I love the holidays and all the great food and recipes that come with it.
I'm a big fan of trying new desserts. And although ice cream on a cold day may not sound all that warming, you're in for a surprise when you try Chef Ray's Hudsonville Creamy Cappuccino Dessert Nacho. A perfect ending to any meal. And if you haven't had the privilege of trying any of Sweet Lorraine's Mac 'n Cheez! I have a couple simple, warm and delicious recipes to share with you.
Start your day with a Breakfast Mac 'n Cheez! and end it with a Winter White Pasta Dessert. They both say Cheez! and will leave your family saying Pleaze!

Chef Ray’s Creamy Cappuccino Dessert Nachos

Here is what you’ll need:
4 Flour Tortillas
2 tbsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon
3 scoops of Hudsonville® Creamy Cappuccino Ice Cream
4-5 tbsp. of Hot Fudge Topping 
Whipped Cream
2-3 Strawberries, diced

Preheat your oven to 400F
Cut your tortillas into triangles, place them on a lightly oiled cookie tray and lightly spray the tops of the tortillas as well. (Canola oil spray is recommended)
Combine the sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle on top of the oiled tortilla triangles. Flip them over and repeat on the other side.
Bake for about 5 minutes on each side or until crispy.
Remove and let cool
Arrange on a large plate, top it with scoops of Hudsonville® Creamy Cappuccino Ice Cream, drizzle with hot fudge, whipped cream, and diced strawberries.
