Anieema's Hamentashen Filling Recipes #2 and #3

Chocolate & Nut Hamantaschen Filling (Dairy)

(Use dough recipe from recipe #1)
5 ounces semisweet chocolate
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
6 tablespoons butter
2/3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs
2 tsps. vanilla extract
1 tablespoon instant coffee
3/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups chocolate chips
1/3 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Melt the first two chocolates together. Mix in all the other ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips and nuts. With the extra batter, you can make yummy chocolate cookies, but these give a "brownie" like filling to the hamantashen.

praline & white chocolate filling

Just melt one package of white chocolate chips with 1 cup of chopped pecans and 1/4 stick of butter. Stir in 1 cup of rice krispies. The pecans get all toasty and the white chocolate is excellent! The rice krispies gives it crunch texture. (Can you tell I'm fasting today--all I can think about is food, food, food!) Too bad Pesach comes out so soon after Purim or I'd be inventing new hamantash flavors for months!
