Aug 26, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (125 g) Old El Paso* 12 Taco Shells
  • 2 cups (500 mL) milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 6 cups (1.5 L) vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chocolate ice cream topping
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chopped nuts (any variety)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (180°C). Heat taco shells for crispness as directed on package. Line baking sheet with waxed paper.
  • 2
    In a wide 4 cup (1 L) microwavable bowl or measure, microwave chocolate chips on High 1 minute. Stir vigorously every 15 seconds. Microwave 15 seconds longer or until chips can be stirred smooth.
  • 3
    Carefully dip open side of each taco shell into melted chocolate, using spoon or brush to get chocolate on inside of shell; hold shells above bowl to let excess chocolate drip off. Stand shells upside down on waxed paper-lined baking sheet and immediately place into refrigerator to let chocolate harden.
  • 4
    Allow ice cream to soften enough to make it easier to spoon into the taco shells. Carefully fill each shell with about 1/2 cup (125 mL) ice cream. Place in freezer to harden & just before serving drizzle with caramel and chocolate topping and sprinkle with chopped nuts.
