Ingredients

Are you making this? 
4 sheets Phyllo dough; (14 inches x 9 inches)
2 tablespoons Butter; melted
2 tablespoons Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
2 1-oz squares Semisweet chocolate; finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon Shortening
1/2 ounce white baking chocolate; melted

Original recipe makes 20

Sticks  

Preparation

Combine sugar and cinnamon.

Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface; brush with butter. Cover with a second sheet of phyllo; brush with butter. (Keep remaining phyllo dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon sugar

Cut phyllo in half lengthwise. Cut each half into four rectangles. Tightly roll each rectangle from one long side, forming a 4-1/2-in.-long stick. Place on greased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough, butter and cinnamon-sugar.

Coat sticks with cooking spray; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.

Bake at 425? for 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

In a microwave, melt semisweet chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. OR used dipping chocolate (don't need to add shortening). Dip top half of phyllo sticks in chocolate; allow extra to drip off. If desired, sprinkle with chopped nuts, sprinkles, or other toppings. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. If desired, drizzle with white chocolate.

Notes

These are very pretty and have good texture. They are a great way to used up phyllo left over from another recipe, as the recipe is easy to reduce or multiply based on how much dough you have on hand. They look very pretty on a cookie tray or buffet spread, and are an elegant but light treat.
