Strawberry and Chocolate Dessert Nachos

It’s strawberry season again in Chatham-Kent, so what is better than a dessert featuring that sweet fruit? Homemade crunchy cinnamon chips, strawberries, a drizzle of chocolate and as much or as little whipped cream as you want? Yes please! And if you are reading this recipe later on, just grab a bag of frozen strawberries, let them thaw and enjoy a great summer treat any time of the year. This dish is sure to be the hit of the party (once we can have them again)!

Ingredients

Serves 8

  • 4-6 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar + 2 tbsp (keep separate)
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 pound strawberries, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • whipped cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.  
  2. Make cinnamon sugar by mixing 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon together (you may need more or less of this depending on your preference.
  3. Lightly brush one side of each tortilla with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Cut tortillas into wedges.
  5. Place tortilla wedges on ungreased baking sheet, sugar side up.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Place chopped strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle with remaining sugar.  Stir and set aside for about 10 minutes so the sugar dissolves into a light syrup.
  7. Melt chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave, in 1 minute increments,  stopping to stir each time, until melted.
  8. Arrange cinnamon sugar chips on platter or plate, top with strawberries and drizzle with melted chocolate. Garnish with whipped cream.  
  9. Enjoy!!
