Fruit and Nut Chocolate Parcels - Home Sweet Home Bake Along - 32/100

These were quick easy and fun to make. More coordinated packet opening than true baking - they make a rather impressive looking sweet treats in no time at all.

These look rather like spring rolls, and are made and rolled in a similar way, except using filo pastry, rather than spring roll pastry.

They are best served warm, when they are still gooey and oozy, but they are perfectly acceptable when cool.

They're kind of like a poor man's baklawa, less sweet and sticky, but less work too!

I got in a bit of a muddle with my shopping order, so am running a week behind, but hope to catch up again shortly.

50g mixed nuts, roughly chopped (I used a few walnuts, pecans, salted peanuts and cashews)
50g mixed dried fruit, roughly chopped (I used candied peel, dried apricots and sultanas)
2x58g Snickers bars, cut into chunks - I used 3x38g knock-off supermarket equivalents
1x 58g Mars bar, cut into chunks - I used 3x38g knock-off supermarket equivalents again
1x270g packet of filo pastry (I used a 250g pack, which had smaller sheets in a greater quantity!)
75g unsalted butter, melted
Icing sugar, for dusting
