 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6      ounces        bittersweet chocolate
      1/2  cup           granulated sugar
    8      sheets        filo -- defrosted
    8      tablespoons   unsalted butter (1 stick) -- melted
                         Equipment
                         An 11- by 17-inch baking tray,
                         lined with parchment paper
 
 
 Break up 4 ounces of chocolate into 1/2-ounce pieces. Set aside. 
 In a food processor, finely grind the remaining chocolate with the  
 sugar. Lay 8 sheets of filo out on top of each other. Place one 
 sheet lengthwise on the work surface. Keep the remaining sheets 
 covered with a damp towel.
 
 Brush the sheet with some melted butter. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 
 tablespoons of the sugar mixture. Place a second sheet over the 
 sugared sheet. Butter the second sheet and sprinkle with the sugar 
 mixture. Add 2 more sheets, buttering and sprinkling between each.
 
 Cut the filo horizontally into 4 even strips. Starting at the left 
 side of 
 one of the strips, place a 1/2-ounce piece of chocolate 2 inches 
 from the end. Fold the filo that is to the left of the piece of 
 chocolate 
 over the chocolate toward the back side of the strip, making a 
 3-inch triangle. The left end of the filo should be even with the 
 back edge.  Fold the piece of chocolate to the right, over itself, 
 retaining the  triangular shape. Fold the chocolate piece toward the 
 front edge of  the strip. Continue wrapping the chocolate, 
 alternating 
 the direction with each fold, until you get to the end. (It is like 
 folding a flag.) Wrap the other strips in the same manner. 
 With the remaining sheets, make 4 more chocolate-filled triangles.
 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the triangles on the baking 
 sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve warm.
