Sweet, Chocolately Delicious Baklava

  • 1 lb. real butter
  • 1 package filo dough
  • 1 c. chopped almonds or pecans
  • 1 package chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 c. honey
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Preheat oven to 425.

  • Mix sugar, cinnamon, chopped nuts, and chocolate chips in mixing bowl.

  • Melt butter in medium saucepan/

  • Place one sheet of filo dough in an 11x9 pan and butter it, continuing until you have used 1/8 to 1/4 of the package (my personal preference).

  • Then spread on a layer of chocolate mixture. Repeat with filo dough and chocolate until all is used.

  • Cut into 1" squares. Place in oven and bake about 35 minutes (until golden brown).

  • While that is baking, in a medium saucepan over medium-low, heat the honey, water, and lemon juice until it comes to a light boil. Remove from heat.

  • Once your baklava is out of the oven, place the pan on a cookie sheet and immediately pour syrup mixture over. BE CAREFUL THE SYRUP WILL MOST LIKELY START TO BOIL IMMEDIATELY (sometimes overflowing onto the cookie sheet). Allow to cool, then enjoy.

  • For looks I sometimes melt a few chocolate chips and drizzle them on top. A viewer, who may not be a professional cook, provided this recipe. The FN chefs have not tested this recipe and therefore, we cannot make representation as to the results.
