Halloween is right around the corner. How about making Chocolate Taco Monsters for a fun and festive treat?
There are cute Halloween treats. Then there are tasty Halloween treats.
Today’s Chocolate Taco Monsters make the cut in both areas. They are fun to make, easy enough for kids to assemble on their own, cute as heck, and so so delicious!
Each little monster is filled with creamy whipped chocolate ganache. The exterior is a tortilla. Believe it or not, I used Old El Paso Soft Tortilla Mini Taco Boats.
They are just the right size to make little 2-3 bite treats. Plus when you fold mini tortilla boats in half they create the perfect shape to make a monster face!
Aren’t they fun?
The kids loved making these Chocolate Taco Monsters. With supervision, they were able to finish all the steps on their own. They especially loved scooping the ganache, folding the mini taco boats, and decorating the monsters.
We used food coloring spray to dye the monsters different colors. White chocolate chips as teeth. Candy eyeballs. and Premade colored frosting tubes for convenience. If you’d rather make frosting from scratch and use piping bags, go for it!
You can find color mist, large candy eyes, and colored frosting tubes in the baking section of your local grocery store, at a craft store, or on Amazon.
Look for Old El Paso Soft Tortilla Mini Taco Boats in the Mexican food section of your grocery store.
Chocolate Taco Monsters can be made a day ahead, or as a kids craft/snack during Halloween parties.
Once the frosting dries, you can even individually wrap your Chocolate Taco Monsters as party favors!
