Looking for a fun way to serve dessert? How does a dessert taco sound? Ice cream and fruit with some melted chocolate and whatever other toppings you like, surrounded by a crunchy cinnamon sugar shell. Fun twist on a regular old bowl of ice cream, don’t ya think? And it’s perfect for a “build your own” dessert party too.
Recipe: Dessert Taco
(Use this as a guide, but add any toppings you like!)
frozen or fresh fruit
more toppings: melted chocolate, sweetened coconut, chopped nuts, whipped cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Tear a thick strip of foil for each taco you plan to make. Crumple it, then bend it into a “C” shape. Set aside.
Spray both sides of each tortilla with butter-flavored cooking spray and sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar. Lay tortilla on a baking sheet and fold over into a taco shell shape, with the foil “C” in the middle to help it keep its shape. Repeat for as many dessert tacos as you’re making.
Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until golden; then turn tacos over and bake another 7-9 minutes, or until golden.
Cool completely. Build dessert tacos by filling bottoms of shells with ice cream. Top with fruit and other toppings of your choice.
