These amazing chocolate cigars are a bit labour intensive but not all that hard once you get the hang of rolling them. Delicious treats.
I have a trouble to rate this recipe, because this is a recipe with a different reaction in my family. This recipe was a completely new thing for me to make, so I want to write some tips. The recipe is not so difficult as seems. When you make the dough it will have a creamy consistency. Don`t be afraid, it must be creamy. It will become thick after refrigerating (I refrigerated for 3 hours). I made stencils (rounds) on a parchment paper with a pencil using a plate (10 centimeter). Then turn your parchment paper upside down, otherwise the trace of the pencil can be on your baked cigar. Be sure to make a thin layer, your cigars will look more beautiful and you will be able to put more filling inside. I baked the dough for 5 min and I think to rotate the baking sheet is useless. I rolled the dough without any problem, tearing or sticking. I tried to use a wooden spoon, but my cigar sticked to the spoon, so I rolled just using my fingers. Believe me, it is easy to roll. The filling was very tasty, I use only 2 cups whipped cream. But we didn`t like the dough so much. I expected the cigars will be dry like waffles for ice cream, but the dough was soft, similar to roulade dough. And I had a trouble to fill the cigar with the cream completely. I didn`t use grated chocolate to dip the ends. Overall, the recipe is unusual, but, in my opinion, doesn`t deserve a time and ingrediends wasted on it. - 25 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
They are such cool things to make! And not that difficult at all. My mates vere really impressed and it was the first time I saw them fighting over the last one. Great recipe! - 23 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These had great flavor, but the cigar part didn't come out the way I thought it would, they were a little too moist and sticky. The filling began to separate after 1 day. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but they tasted good enough to try again! - 01 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
