In the US, Cinco De Mayo tends to be centered around drinking. But because I don't drink, I have had to find other ways to celebrate. In the past, this has usually consisted of eating an inappropriate amount of nachos. I LOVE NACHOS.
But seeing that I am DEEP in Bavaria, Germany at the moment - I don't think nachos are going to be readily available. So I will manage with these homemade Confetti Choco Tacos.
If you have never heard of a Choco Taco, they can be found at most Grocery Stores. They are a sweet taco shell stuffed with ice cream and dipped in chocolate. They are pretty amazing, and today we made them ever better by adding sprinkles!

- 1 cup flour
- 4 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons milk

- Use a tong to take flat waffle off the heat.
- Place it onto parchment paper and place a mason jar top in the middle. Lay the jar top to one side.
- Use the tong to fold the waffle over onto the mason jar top to form a taco. Use tongs to gently squeeze them together. Hold for 1 minute and then set aside to cool.
for the filling:
- Set the ice cream out to soften.
- Use a spoon to pack ice cream all the way to the edge of the cooled taco shell.
- Smooth the ice cream with the back of the spoon.
