    I didn't have enough nuts, so I used a little chocolate to make the two cups of nuts. It really worked out well. It was also a very big hit with my kids!! This one's a keeper!! Thanks!  -  14 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Tasted really good but I had enough filling for another roll (6 more phyllo sheets)  -  12 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this recipe into triangles, and it still worked perfectly. It was my first time using phyllo, but after a few, I got the hang of it. Also, I added a few chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and Heath bits to the filling for variety. They were sinfully delicious!  -  13 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
