  • 4 sheets phyllo dough (14x9-inch size)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon shortening
  • 1/2 ounce white baking chocolate, melted

Nutritional Facts

1 phyllo stick equals 38 calories, 2 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 3 mg cholesterol, 18 mg sodium, 4 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, trace protein.


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface; brush with butter. Cover with a second sheet of phyllo; brush with butter. (Keep remaining phyllo dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.)
  2. Cut phyllo in half lengthwise. Cut each half into five 4-1/2x2-3/4-in. rectangles. Tightly roll each rectangle from one long side, forming a 4-1/2-in.-long stick. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Coat sticks with cooking spray; sprinkle with half of the cinnamon-sugar.
  3. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough, butter and cinnamon-sugar.
  4. In a microwave, melt semisweet chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip one end of phyllo sticks in chocolate; allow extra to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Drizzle with white chocolate. Yield: 20 sticks.

"My family is thoroughly enjoying these. I used the phyllo sheets remaining after making a different recipe. It is easy to adjust the amounts of butter and cinnamon sugar for more or fewer phyllo sheets. I did not dip any in melted chocolate, although I may try it for a Christmas treat.

I will add this recipe to my list of Christmas recipes."

"I made 12 dozen of these for a Christmas Cookie Exchange. They were very good!! Easy just time consuming. I did change it up a bit after a few dozen. Instead of sprinkling the sugar/cinnamon on top after rolled, I put it on the second sheet then rolled them. They had a much better flavor!!!!"
