Yield:
8 purses
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 6 sheets phyllo dough
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons framboise, raspberry or other liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons water
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • On a work surface lay out 3 sheets of phyllo dough, brushing lightly with butter in between sheets. Cut stacked sheets into four squares. Place 1-ounce of chocolate in the center of each square. Gather the four corners of the phyllo square up around the chocolate and twist together to form a "purse". Repeat process for each square and then the remaining phyllo sheets and chocolate. Transfer the purses to a baking sheet. Brush purses with remaining butter and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

  • In a blender combine the raspberries, liqueur, and water and process until smooth. Add additional water, if necessary, to achieve desired consistency. Pass the puree through a sieve to remove the seeds.

  • Serve the phyllo purses warm with the raspberry puree.
