Before we dive into the recipe, let’s take a moment to appreciate what makes Krinos Fillo so special. Fillo dough, also known as phyllo or fillo, is a paper-thin pastry dough that’s been a staple in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines for centuries. It’s prized for its versatility and ability to create incredibly flaky and crispy layers when baked.
Krinos fillo dough is the secret ingredient that elevates this Chocolate Hazelnut Fillo Strudel to gourmet status. Its thin and delicate sheets are perfect for creating layers of crispy goodness in this dessert.
Ingredients You’ll Need
1 package of Krinos fillo dough (16 sheets)
1 cup of chocolate hazelnut spread
1 cup of finely chopped hazelnuts
1/2 cup of melted butter
1/4 cup of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Prep Your Workspace: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Make sure you have all your ingredients within easy reach.
Prepare the Fillo Dough: Carefully unroll the Krinos fillo dough and cover it with a slightly damp kitchen towel to prevent it from drying out while you work.
Layer the Fillo Sheets: Lay one sheet of fillo dough on your work surface and brush it with melted butter. Repeat this process, stacking five sheets on top of each other, brushing each one with butter as you go.
Spread the Goodness: Once you’ve stacked five sheets, spread a generous layer of chocolate hazelnut spread over the top sheet. Sprinkle finely chopped hazelnuts on top of the spread.
Roll It Up: Carefully roll the fillo dough and filling into a log, ensuring that the ends are sealed to prevent any filling from leaking out during baking. Place the rolled strudel seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet.
Brush with Butter: Brush the entire strudel with more melted butter. This will help it achieve that beautiful golden brown color when baked.
Bake to Perfection: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until the strudel is crispy and golden brown.
Once out of the oven, sprinkle the Chocolate Hazelnut Fillo Strudel with powdered sugar and drizzle it with a touch of vanilla extract for an extra layer of flavor. Allow the strudel to cool slightly before slicing and serving. Pair it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for the ultimate indulgence.
