Tortilla Dessert Cups

These are the dessert cups I made a couple of weeks ago. Yep, it's taken me that long to get this picture (along with others) downloaded and organized - you know the drill. Here's the recipe, taken from Taste of Home's Light and Tasty, Premiere Issue.

Tortilla Dessert Cups

3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
10 flour tortillas (6 inches)
1 package (8 oz.) reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
1 cup cold fat-free milk
1 package (1 oz.) sugar-free instant white chocolate or vanilla pudding mix
2 cups reduced-fat whipped topping
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips, melted

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Coat one side of each tortilla with nonstick cooking spray; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Turn tortillas over; repeat on the other side. Cut each tortilla into four wedges. For each dessert cup, place round edge of one tortilla wedge in the bottom of a muffin cup, shaping sides to fit cup. Place a second tortilla wedge in muffin cup, allowing bottom and sides to overlap. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned. Cool completely in pan.

Meanwhile, for filling, beat cream cheese in a mixing bowl until smooth. In another mixing bowl, beat milk and pudding mix on low speed for 2 minutes. Beat in cream cheese on low until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Carefully remove cups from pan. Pipe or spoon about 3 tablespoons filling into each cup. Drizzle or pipe with melted chocolate. Refrigerate for 5 minutes or until chocolate is set. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 20 servings.

Hey these look really good. If I get the time to make some tortillas I think I'll make some of these. Thanks for the recipe.

Those look yummy. Can a diabetic eat those? If so I oughta give it a try sometime. I've come across some diabetic recipes that called for the chocolate chips like this one does. It's making me hungry... :)

Tori, these would probably be even better with homemade tortillas!

Cheryl, diabetics can indeed have these - they are made with sugar-free pudding, and the chocolate is only drizzled on top. The nutrition information says there are 130 calories, 4 grams fat, and 19 grams carbohydrate in one serving.
