I loosely based the concoction on Christine Waltermyer's recipe. By "loosely based", I mean that I essentially used it as a guideline. By "guideline", I mean that I thought about it fondly as I:
- Made a random mixture of brown rice & maple syrup.
- Loaded it up with chopped walnuts, almonds, and gads of chocolate chips.
- Haphazardly layered the whole concoction between phyllo sheets.
- Hoped for the best (how can you go wrong with chocolate, nuts, & phyllo?)
As for my results, it is possible that I may have over-chipped, since it was pretty oozy when I took it out of the oven...um, and then, when cooled, turned out pretty much like a solid bar of chocolate with flecks of nuts & phyllo speckled throughout.
And what's wrong with that? Nothing.
