Shabbat Menu: Schnitzel and Chocolate Cigars


Chocolate Cigars


1/3 cup almond milk

3oz 70% cocoa chocolate, chopped

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 egg

1 tbsp cornstarch

10 phyllo pastry sheets

7 tbsp margarine, melted


1. Bring almond milk to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. When boiling, remove from heat and add chopped chocolate. Mix until the chocolate is melted with no chunks remaining.

2. Add 1/4 cup powdered sugar, egg and cornstarch. Whisk until evenly incorporated. Set aside.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit  and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

4. Cut phyllo sheets into 6-inch squares and cover with a damp towel.

5. Place one square of phyllo dough on your work space and butter lightly with melted margarine. Place a tablespoonful of chocolate filling at one end of square.

6. Roll the phyllo just like an egg roll,  rolling into a cigar. Transfer rolled cigars onto prepared baking sheets and dust with powdered sugar.

7. Bake for approximately 15  minutes until lightly golden, and serve with your favorite jam.
