      1/4  cup           butter -- clarified
    3      sheets        phyllo dough
    1      cup           superfine or caster sugar
 
 Thaw Phyllo pack and remove 3 sheets...   Refold and return remainder to
 the freezer...  Cover the 3 sheets with a slightly damp kitchen towel...
 
 Melt Clarified Butter in the Micro and whisk into the Cocoa till smooth...
 
 Place a sheet of 1/2 sized parchment on a 1/2 sized SheetPan and reserve...
 
 Place one sheet of the Phyllo on a Stainless or Marble surface...  Using a
 pastry brush, baste the sheet thoroughly with the Cocoa Mixture, stroking
 from the center outwards so not to tear it...
 
 Sprinkle “medium” with sugar...  Add another sheet of Phyllo and repeat
 through 3 sheets...
 
 Lift the stack with a Pastry Spatula and lay *upside-down* on the baking
 parchment on the SheetPan...   Baste the bottom (now upside) of the stack
 with the chocolate...   Coat with the sugar...
 
 Cut into triangles with a sharp knife or use a cookie cutter to cut
 shapes...   Leave excess in place and cover all with another 1/2 sized
 sheet of Parchment....
 
 Place another 1/2 sized Baking Sheet on top and weight with an 8 Cast Iron
 Skillet...
 
 Bake at 350@F for 15 minutes until the Phyllo is crisp...  Remove the Cast
 Iron Skillet, the upper Baking Sheet, and the upper parchment and allow the
 rest to cool on a rack for 10 minutes...
 
 Remove the scraps and break up to feed to the Kiddsters...   Use the shapes
 to garnish your favorite Chocolate Dessert...
