Ingredients (10)




Start Cooking

Prepare the Cigars

  1. Place all dough ingredients into the bowl of a mixer and mix until you have a smooth dough. Refrigerate for a half hour.

  2. Place all filling ingredients into a food processor and process until well blended.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Line two baking sheets with Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper. Roll out dough into a flat sheet and cut it into one- and- a- half-inch (four-centimeter) strips.

  4. Spread a thin layer of filling all along the sheet and roll up jelly-roll fashion. Cut into cigars.

  5. Place the cigars on the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining dough. Bake for 20 minutes or until cigars are crispy and golden. Remove from oven and cool.

For the Garnish

  1. Melt the chocolate and the oil in a microwave or double boiler. Form a triangle out of parchment paper, roll it into a cone, and fill it with the melted chocolate. (Or put it into a zip-top bag and cut off the tip.) 

  2. Drizzle thin lines of chocolate on the cooled cigars and refrigerate until ready to serve.
