The perfect dessert: Phyllo rolls filled with the sweet taste of chocolate and the crunch of pistachio, plus a dusting of confectioners' sugar.

Made it in two minutes flat. If you don't want to bother melting butter, you can use olive oil. Used pecans because I had no pistachios...so simple and really yummy. And 1/8 of that roll is really a sizeable dense piece of dessert...satisfying. Now I have a good go-to for the left over phyllo when I make spanakopita. Thanks, Martha!
