Strawberry Chocolate Nachos

Today is the last day of school before the kiddos track out for 3 weeks.  This last 6 weeks has flown by!  Seems like yesterday I was making my sparkly-eyed girls this scrumptious treat for their first day after-school snack.  I first saw this idea on Our Best Bites and fell in love.  What  better way to talk about your first day of school than over a plate of this deliciousness?!  Yes, this IS as good as it sounds and looks, plus it is super simple to put together.  Who was a ROCKSTAR, bestest-Mama-ever that day...this gal right here!

Strawberry Chocolate Nachos
Recipe Source:  Our Best Bites

Proportions are up to you, make to taste!
  • Baked Cinnamon Chips*** (see super simple recipe below)
  • Diced strawberries tossed with granulated sugar and left to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Melted Chocolate Chips (your choice of flavor).  Simply place desired amount of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and cook in 30 second interavals, stirring in between until melted.
  • Whipped Cream.  I used the aerosol can stuff, but you can use fresh made or Cool Whip
Place Cinnamon Chips on a platter and top with diced strawberries.  Drizzle with melted chocolate (which I did by placing in a small sandwich baggie, snipping the corner) and top with whipped cream.

***For the Cinnamon Chips***
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt 4 TBSP butter and mix in 1 tsp vanilla.  Simply spread melted butter/vanilla mixture on top of some flour tortillas and sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top.  We liked it when we went a tad heavier on the cinnamon sugar than the ones we gave a light dusting.
Using a pizza cutter, cut tortillas into 8 wedges.  Place them (not touching each other) on an ungreased baking sheet (cinnamon sugar side up) and bake for  10-12 minutes.  Keep an eye on them so they don't burn!  Remove from baking sheet and put on a cooling rack.  Repeat with remaining tortillas.
These are AWESOME just eaten as a snack as well.
