Cinco De Mayo - Cookie Taco Treats


Momma always said, "Don't play with your food", but I think we should make an exception in the case of cookie tacos! These little cuties easy to make, not to mention ¡muy delicioso! and fun for kids of all ages. Perfect for a Cinco De Mayo celebration or any fiesta!

Ingredients:

- vanilla cookies
- chocolate icing
- coconut flakes
- red hot candies
- orange and yellow jimmies
- green food coloring
- serrated knife
- piping bag and 2 or 3 piping tip

Directions:



Step 1: Create your "taco shells"

Start by separating your cookie halves and scraping off the cookie cream filling. Save the filling and set aside. Next, using a serrated knife, in a sawing motion, cut off a third of your cookie.


Step 2: Assemble your "taco"

Add a dollop of chocolate icing to the pattern side of your cookie so that the smooth side faces outward. Sandwich the icing with your other cookie half, pattern side facing the icing, to form your taco shape.

Step 3: Decorate!

To create your lettuce, add one drop of green food coloring and one or two drops of water to a small bowl of shredded coconut flakes. Stir until the green food coloring is diffused. Sprinkle on the lettuce to your taco. Add your red hot candies for tomatoes and jimmies for cheese. Finally, using your piping bag, placed the cookie cream in your bag and pipe onto the taco as the sour cream.


Step 4: Enjoy!

Seriously, how cute did these turn out? These can be made the day before and stored in an air tight container or served immediately. If you don't like coconut you could always use other green candies like green sour punch straws diced up or green airheads shredded. If you don't prefer red hot candies you could always used red mini M&Ms or normal sized red M&Ms cut in half. Whatever you choose, make them your own and enjoy!
