Dessert nachos are everything! These crunchy chips are covered in cinnamon sugar. They are then drizzled with a smooth and rich chocolate sauce and topped with chopped strawberries.
Thanks to Enjoy Life Foods for sponsoring this post. We love their products!
Truly there is nothing quite like a big ol’ plate of these dessert nachos. They are such an easy dessert that is also great for serving a crowd. The chocolate sauce we made using Enjoy Life Foods semi-sweet mini chips couldn’t be more decadent!
While you could easily make these dessert nachos with regular corn tortilla chips, I wanted to make them allergen-free. I started by using a bean based tortilla chip.
To sweeten them up, I combined cinnamon and sugar together and sprinkled it over the chips. To make sure it sticks, spray them with some clean oil (I used avocado oil spray) just barely, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
HOW DO YOU MAKE DESSERT NACHOS?
After sweetening the chips up with some cinnamon sugar, you will want to make a delicious chocolate sauce. I like to make mine using Enjoy Life Foods semi-sweet mini chips and some coconut oil. If you are allergic to coconut, feel free to use another oil.
While chocolate has become a traditional Valentine’s Day treat and a central ingredient in decadent desserts, for individuals with food allergies or dietary restrictions, this can be a source of stress or feeling left out, but with this recipe, everyone can eat freely.
I love that Enjoy Life baking chocolates are certified gluten-free, free-from 14 common allergens, verified Non-GMO, certified kosher, AND certified vegan and paleo-friendly, making them a dessert solution for individuals with many different types of dietary restrictions!
My friend Chrystal of Gluten-Free Palate also uses their chocolate to make a homemade chocolate sauce variation that you will want to try as well.
You will then give the cinnamon sugar chips a nice drizzle. I like to be generous with the rich chocolate sauce.
Top with some chopped strawberries and finish them off with a sprinkling of more Enjoy Life Foods mini chips. You can even add some Valentines sprinkles if you’d like.
HOW LONG DO DESSERT NACHOS STAY FRESH?
I can honestly say that we haven’t had leftovers for more than a few hours because people come and graze on them until they are gone.
However, if you store them in an airtight container, you can enjoy them the next day after making them. They won’t be quite as crisp but they are certainly still delicious.
While strawberries are my favorite topping, you can definitely get creative and add other fruit. I like diced pineapple, blueberries and blackberries.
For a nice kick of heat, feel free to add a pinch of cayenne to the chocolate sauce before drizzling. Although, I don’t recommend this for kiddos.
Since dessert nachos don’t have to be baked, you can whip them up in minutes! This means, you can also serve them on whatever platter you want.
I love to use my marble cheeseboard whenever I get the chance because it is just so pretty! A cake stand or even just a pretty plate would work too.
While we love making dessert nachos, they also go great with more chocolate. Now through February 14th, you can get 15% off Enjoy Life Foods Valentines minis with code: BeMine15! They come in rice milk, dark chocolate, rice milk crunch and variety packages.
