Movie Night Recipe: Out-of-This-World Popcorn Ice cream Dessert Tacos
Family movie nights always feature highly during the winter school holidays in my house. Is there anything better than snuggling up together, with the heater on, watching a good movie you can all laugh at together? It’s one of my favourite things to do, and it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in some treats.
A movie night, of course, isn’t complete without popcorn and ice-cream choc tops, so I recently concocted the perfect recipe to combine the two, all in the comfort of my own home; Chocolate coated tacos stuffed with popcorn ice-cream! OH yes I did!
Not only are they super-easy to make, they are out-of-this-world amazing!
- Mission Foods mini wraps
- Cooking chocolate
- Vanilla ice-cream
- Sweet and Salty popcorn
- Optional: chopped nuts, hundreds and thousands, popping candy, to top.
Preheat oven to 200C. Fold over the mini wraps, and place a scrunched aluminum foil ball between them to create a taco shape (as shown below). Cook for 20 minutes until they harden and hold their shape – turning them over halfway through.
While the tacos cook, take the ice cream out of the freezer to thaw a little.
Melt chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of water.
When the ice cream is softened a little, scoop it out into a large bowl, and mix in the popcorn. I used half of this 120g bag, but add as little as or as much as you like.
When the tacos have cooled, fill them with the popcorn ice cream mixture. (Return any left over ice cream into the tub and into the freezer for your next movie night tacos!)
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the tacos, and sprinkle with your choice of topping. (Chopped hazelnuts are my personal favourite!)
Return to the freezer for 20 minutes.
Best served with a hilarious family animation like HOME (due for release on DVD and Blu-ray on 8th July 2015.)
While you wait for the tacos, why not print out these free and fun HOME activity sheets to do with the kids.
