Mocha Java “Cigars” - Great to serve with chocolate sauce or ice cream

Even great with Port Wine for dessert! One per person is not enough in my book, so you may want to double or triple this recipe.

* 1/4 cup granulated sugar

* 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

* 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder

* 6 sheets defrosted filo dough

* 2 tablespoons melted butter

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine sugar, cocoa powder and espresso powder in a bowl. Place one sheet of filo on a flat work surface and brush with some of the melted butter. Sprinkle with some of the sugar mixture and roll up around a small wooden dowel, or other long, thin round object. Place on a parchment paper or silicone mat-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until crisp.

Makes 6 servings.
