Step 1: Ingredients
4 C. Hazelnuts
24 oz Bittersweet Chocolate
3 1/3 C. Sugar
3 T. Cinnamon
2 C. Butter (melted)
2 C. Water
1 1/2 C. Honey
1 Orange (zest)
Step 2: Prepare the Filling
Spread the hazelnuts on a large baking sheet and toast for approximately 12 min. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Then, place in a food processor (or nut mill) and grind until finely chopped.
Finely chop the chocolate, or use a food processor, until the chocolate is about the same size as the nuts.
Mix together the nuts, chocolate, 1 1/3 cups sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Step 3: Prepare the Phyllo Dough
Working with a package of dough at a time, unroll onto a cutting board. Use the bottom of an 8in cake pan as a template for cutting uniform circles out of the stack. Place circles on a damp cloth and keep covered. This will prevent the dough from tearing as you work with it.
