The evening that I made the BBQ Chicken Wonton Tacos, I had some leftover baked wonton taco shells. Pastor Alaska wandered into the kitchen and asked if I had any plans for the leftover shells. Assuming he wanted to snack on them, I shook my head as if to say “No plans,” and waved a soapy hand over my shoulder and then resumed washing the dishes. Moments later, I saw he had the vanilla ice cream out along with several dessert plates. “Ice cream tacos?!” I thought. The man is a genius.
What goes well with a crispy, warm shell filled with vanilla ice cream? Cinnamon sugar, no doubt! So, we dusted the shells with cinnamon sugar, filled them with ice cream and handed them to the kids for dessert. They were over the moon about their ice cream tacos.
To dress this dessert up a bit for the adults, we put the tacos on a plate and topped them with a little chocolate syrup. Forks optional. This whimsical dessert comes together quickly and tastes amazing – cold, creamy ice cream meets crunchy, warm wonton shell, sprinkled with comforting cinnamon sugar and drizzled with chocolate. Oh baby.
