First, let me wish all of the moms a Happy Mother's Day! I don't know about y'all, but I am happy with dinner that I don't have to cook, homemade cards (or store bought) and a special treat made by my kiddos!

This year, my kiddos wanted to make me something special for Mother's Day and they had an awesome idea to make me these Choco-Tacos. If you know anything about me, tacos rank up in the top 5 best foods on the planet. A dessert version with chocolate?! I know they love me!! I loved the idea of making these Choco-Tacos! The best part was, these Choco-tacos are easy enough for my teenagers to make by themselves with my supervision and the two younger kiddos were able to help with the chocolate and sprinkles!

Although it may look complicated, let me assure you that they're not! If you don't have a sugar cone waffle maker, you can make these on a griddle or in a skillet like pancakes - you will need to flip them once after about 30-45 seconds and let them cook an additional 30-45 seconds.

If you don't have a taco mold, you can easily drape wax paper over books set up like tents and drape your waffle cones over the books to help shape them.

We stopped at Smart & Final to get some supplies for a barbecue this weekend and while we were there, we had the kids pick a flavor of ice cream for their Choco-Tacos. Vanilla is one flavor everyone in our family likes, so they picked up some First Street Vanilla Ice Cream. Feel free to use your family's favorite First Street Ice Cream.

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients
    For the chocolate tacos:

    • 2 tbsp. butter
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • ¼ tsp. salt
    • ½ cup sugar
    • ½ cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
    For the filling:
    • 6 cups First Street Vanilla Ice Cream

    3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, vanilla and salt. Add the melted chocolate mixture and whisk until smooth. Set aside.

    4. In a separate medium bowl, combine the sugar, flour and cocoa powder. Fold the flour mixture into the egg mixture just until blended. Do not over-mix.

    5. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the batter onto the center of the preheated sugar cone waffle iron. Close lid and cook for 1-2 minutes, depending on desired crispness.

    6. Remove the sugar cone waffle and drape over a taco mold. Allow to cool completely.

    7. Repeat with remaining batter.

    8. Once the chocolate tacos are cooled, fill with ice cream and place in freezer to firm up.

    16. I do not have that much of a sweet tooth but at certain days, the craving does arise out of the blue. During such instances, I would start rummaging through my storage pantry for the right ingredients to whip up something sweet.

    19. Even easier wrap a waffle cone bowl [premade from grocery store]in wet paper towel microwave for 15-25 seconds it's soft enough to reshape it into a taco shell
