HOW TO MAKE EASY CHOCOLATE BAKLAVA

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 175C.

Step 2

Place the water, cinnamon stick and Lyle's Golden Syrup in a medium saucepan over low heat; stir until the golden syrup dissolves. Increase heat to medium and cook for a further 8 minutes. Remove from heat and discard cinnamon stick.

Step 3

Microwave the hazelnut-chocolate spread for 30 seconds. Combine with the hazelnuts, pistachios, almonds, walnuts, ground cinnamon and salt.

Step 4

Lightly coat a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with oil.

Step 5

Place 1 filo sheet lengthwise in the bottom of the prepared pan, allowing the ends of the sheet to extend over the edges of the dish; lightly brush with butter.

Step 6

Repeat the procedure with 5 filo sheets and butter. Drizzle 1/3 cup melted hazelnut-chocolate spread over the filo and then sprinkle one-third of the nut mixture on top.

Step 7

Repeat the procedure twice with filo, butter, hazelnut-chocolate spread, and nut mixture.

Step 8

Top the last layer of nut mixture with the remaining 6 sheets of filo, each lightly brushed with butter. Press gently into the pan.

Step 9

Cut lengthwise 3 times and crosswise 5 times cuts to form 24 portions using a sharp knife.

Step 10

Bake for 35 minutes until golden.

Step 11

Drizzle any remaining syrup mixture over the baklava, allow to cool on a wire rack, and enjoy!
