Ingredients

  • 1 pkg cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cups butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Filling:
  • 225 g semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup chocolate malt drink mix (such as Ovaltine)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Method

In large bowl, beat cream cheese with butter until fluffy; beat in sugar and vanilla. Whisk flour with salt; stir into cream cheese mixture in 2 additions. Form into 3 discs. Wrap each in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Filling: Meanwhile, in heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt chocolate with butter, stirring until smooth. Stir in almonds, malt drink mix, flour and sugar; remove from heat. Working with 1 disc of dough at a time, between parchment paper, roll out into 12-inch (30 cm) circle. Chill for 10 minutes. Spread one-third of the filling over dough, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) border uncovered. Cut into 12 wedges. Starting at wide end, roll up each wedge, pressing tip to secure. Arrange on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets.

Make-ahead: Freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Freeze in airtight container for up to 1 month.

Bake on top and bottom racks in 325 F (160 C) oven, switching and rotating pans halfway through, until edges begin to brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool on pans on racks.
