Lanie's notes for this recipe:
Had to amend the recipe a bit, as I could not find any phyllo. I used pastry sheets instead and layered them...still delicious!

Add a little of the cheese mixture to the warmed chocolate, then stir this mixture into remaining cheese mixture.

Spoon mixture onto two pastry sheets laying side by side on large cookie sheet. Top with remaining two pastry sheets.

Drizzle with white chocolate and milk chocolate.
Can be served topped with whipped cream.

I'm sorry, meant to delete the 3 tbsp cream when I adjusted the amount. I'll edit that out. Thanks for catching it!

Also Ana, I don't think it would ship well as it does need to be refrigerated after serving.
