This chocolate and pecan version of baklava is easy to make but looks like you've slaved for hours. It is very impressive and tastes delicious.
I have two major issues with the recipe. I checked it after 30 minutes and it was almost done, then forgot to recheck. left for 5o, and it was burned. The bake time is completely off. Also, the recipe tells you to put the leftover nuts and chocolate mixture on the top, which makes it look completely different from your picture, and also makes it more difficult to know when it is finished. - 18 May 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This turned out great, I did not add the melted chocolate to the top and it was certainly sweet enough without it. First time ever using phyllo dough or making Baklava. - 04 Jan 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
it took me a lot longer to make but I am attributing it to that I don't have a lot of experience working with the phyllo dough. will try again. - 22 Apr 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
