1/2 cup brown sugar

Place chopped fruit in small sauce pan. Stir red wine and brown sugar into the dried fruit mixture. Simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until red wine is reduced by half. Be careful not to reduce too much or mixture will become bitter. Add sriracha chili sauce and salt to taste. Remove pan from heat and let cool to room temperature. Place a spoonful of fruit chutney in each crispy phyllo cup. Top with a small amount of blue cheese crumbles. Place filled phyllo cups on platter. Garnish with chopped parsley.
