  • Duration
  • Cook Time
  • Prep Time


  • 2 sheets puff pastry, cut into 10" by 10" squares
  • 6 bananas
  • 2 tablespoons silan (date honey)
  • 7 ounces dark chocolate, melted
  • 4 eggs, plus one for egg wash
  • 4 egg yolks (use the whites for meringues)

  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 8 squares from a chocolate bar


  1. Make sure the puff pastry is defrosted according the instructions on the package. Preheat oven to 350℉. 
  2. Since this recipe is for two Giant Hamantaschen, trim two sheets of puff pastry into 10x10 inch squares. Place a bowl over each dough and cut into circles.
  3. Slice the peeled bananas across so they can be straightened into a line and place them on top of the puff pastry (see image below).
  4. Drizzle silan on top of each banana. Roll each banana in puff pastry towards the center to form a triangle.
  5. Take a large mixing bowl and add the melted chocolate, eggs, egg yolks, butter, flour and sugar. Mix well until there are no clumps.
  6. Pour half of the mixture into each hamantaschen. Add a few squares of chocolate on top of the filling.
  7. Brush the dough with egg wash and bake for about 12-15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean, or still chocolatey and gooey, if you prefer more a soufflé consistency.
