Chocolate ice cream wraps

When I went on my little excursion to AZ, we visited my favorite shop there called The Orange Patch. I think I love about every store that ends in "patch". :) Just a cool word!
We noticed some chocolate wraps and thought what would you use those for?! The awesome owner shared an idea, making us very eager to get back and try it out. We cleaned them out of their last 2 packages... I sorta felt bad for the lady behind us who was eyeing them also, but not bad enough to give them up :) It's not like I can go there everyday.

mmmmm Yum, right!
What you need:
* Chocolate wraps (recipe at bottom)
Ice Cream (your choice of flavor)
Whip cream/cool whip
Fudge/caramel sauce
Strawberries

Thaw ice cream. Smother ice cream on wraps
Roll up, wrap the wrap in saran wrap....HA :)
Put in freezer for a couple of hours til set up.

Slice the rolls, top with fudge sauce, whip cream and strawberries. Better yet, skip the whole cutting part and eat the whole thing yourself! ;) FYI, do more than one wrap, trust me, one is not enough!

I don't know where you can buy chocolate wraps around here (bummer!) so I found a recipe you can use to make your own!

* Chocolate Tortilla

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa (get high quality cocoa like Ghiradelli)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut, melted (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 dash salt

  • Combine ingredients until smooth.
  • Cover and store in refrigerator for 2 hours.

  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Pour 1/4 cup tortilla mixture in center of pan and tilt to spread batter into a circle.
  • Let cook for 2 minutes then flip to cook other side for another 1-2 minutes.(Be careful not to burn or else the tortilla will be too stiff for folding.).
  • Let cool to prevent ice cream from melting during assembly.
