Homemade Choco Tacos: it consists of a waffle cone “taco shell” stuffed with vanilla ice cream, dipped in milk chocolate and topped with peanuts. I make it a bit different with a fudge-swirled ice cream and lots of different toppings!
Summer as a kid meant tennis camp in Big Bear, shorts and tank-tops every single day, Wimbledon, and long, slow days spent mostly outside, playing hide and go seek until the street lights flickered on.
There were also lots of sleepovers where ten girls would pile in someone’s basement or room and we’d watch Sandlot, The Shining and Pet Cemetery, until a parent would force us to go to sleep already! And sometimes, in the middle of the night, we’d sneak into the kitchen and open up the freezer hoping for something awesome. My friends could always count on my freezer being full of lots of ice cream (dad’s favorite) and if we were really lucky, there’d be a few Choco Tacos; I always bought extra from the ice cream truck.
My internal 12-year-old self has always wanted to make Homemade Choco Tacos at home and it always seemed somewhat complicated. UNTIL NOW!! Let’s start with the basics.
What is a Choco Taco
If you’re sadly unfamiliar with a Choco Taco, here is the breakdown:
- Waffle Cone. Flat circle of waffle cone that is gently folded over to make a “taco shell”
- Vanilla Ice Cream. It’s filled with vanilla ice cream.
- Dipped in melted milk chocolate.
- Topped with crushed peanuts.
We’re making some adjustments. And instead of going super traditional, I decided to make a no-churn ripple fudge ice cream. And instead of peanuts, I went with shredded coconut, sprinkles and crushed pistachios.
But truly the sky is the limit, and go with what you like!
Why Were Choco Tacos Discontinued?
Klondike (the company behind Choco Tacos) said that it had dwindling sales. They’ve stated that out of their entire portfolio of products/ice creams that Choco Tacos haven’t been performing very well. The demand just isn’t there. Perhaps this will change due to the uproar!
How to Make Homemade Choco Tacos
- To start, make a no-churn fudge ice cream. Start by making a fudge swirl by combining brown rice sugar, heavy cream, cocoa powder and chocolate.
- Beat together heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk until soft peaks form.
- Layer about 1/3 of the heavy cream mixture to the bottom of a parchment lined loaf pan. Swirl in dollops of the fudge and then repeat until you’ve worked through all of the ice cream. Transfer to the freezer.
- Mix the batter ingredients together. Add a dollop of the batter to the center of your waffle maker (you could also do this in a nonstick pan). And close the maker for 1 minutes. When you open it, immediately remove it and using a thin book, lined with a paper towel, press it against the binder. This will help make it fold like a taco shape. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
- Use a teaspoon and fill the tacos with the ice cream. You really want to fill them up all the way. Place them on a baking sheet and transfer to the freezer to firm up.
- Temper the chocolate. Dip the top edges of the taco into the chocolate and sprinkle with whatever toppings you’re using. Transfer back to the freezer to set! Repeat with all of the tacos.
