Okay, THIS was the hit of the party. People just couldn't get enough. I made them and froze a few days before the party then baked for 15 minutes. I made 50 of them:

Chocolate-Coconut Filo Triangles
from Evelyn in Athens

4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (PLEASE use really good chocolate- I used Cadbury's Royal Dark and it was fabulous in this recipe)
1/4 cup grated sweetened coconut, toasted
1/4 cup blanched almonds, toasted
1/2 cup butter, softened
6 sheets phyllo pastry, halved crosswise
vanilla ice cream
In a food processor, chop chocolate fine; add coconut, almonds and ¼ cup of butter.
Blend mixture until smooth.
Melt remaining butter.
Working with 1 strip of filo at a time, arrange the strip on a work surface with short side facing you (cover the remaining filo with a damp towel to keep from drying out).
Brush strip lightly with some of the melted butter.
Fold down top right hand corner of filo to form a triangle; put 1 tablespoon of filling in center and continue folding in same way, to enclose filling completely (the folding process is like you are folding the flag to make a triangular shape).
Brush with some of remaining butter and repeat 11 more times, making 12 filo triangles.
(can be prepared up to 2 weeks in advance and kept wrapped and frozen) Preheat oven to 400F and bake triangles for 8-12 minutes (the longer time if you’re baking them frozen), or until golden.
Serve hot with ice cream.
