Mucho Choco Tacos


When looking for family activities to keep your children busy, you might want to consider cooking. Easy- to-make and great tasting "kid-friendly" recipes can make time in the kitchen a fun activity for the whole family.


8 Old El Paso Stand 'N Stuff taco shells (from 4.7-oz box)
1 (24-ounce) package chocolate-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
2 cups sliced bananas
3/4 cup hot fudge ice cream topping
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 aerosol can whipped cream topping
8 mint leaves, if desired


Heat oven to 325°F. Heat taco shells as directed on box. Meanwhile, melt chocolate candy coating as directed on package.
Carefully dip each taco shell into melted chocolate, using spoon to get chocolate on inside of shell; hold shells above bowl to let excess chocolate drip off. Stand shells upright on waxed paper; let stand until chocolate hardens, 10 to 15 minutes.
In medium bowl, mix strawberries and bananas. Divide fruit evenly into taco shells.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave fudge topping on High 30 to 45 seconds or until soft. Stir in cinnamon and vanilla. Drizzle topping over fruit in shells. Top with whipped cream; garnish with mint leaves. Serve immediately.
