Chocolate Tacos filled with vanilla ice cream, chocolate ice cream, whipped cream and strawberries. I used magnolia lace cookies made with cocoa so they had the crunch of a hard taco. Absolutely amazing, you must try these!
Not even a little.

This recipe is indulgent, delicious and a fabulous weekend treat.
The taco portion is a meant to resemble a hard taco. I wanted it to crunch and fall apart like a hard taco shell. My favourite tacos are hard shell tacos. So for me this had to be a hard shell version.
I know there are lots of soft shell versions out there but I wanted to do something a little different. It’s just how I roll.
So I made what is known as a “trumpet cookie”, or also known as a “magnolia lace cookie”. They can be tedious to make so you’ve been warned. It’s totally worth the effort though. I mean look at these things.
Be sure to set aside enough time to make the cookies slowly. You want to make about two at a time. I would also highly suggest not making them too big. If you do they will tear as you dry them.
In order to form the “taco shape” of these you’re going to drape the warm cookie over a wooden or metal spoon that is suspended with two cups. If the cookie is too large the weight will make it fall apart. So be prepared to lose a couple as you find your cookie making mojo.
I also make sure to line my cookie sheets with parchment. The reason for this is once they cook you can cut around each cookie which makes them easier to move around and drape over the spoons to form the shape. This is worth the time and effort, as well as ripping through some parchment. It will make your job so much easier, trust me.
Get creative with these. Mix it up a bit. Use dark chocolate in the cookies or make them with ginger instead. Use different kinds of ice cream inside the taco. Or top with candy or coconut. The possibilities are endless. I hope you love them.
