  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly brush melted butter on all sides of each tortilla bowl.
  2. Place bowls on large cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until browned on edges and firm to the touch. Cool 15 minutes.
  3. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and shortening uncovered on High 60 to 90 seconds or until mixture can be stirred smooth.
  4. Place 1/2 cup of the crushed cookies on plate. Hold baked bowls by the bottom, and dip each one into melted chocolate, covering top rim of bowl. Dip and roll top rim into crushed cookies to coat. Refrigerate bowls about 10 minutes or until coating is set.

Expert Tips

  • We used cookies & cream ice cream in this recipe, but if you prefer chocolate or vanilla ice cream, feel free to make a substitution.
  • If you like a little caramel with your chocolate, you can add a drizzle of warm caramel sauce along with the hot fudge.
  • Crush cookies quickly and easily by placing them in a food-storage bag and pounding gently with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
