Home Sweet Home Bakealong 32: Banana and Mars Bar Parcels (Aka Fruit & Nut)
I fear my filo had been languishing in the freezer too long. It was rather brittle. Anyway, I like the banana and mars version of these. Very easy and oozy. Mine may not be pretty, but it’s chocolate and banana, what could be wrong with that?
Banana and Mars Bar Parcels
adapted from Home Sweet Home by the Hummingbird Bakery
Makes 12 Parcels
2 Mars Bars
1 x 270g packet of filo pastry (6 sheets)
75g unsalted butter
Icing sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 180c.
Chop the mars bars and banana into slices.
On a clean surface unroll the pastry and keep under a damp tea towel to prevent drying out.
Melt the butter.
Take off one layer of pastry and lay it down, brush with butter.
Put a second layer on top and brush again.
Cut in half across and along the pastry to give four pieces (needs quite a sharp knife so as not to tear it)
Place a small about of the fruit and choc at the end of each piece (maybe a heaped tbsp worth).
Fold the sides in about 1cm to cover in the filling a little and then roll it up. The Ends will hold the filling in, in theory!
Do the same for the rest of the parcels.
Place seam down on a greased baking tray and brush with butter.
Bake for 20min or until golden.
Sprinkle with icing sugar if desired. Eat in the golden period of time when the chocolate it melted but not so hot that it burns your mouth.
