This episode is an example of a recipe that didn’t go exactly as planned, but still turned out delicious. Amelia shows us how to make her favorite mint chocolate chip, ice cream cake roll. It’s probably not going to make the cake display at Baskin Robbins, but it sure passed the family taste test. Delicious!

    Dessert Tacos

    • Servings: 12
    • Difficulty: easy
    • Print

    Ingredients

  • Flour tortillas (4 or 5 large tortillas)
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter — melted
  • 1 Tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 8-10 cookies (Oreos or any homemade cookie will work)
  • Maraschino cherries (about 6, chopped)
  • Green cookie icing
  • SPRINKLES!

  • Directions for Dessert Tacos

  • Use a round cookie cutter or similar to cut out small circles from the tortillas (about 3 inches in diameter). Brush each circle on both sides with the melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and arrange in a taco shape on the bottom side of an up-side down muffin tin (see video). Bake at 400 degrees for about 6 minutes.
  • While the tortillas are cooking, chop the cookies to make the “meat” for the dessert tacos. You can put the cookies in a plastic jar and smash them with a meat tenderizer (less messy) or chop them with a “slap chop” (more messy).
  • Assemble the tacos. Put a spoon full of the “meat,” then top with the cherries (which look like tomatoes) and green icing for the lettuce. Add some sprinkles for a little flare.
  • Eat and Enjoy!
