Choco-Taco Recipe with Smart & Final Warehouse Store
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.
Making the tacos
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.
Smart & Final had everything we need to make this Choco-Taco recipe! After finishing up our shopping trip, we headed home. The kids couldn’t wait to get started on making the Choco-Tacos!
Where to shop
Smart & Final is a great place to do a one stop shop of everything from produce to meats. They carry warehouse size items without a club fee, making shopping easy, less expensive and less daunting to shop in than a big warehouse store. Smart & Final is a perfect place to shop for all your food needs, bakery items, etc.
