Tortilla Chips topped with chocolate, nuts, toffee bits, coconut and M&M's

It's Zippy Tip Tuesday!

Last weekend, my S.O. (Significant Other) and I went to the Saugatuck Brewery, in Saugatuck, Michigan. We enjoyed the most amazing hummus with homemade flour tortilla chips, but our ratio of chips to hummus leaned heavily on the chips, so we ended up bringing several of them home.
 Since we didn’t have dessert at the restaurant, I decided it would be fun to turn these delectable little leftover chippy triangles into a sweet treat. I started by melting some chocolate and spreading it onto each chip. I then sprinkled the chips with various toppings — chopped nuts, toffee bits, coconut, M & M’s, Reese’s Pieces, dried cranberries, etc.

Yum! The crunchy, salty chip was a great vessel for the sweet toppings; and before we knew it, our leftovers had been polished off rather quickly!

I suppose if you wanted to make your own chips for Chocolate Nacho Pizza, you could do that too. Just take flour tortillas (although I’m sure corn would be good too!), cut them into quarters and fry in oil at 360 degrees for a couple of minutes.

Or, if you REALLY wanted to get fancy, you could make your own homemade tortillas, but that would totally move us out of the realm of “Zippy Tips”. I guess we could save that for another post! Visit my blog at:  http://jazzygourmetblog.com

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.

Chocolate Wine Pairing

Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based desserts; sauternes or sweet German wines with pound cake, cheesecake, and other mildly sweet desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines with sweeter desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines, port, madeira, late-harvest zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts.
