Sweet Kataifi Parcels
Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes
1 packet of kataifi pastry
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp clove
150g dark chocolate
50g fine breadcrumbs
2 tbsp honey
In a small saucepan bring the water, sugar and spice to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Take off the heat, stir in the honey and allow to cool.
Melt the butter.
In a food processor, process the nuts and spice allowing some chunky bits. Put into a bowl and add the breadcrumbs. Mix thoroughly.
Using a sharp knife cut the chocolate into rough pieces and add to the walnut mixture.
Open the Kataifi and loosen it up into threads.
Brush the muffin holes with butter
Take a small bundle of Kataifi and fill the hole forming a case. Brush generously with butter. Fill with the chocolate/nut mixture and then add some more on top to close off completely. Tuck in little strands and brush with butter generously.
Continue until the muffin tray is full.
Bake in a low oven, 160C for 60-90 minutes. Take out of the oven. Pour cold syrup on hot kataifi. Decorate with nuts mixture and rose petals.
