There are a lot of versions of baklava, walnut, pistachio… For this first test, I chose to make a recipe of Baklava with almonds and chocolate.

Good, for a first, this is not so bad at all but I have to admit that the baklawa with nuts evil sister-in-law who is Armenian-Russian was more than to fall to the ground and much better. But I have to tell you that it peels off downright nuts !! Some crazy stuff to do but eat, it is an absolute success !! Well, if one day I make one with it, I promise, I will share it here… In the meantime, I leave you with my Baklava with almonds and chocolate…
