I’m not a real big “sweets” person (just don’t try to take my apple pie away!) but I had “the craving” for something bad and different - and geez - hang around with 2 little ones for a day or two and you think like them!
7 (2 ounce) Snickers candy bars (I used 3 Musketeers, Snickers and Milky Way)**
4 (12-inch) burrito-size tortillas (I used small ones)
2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
Vanilla ice cream
Maraschino cherries and whipped cream, optional
Cut 6 Snickers bars into 4 equal pieces. Arrange 6 pieces in the center of each tortilla. Fold up burrito style; seal ends with a toothpick. Transfer to small cookie sheet. Brush all sides of each burrito with the melted butter then cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour. (Can be made ahead. Refrigerate up to 24 hours.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake burritos until golden brown and crisp, 20 minutes.
Coarsely chop remaining Snickers bar. Place each chimichanga in a shallow dessert bowl. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, cherries and chopped Snickers bar.
Makes 4 servings.
So I am the “hero” of the day!!! (and I even enjoyed it!)
**Milky Way for one who does not like nuts, Snickers for who likes nuts, 3 Musketeers for me
I made mine using small tortillas - I think they were enjoyed better that way!
