|10 flour tortillas (fajita size)|
|1 teaspoon vegetable oil|
|1 cup chocolate chips|
|l/2 cup confectioners' sugar|
2. Fold each tortilla into quarters and then snip out shapes with clean scissors as if to make a paper snowflake; add a few decorative cuts but maintain some structural integrity (if your tortillas are stiff, soften them in the oven for a minute).
3. A few at a time, place the snowflakes on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake 5 to 7 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
4. Remove the snowflakes from the oven, immediately dot each one with about a dozen evenly spaced chocolate chips, then return the flakes to the oven briefly to melt the chips.
5. Once the chips begin to melt, transfer the snowflakes to a cooling rack and use a butter knife to spread the chips a bit.
6. Pop the iced snowflakes in the fridge for 5 or 10 minutes to harden the chocolate, then put the confectioners sugar in a sieve and shake an even layer across them.
7. Serve on dark-colored plates.
8. Makes 10.
You could personalize this recipe in so many different ways. Use whole grain tortillas too. I used melted Earth Balance spread brushed on them, and then some sugar in the raw and cinnamon sprinkled on. Mmm. :)
