Choco Tacos

- Makes 12 -

Ingredients

For crepe taco shells:

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 to 3 teaspoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/3 cup flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

For chocolate syrup:

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 teaspoon vanilla

Dash of salt

Chocolate chip ice cream (vanilla also works)

1 cup peanuts

Procedure

1. For crepe shells: In a large mixing bowl, whisk

together the eggs and sugar. Gradually add in the milk, vanilla, and

melted butter, stirring to combine. Add the flour and salt. Beat until

smooth.

2. Heat a lightly oiled, small griddle or frying

pan over medium high heat. (We used a tiny 6-incher for easy

maneuvering.) Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan for each

“shell,” tilting to make sure the liquid coats the surface evenly.

3. Cook the crepe on each side for about 2 minutes, until light brown.

4. This is the fun part. Pick a book. We went with Franz Kafka’s The Trial.

Oh yeah, make sure it’s a pretty clean book. Shape the crepe around the

bookbinding so it forms a taco shell mold. Freeze this contraption for

ten minutes. Be careful when setting up; these are delicate.

5. Continue cooking crepe shells, shaping them around books, and freezing.

6. For the chocolate syrup: Combine cocoa, sugar,

and salt in a saucepan. Add water. Mix until smooth. Bring to boil for

one minute, then remove pan from heat. Once cooled, add vanilla.

7. After the first frozen shell is pretty sturdy,

pull it out and drizzle inside with this (not burning hot) chocolate

syrup. A paintbrush comes in handy here. Throw syruped shells back into

the freezer so chocolate can firm up.

8. Wait at least five minutes before pulling them

out. Delicately stuff them with ice cream, then return them to the

freezer for another ten minutes of firming-up.

9. Remove proto-Choco Tacos and drizzle them with extra syrup. Crush peanuts and throw those on top too.
