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!

Tasted really good but I had enough filling for another roll (6 more phyllo sheets)

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!

This was simple and tasty. I used butter spray on the dough to save some calories. It was a little dry but went great with ice cream (thanks to the reviewer that suggested it!)

The flavor is great, but it is dry. I will make it again, but I would like to make the nut mixture with more moisture. I will also bake it whole rather than sliced, just to keep it together. I also think that ice cream would be a great addition to serve it with hot.
