Phyllo fans with milky bar Fatima Asif Latif Cut phyllo into rectangles Zigzag as for fan and turn halfway ends overlapping slightly. Brush with hot ghee (Clarified butter) Bake in preheated oven at 180° Once cool Decor with melted milky bar and nibbed almonds. I used pink gel colouring to colour chocolate and almonds. Alternatively dairy milk can be used and you can sprinkle pista (pistachio nuts).
