)
- Berries and mint leaves (optional)
- Pre-heat the oven to 190⁰C.
- Cut 16 triangles (big enough to roll over the cream horns) from the phyllo pastry Butter 8 of them and place the other 8 on top. Butter again and roll around the cream horns.
- Cut some thin strips and roll around the phyllo cones. Place on a baking tray and bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the phyllo is crispy and browned.
- Remove from the oven and cool down completely before removing from the stainless steel horns.
- Melt the Milo chocolate over hot water or in the microwave. Mix and add the cream and mix until shiny. Let the chocolate mixture cool down. It will thicken. Fill the phyllo cones with the chocolate mixture.
- Spoon some berry coulis onto a plate and place two chocolate cones onto the plate.
