Tonight we had dinner at Cheeseburger in Paradise for the sole reason that I was hungry for Chocolate Nachos. The first few times that I ate there, I completely avoided the Chocolate Nachos on the menu because they just didn’t sound right. After eating them once, I was hooked!
If you have never seen the Chocolate Nachos before, they are made of the following:
- alternating wedges of flour tortillas and chocolate tortillas
- drizzled with hot fudge
- strawberry pieces
- served with different flavors of ice cream (vanilla and strawberry) for dipping.
They have to be one of my favorite desserts ever!
After sharing the platter with my family, I decided to head home and find the recipe for them online. Every recipe is online, right? Wrong! I can’t find a recipe anywhere for the Chocolate Nachos at Cheeseburger in Paradise. I’ve found a couple of different clues (one being a tortilla company that makes chocolate tortillas for sale in food service). Another clue was that I found powdered sugar residue on a couple of the tortillas.
As close as I can figure, you need to either buy the chocolate tortillas (which seem to be sold wholesale only) or make them yourself. I did find a recipe for making chocolate tortillas that looks moderately possible. While they are still hot, sprinkle them with powdered sugar to create a glaze when they cool. Then drizzle with your toppings.
Update: Our Cheeseburger in Paradise closed so I can’t even get these anymore! I’m going to have to make a trip to whichever one is closest to me and see if they even still have them anymore.
