Chocolate-Cherry Phylio Triangles

Sugar In The Raw | Prep Time: 45 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins | Makes 12 triangles


3/4 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
3/4 cup canned pitted tart cherries, drained
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons Sugar In The Raw®, divided
1/3 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
9 sheets phyllo pastry, defrosted
Butter-flavored cooking spray


Tip: Work quickly and keep phyllo covered with a damp towel while assembling pastries.

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a medium bowl, combine chocolate pieces, cherries, ½ cup Sugar In The Raw® and walnuts. Set aside.

Lay one phyllo sheet flat on work surface; spray lightly with butter-flavored cooking spray. Place a second phyllo sheet over the buttered sheet; spray with cooking spray. Repeat with a third phyllo sheet and a light coating of cooking spray.

Cut the phyllo into four 4-inch wide strips. Place a heaping tablespoon of the chocolate-cherry filling 2-inches from the end of the strip. Diagonally fold the end of the pastry over the filling to make a 3-inch triangle. Continue folding like a flag. Place seam-side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Repeat filling and folding remaining 3 pastry strips. Sprinkle triangles with 2 tablespoons of Sugar In The Raw®.

Bake 10 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm.
