COOKING

12 MINS

INGREDIENTS

  • 25g butter 
  • 3 x 32cm x 38cm filo pastry sheets
  • 250g chocolate and hazelnut spread
  • Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar, to dust

HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, then remove from the heat.
  3. Cut each sheet of filo pastry into four rectangles and brush each rectangle with the melted butter.
  4. Spread one tablespoon of the chocolate spread across the long side of each piece of pastry, keeping a 2cm border. Fold a little of the two short sides of the pastry over the filling to seal the chocolate spread inside, then roll up the pastry from one of the long sides.
  5. Repeat with the remaining rectangles to make 12 cigars. Place the cigars on the lined baking tray and brush with a little more melted butter, then bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the cigars from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack, then dust with plenty of Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar before serving.
