Here is why I like the Choco Taco:

  1. Its name rhymes.
  2. It’s wildly messy to eat, so it’s a good test: If you have fun with it and laugh and genuinely enjoy making a fool out of yourself, you’re in good shape. If you get frustrated because your hands are sticky and you’re bothered by the fact that eating ice cream from a taco shell cone makes little sense, you’re due for a yoga class.
  3. It’s a way to enjoy a homemade ice cream cone without having to buy a cone mold or a waffle iron. You just need some simple ingredients and books. (Hopefully you have books.)

This is the perfect dessert for a taco party. You can make the shells a day in advance and have guests fill their own; you can make the shells during the party and have your kitchen smell like an ice cream parlor; or you can make them entirely in advance and keep them in the freezer.

Original Choco Tacos are filled with fudge-swirled vanilla ice cream and topped with chocolate and peanuts. But it’s your taco party and you can do what you want: Use any kind of ice cream and top it with whatever nuts, sprinkles, or other toppings your taco-loving heart desires. Just don’t forget the napkins!
