Tasty Thursday

A dessert quesadilla? Mmmmm, what an unusual but tasty idea! Try this new and inventive recipe from Quesadillas by Donna Kelly and get ready to lick those lips!

Triple Chocolate Decadence
1/2 cup chocolate hazelnut spread
1 (8-ounce) package light cream cheese, softened
8 (9- to 10-inch) flour tortillas
8 ounces dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
Fresh strawberries or raspberries, for garnish (optional)

1. Mix chocolate hazelnut spread with cream cheese. Spread a generous tablespoon of cream cheese mixture over each tortilla.

2. Sprinkle dark chocolate pieces over the chocolate spread on 4 tortillas. Slide one of the chocolate-covered tortillas in skillet over medium heat. Place one of the remaining tortillas on top, chocolate spread side down. Press down with wide spatula to remove any air pockets. Cover and cook 1 to 2 minutes, checking frequently, until bottom tortilla is crisp and browned.

3. Turn over, cover, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more, or until lightly browned. Repeat this process for remaining quesadillas. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and let sit for 1 to 2 minutes, or until melted. Spread melted chocolate chips over tortilla and garnish with fruit, if desired. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.

Makes 4 to 6 servings

This sounds absolutely amazing! We have used different fruits with our tortillas although never thought of adding some chocolate and melting it along with the fruit.

Also if you like a little more sweetness another idea would be to mix cinnamon and truvia (great low calorie sweetner) either on top or in the middle! :-)

Great idea and thanks for sharing!
