Who doesn’t love a baklava? With a chocolate twist, this recipe is for all the chocolate lovers!
HOW TO MAKE EASY CHOCOLATE BAKLAVA
Preheat the oven to 175C.
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.
Microwave the hazelnut-chocolate spread for 30 seconds. Combine with the hazelnuts, pistachios, almonds, walnuts, ground cinnamon and salt.
Lightly coat a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with oil.
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.
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.
Repeat the procedure twice with filo, butter, hazelnut-chocolate spread, and nut mixture.
Top the last layer of nut mixture with the remaining 6 sheets of filo, each lightly brushed with butter. Press gently into the pan.
Cut lengthwise 3 times and crosswise 5 times cuts to form 24 portions using a sharp knife.
Bake for 35 minutes until golden.
Drizzle any remaining syrup mixture over the baklava, allow to cool on a wire rack, and enjoy!
