Today is the first guest post, from a long-time distinguished baker in the Tucson area. Although this isn’t his most famous recipe, chocolate carmel nut bars, this is much easier, cheaper, and faster. Enjoy!
*Note from the baker* This is an adaptation of an award-winning recipe from the 1977 New Mexico State Fair.
Here is a perfect cheap, lazy & delicious apres dinner addition; this is quick and easy, and really good!
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup bittersweet baking chips (the higher the cocoa content the better)
- 3 cups sour cream
- 4 heaping tbsp powdered sugar
- 8 flour tortillas
Use a 6″or 7″ bowl as an outline to cut the tortillas into a consistently round shape.
Stir together chocolate chips, 1c sour cream, and 1 tbsp powdered sugar and cook in microwave (set on medium & stir occassionally) until melted enough to spread. Repeat with bittersweet chocolate.
Lay a tortilla on a plate and spread about a third of one of the chocolates, add another tortilla and spread the other chocolate. Keep alternating layers, ending with a tortilla. Mix the remaining cup of sour cream and 2 tbsp of sugar, and spread as a frosting. Garnish with cocoa powder, chocolate shavings and refrigerate.
Variations can include any type of chocolate of your choice, layers of mint or caramel, whatever! Use your imagination, but don’t go cheap on ingredients; use the good stuff!
