When inspiration hits;

The idea for these festive and delicious 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.

I don’t know about you, but some of my best ideas come to me in the middle of the night when I wake from a sound sleep. It’s a good thing I’ve learned to keep a notepad and pen on my nightstand so I can write things down so I won’t forget my ideas in the morning.

If there’s one thing I’m certain of, these incredibly delicious patriotic nachos are worth remembering!

Why this dessert nacho recipe works;

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 patriotic dessert nachos for Memorial Day, and the 4th of July!  I promise you’ll hear all the “oohs” and “aahs” from your family and friends, just as if they were watching the fireworks in the night sky!

Can I make these dessert nachos ahead of time?

If needed, make the cinnamon sugar nacho chips in advance and then keep them loosely covered at room temperature for up to 2 days.

As far as topping the chips with the berries, chocolate, and coconut, I suggest you do that the same day you’re serving the nachos.

Can dessert nachos be frozen?

No. The chips won’t be crispy once thawed, and the berries will be mushy.

Additional suggested toppings for dessert nachos;

  • Chopped Nuts (your favorite variety)
  • Whipped Cream
  • M & M’s
  • Reeses Pieces
  • Gummy candy
  • Skittles

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!
