Dessert Nachos

Note:  If this recipe inspired you to use as a guide to make your own, please be considerate and credit annascuisine.wordpress.com.  Thank you!

Here’s a super easy-to-make snack for children and adults alike.   They’re cinnamon flavored chips with caramel from Taco Bell that you can buy at your local grocery store.  I just added my own toppings and jazzed them up with drizzled chocolate and toasted coconut.  I wanted to add some Macademia nuts, but my children are allergic to nuts.  This is so simple, but yet so delicious and addicting.  This is now my children’s favorite snack.  They were saying “oh, so good!” with their eyes closed savoring its deliciousness. 🙂

You can also top it with your favorite ice cream. My children wanted purple yam ice cream.

A Party or Snack Idea

PURPLE YAM FILLED DONUTS

This recipe is super easy.  You can even get the children involved.  A good idea for children’s birthday party, holidays or just a snack.  You can put them in paper bags or any festive container with their name on it serve with their favorite drink.   This sure is a hit at every party or any occasions.  Sometimes, I use this as a reward or surprise for my children when they’re in their best behavior.

There are so many variations you can make with this recipe. You can stuff them with chocolates, mild and sweet cheeses, raspberries, blueberries, coconut, purple yam, jelly, jam, peanut butter, cream cheese, peaches, apples, etc.   If you prefer making a dough from scratch, that’s fine too.

I put them in their favorite color paper bag with their name on it; served with chocolate milk.  My children love this idea.  Sometimes, I staple the bag and make them guess what’s inside.  It’s a game we play to make them excited and all happy. Whoever guess it right, gets a prize. 🙂

Ingredients:

  • Pillsbury Original flavor biscuit dough (8 pieces)
  • Oil for frying
  • Stuffing of your choice (blueberries, strawberries, chocolates, cheese, raspberries, coconut, purple yam, peaches, mango, peanut butter, apples, pumpkin etc)

Preparation Method:

Heat a deep pan with oil over very LOW heat.  Separate the dough and cut them in quarters.  You should have 32 balls when you’re done.  Flatten the dough and put the stuffing of your choice. Then, gather the edges and pinch the dough together and roll using your palm to form a ball.   Make sure you don’t overstuffed the dough or it will open up while frying. And your will ended up with laughing balls (A term I use because of their shapes). Repeat the process for the remaining dough.  Drop the balls in batches (make sure they have enough room, so they don’t stick together) and cook until brown.  This process is very quick.  Be careful not to burn them.  Repeat the process for the remaining balls.  Put the cooked balls on a plate or a bowl lined with paper towel to absorb any excess oil.  Let it cool off a bit.  Place in a bowl with sugar and toss to coat.  Serve warm.
