Baklava Chocolate Bars
This naughty but nice treat makes a beautiful gift and is quite impressive if you work with the right bar mould. Although I cannot remember waffle cones as an ingredient of baklava, they proved to be the best answer to the pastry crunch I was seeking. Not bad, if I say so myself. I am pretty sure you will agree. This recipe appears in my latest cookbook, CWT: more great recipes for the Thermomix. If you don’t already have it, you should really go get it AND we now have it available on iBooks as well...YAY. Although I do love an ‘actual’ book, I know there are those amongst you who prefer the digital version...so there you are. All sorted!
