Ingredients
Make It
Step 1
Place box of frozen phyllo dough in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours prior to using. Letting it sit in the refrigerator overnight is best.
Step 2
Cut bananas into ½ inch coins. Mix banana with brown sugar, vanilla extract and salt. In a medium sauté pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook the banana mixture for approximately 5 minutes, until sugar begins to bubble and bananas become softer. Remove the bananas from the heat and place mixture in a medium bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes, then stir in the chocolate morsels to melt. Set aside.
Step 3
Assembly: Remove phyllo dough from the refrigerator and unroll the dough sheets onto a cool and clean work counter. Be sure that the long side of the dough is closest to you. Leave the sheets in a pile, once they are unrolled. Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter either on the stove or in a microwave. Place granulated sugar in a small bowl.
Step 4
Place one sheet of phyllo in front of you and using a pastry brush, brush the sheet with a thin layer of butter, and then sprinkle sheet with 2-3 pinches of granulated sugar. Place another sheet of phyllo dough on top of the first one and repeat the butter and sugar steps.
Step 5
Repeat with two more sheets of phyllo, until you have 4 sheets on top of each other. Using a pizza wheel or knife and a ruler, cut the layered phyllo into 4 strips, each 3 inches wide each. Use the long side of the dough as your guide for cutting. The long side is typically 12 inches long.
Step 6
Place 2 tablespoons of the banana filling 2 inches below the center line of the dough on each of the 4 dough strips. Starting at the bottom of the dough strips, closest to you, roll the 4 strips into logs, one at a time, being careful not to let the filling spill out. Using care, place strudels onto a parchment lined sheet tray.
Step 7
Repeat this entire process 1 more time, to create 8 strudel in total. Brush the tops of the strudel with the remaining butter, and let strudels chill in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes prior to baking.
Step 8
Preheat your oven to 350° F. Bake strudel approximately 20-25 minutes, until phyllo is golden brown and cooked through. Remove sheet tray to cooling rack and let strudels cool 8-10 minutes prior to serving.
