Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 10 Old El Paso™ Taco Boats™ mini soft flour tortillas (1 sleeve from Party Pack)
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons finely chopped cocktail peanuts
  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup chocolate sauce
  • 1/4 cup caramel topping

Instructions

Step 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Lightly brush melted butter on all sides of each boat. Place boats on cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until browned on edges and firm to the touch. Cool 15 minutes.

Step 2 In medium microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and shortening uncovered on High 60 to 90 seconds or until mixture can be stirred smooth.

Step 3 Place 1/2 cup of the chopped peanuts on plate. Hold baked boats by the bottom, and dip each one into melted chocolate, covering top rim of boat. Dip and roll top rim into chopped peanuts to coat. Refrigerate boats about 10 minutes or until coating is set.

Step 4 Fill each boat with 2 small scoops (about 1 tablespoon) ice cream; drizzle with chocolate sauce and caramel topping, and garnish with remaining 3 tablespoons peanuts.
