Cinnamon Chips are a quick and easy snack or dessert you can make at anytime. I recently featured this recipe on the back of my business card for dmariedining.com. So if it can fit on the back of a business card, you know it must be a very simple recipe without a lot of ingredients or fuss.
Back in the days when I would go to fast food restaurants one of my favorite snacks were the Cinnamon Crispas I would get get from Taco Bell. I don’t think they make them any more but I do remember enjoying them with my tacos. My recipe is not quite like the Taco Bell version but I like them because of the addition of chocolate. I am a true fan of dark chocolate and there are not too many desserts that I don’t like if there is dark chocolate in the mix.
The next time you don’t what to do with all of your leftover tortillas after making one of my Tex-Mex dishes from dmariedining.com, try making Cinnamon Chips. You will be amazed at how quick and easy it is to great a tasty snack and bring back memories from the old days at Taco Bell.
