For the filling

Melt the butter, with the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water

Remove from the heat.

Stir in the remaining ingredients to make a thick paste.

Leave to cool.

 

Lay one sheet of filo on a flat surface.

Brush with meted butter, then lay a second sheet on top and brush with more butter.

Roll a handful of the chocolate and almond mixture into a long sausage shape and place along one long edge of the layered filo.

Roll up the pastry tightly around the filling to make a roll.

Fit the filo roll in a cake tin, so that it sits snugly against the outer edge. add more roll to the tin from the outside towards the centre.

Brush with the melted butter.

Bake in a preheated oven GM4/180C for 30-35min
