This recipe idea for these festive and patriotic red, white, & blue dessert nachos came to me one night while I was laying in bed after waking from a sound sleep. While I was patiently waiting for the sandman to come and whisk me back off to dreamland, I had a lightbulb moment.
Some of my best ideas come to me in the middle of the night, so it’s a good thing that I’ve learned to keep a notepad and pen on my nightstand so I can write things down when I think of them so I won’t forget my ideas in the morning, and if there’s one thing I’m certain of, these Patriotic Red, White, & Blue Dessert Nachos with Cinnamon Sugar are worth remembering!
My favorite thing about these dessert nachos may be the homemade cinnamon sugar tortilla chips that are so, so easy to make and taste just like cinnamon toast crunch cereal. Of course, the white chocolate drizzle and fresh raspberries and blueberries don’t hurt either. Not to mention the sweetened flaked coconut which tops these yummy nachos to perfection.
Serve these Red, White & Blue Dessert Nachos for Memorial Day and the 4th of July, and I promise you’ll hear all the “oohs” and “aahs” from your family and friends, just as if they were watching fireworks in the night sky!
Making Red, White, & Blue Dessert Nachos is easy and quick. Let me show you how;
- Place a rack in a baking sheet that has been lined aluminum foil or parchment paper.
- Lay 6 flour tortillas on the rack and spray each side liberally with coconut oil spray.
- Use a pair of kitchen shears to cut each tortilla into 6 triangle chips.
- Lay the triangles evenly on the rack and bake them in a preheated 425-degree oven until the chips are crisp and golden.
- Remove the chips from the oven and spray them once again with additional coconut oil spray.
- Sprinkle each chip liberally with granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.
- Pile the chips onto a serving platter.
- Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave on medium power until melted.
- Drizzle the chocolate liberally over the chips and immediately add the berries over top.
- Top the chips with the berries and drizzle again with remaining melted chocolate.
- Top with the flaked coconut.
- Serve and ENJOY!

Since summertime is also picnic season, I’ve decided to coordinate this recipe with this fun set of hand-painted Picnic Ants champagne flutes and wine glasses that a customer ordered from me last year. I only wish I knew what they were going to do with all these ants, because I’ll bet it was one heck of a party!
