We prepare a dry mixture of: chopped walnuts, chocolate chips, cocoa and sugar 3 tbsp. In a separate bowl, beat: egg 3 tbsp sugar until blanching, add flour, melted butter and chopped dates (pre-soaked in brandy, whiskey or other alcohol). Mix gently until a homogenous mixture, which then add to dry ingredients and mix again lightly with a suitable spatula (without mixer). Cut the puff pastry into squares, which arrange in mono muffins, pre-rinsed with cold water. Spread the filling in the middle of each square (to me is received 23 baklava). Baklava Bake in a preheated oven at medium heat in order to fan the sheets well (about 10-15 minutes). Leave to cool completely and pour in hot syrup, as in trays of muffins. Leave overnight so to take good syrup.

Indeed, Reni delicious! Today you and Ina I said that I do not like baklava and for that reason last night not tried dessert. However, however ... today when I got home, could not refrain, call your *offer recipe without knowing the taste and* error has been corrected: Miracles! :) :) :)

As I assumed, very delicious! I tried them (today Pepi treated us) and I'm thrilled :) Great offer!

Many thanks for the support Reni! :) When I offer a recipe always worried whether it will be approved by others, different people - many tastes! Today, however, all colleagues (who managed to try :)), impressed by the dessert and I'm calm!
