When I was younger, I dreamed of having a mother who would have icy, cold lemonade and fresh, baked chocolate chip cookies waiting for me when I got home from school. Alas, my mom worked instead of baked and felt a snack of chocolate chip cookies was a bad one. In that respect, I've grown to think that the best afternoon snacks are those that combine a little bit of sweet, with a little bit of healthy. These cinnamon and sugar tostadas come together in minutes and pair nicely with fresh cut fruit, making them an ideal after school snack. Kids can help by mixing and sprinkling the cinnamon sugar on the whole wheat tortillas. Want the super easy recipe? Just read more
Usually when I think of a culture that specializes in decadently divine desserts, Mexico hardly comes to mind. I love a good authentic Mexican restaurant, but normally I'm so full of tortilla chips, dips, tacos, and more, that I rarely order dessert. However when I do run across a cinnamon-sugary, chocolatey concoction, I can't resist. Throw in some ice cream and I'm in heaven.
I was very excited when I found this recipe that includes sweet tortilla crisps as a garnish. Jazz up store bought ice cream with a chocolate sauce that can be made 3 days in advance.
