Strawberry Dessert Nachos

 

This is a really fun treat to both make and eat with your little ones! Created by Amanda from Amanda Haas Cooks, this strawberry  snack will win  hearts!

Ingredients

  • 3 Tortillas (either whole wheat or gluten-free if preferred)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar, divided (1 tsp for berries, 2 tsps for whipping cream)
  • tsp cinnamon
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries (makes 2 cups diced strawberries)
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice (optional)
  • 1/2 c nuts (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut each tortilla into 8 triangles using a pizza cutter or knife. You can also stack all three tortillas to cut them all at once.
  3. Place tortillas on baking sheet (remember to use non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper).
  4. Put butter in a bowl and melt in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  5. Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl using a spoon.
  6. Lightly brush the tortilla wedges with melted butter on both sides, and then sprinkle with the mixture of cinnamon sugar on both sides.
  7. Using your cutting board, dice the strawberries (mix with 1 tsp. of sugar and 1 tsp. of lemon juice, if desired.)
  8. Place in oven, set timer for 5 minutes. Flip the cinnamon chips, bake another 5 minutes.
  9. Pour 1 cup of the whipping cream and 2 tsp. of sugar. into a bowl and whip cream on low for 30 seconds using a stand-mixer, hand-mixer or by hand with a whisk. Scrape down the sides, then keep whipping until soft peaks form, another 1-2 minutes.
  10. With cutting board, dice the strawberries (mix with 1 tsp. of sugar and 1 tsp. of lemon juice, if desired.)
  11. Melt the chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwave for about 1 minute watching them carefully and stirring occasionally. (Note: If you melt the chocolate in advance, it thickens up too much). Tip: Add a drizzle of olive oil to the chocolate (!) and it will thin it out for drizzling and also help it harden a little like Magic Shell; Remove the tortilla chips from the oven.
  12. To plate the nachos: Start with a layer of chips; drizzle with chocolate; top with strawberries; add whipped cream; drizzle with a little more chocolate. Optional: Add chopped nuts like walnuts, if you’d like.
