  1. Place your dar chocolate and coconut oil in a small microwave-safe ramekin.
  2. Melt via microwave by adjusting the power to 50% and heating at 30 second intervals, stirring in between each. It only took two 30 second cycles to melt mine but may vary depending on chocolate type and oven wattage. You can also melt chocolate stove-top using the double broiler method.
  3. Dip a phyllo cup face-down in the chocolate until the edges are coated, almost like you're rimming a margarita glass with salt. My dish was shallow enough for me to drop the entire phyllo cup into the bowl then I simply inserted a toothpick into the middle of the phyllo cup to remove it and placed it chocolate side up on a plate. It sounds weird when typed out but the execution itself was super easy and took no time at all.
  4. Once each cup is dipped in delicious chocolate, allow them to cool/dry on the countertop or pop them in the fridge to chill.
  5. Once your chocolate has set, fill each phyllo cup to the brim with cranberries, pistachios and pecans.
  6. Pour a little honey into each cup, add a little - or a lot! No need to worry about measurements.
  7. Next melt your white chocolate and coconut using the same method as the chocolate above.
  8. Stir chocolate with a fork then drizzle over each phyllo cup.
  9. Allow chocolate to cool and dig in!

Recipe Notes

Have a few extra minutes? You can toast your pistachios and pecans on a skillet with a little brown sugar and butter for an added level of deliciousness! I do this with my coconut baklava bites and it's ahhh-mazing!

Making this ahead of time? It works marvelously! I dipped my phyllo shells in advance and stored them in an airtight container in the fridge overnight. I combined the chopped nuts and cranberry in a small container on the counter and simply assembled with the honey and white chocolate before serving, though you can fully assemble the entire thing and refrigerate as well!

Want to take your cranberry blissdom to the next level? Try freshly grating orange zest on top of the melted white chocolate drizzle for a burst of citrusy goodness!

Chocolate Cranberry Phyllo Cups with Honey

As I’m sure most of you know by now, I keep a stack of these crispy little phyllo shells in my freezer year round to make everything from no-bake desserts to party appetizers to breakfast bites.

I wait for them to go on sale and pounce, since they’re one of the few packaged convenience foods that everyone in my family adores, making it totally worth the expense in my book. Fingers crossed they knock the price back to $1 a box this year so I can replenish my stash!

    Made yesterday for an outdoor cocktail party. Everyone loved them, but I drizzled dark chocolate vs white chocolate on top. Will definitely make again

    These were amazing! I also added a small piece of candies ginger on top and it was delish! Thanks for sharing!

  • Diana Gillogly

    Don`t be fooled by these! These are NOT BAKLAVA! But they sound very good.

    • Hi Diana! These are simply my twist on a baklava-style dessert, not to worry. I know they’re not traditional but man they are good! 🙂


        You don’t need to bake the phyllo shells at all??

        • If you use Athens phyllo shells you won’t need to bake them first! They’re sold frozen and you’ll just let them reach room temperature which doesn’t take long at all. I use them in a few different no-bake appetizers and love them!

  • These look so wonderfully addicting! Especially since they’re so easy to make.

      Thanks Annie! <3

  • I adore those little phyllo cups, and I LOVE that you made baklava with them! Baklava always sounds so intimidating but your recipe makes it so much easier. Love these!

      Thanks so much Rachel! <3 I'm all for taking the easy route around the holidays as long as it's sketch free 😉 These totally fit the bill!

    Oh.em.geeeee. These look amazing, and I can’t wait to make them! I also think I’m going to have to buy my own stash of these cups once we get back to Charleston.

      Hope y’all adore them!
