These sweet, crispy taco shells are a great place to start for dessert, as they're fun to make and exceptionally fun to fill. Bake a batch up for a sweet treat taco bar, then let your creativity fly to make your own custom fillings. If you need a few ideas to get started, we opted to personalize our shells to create Caramel Apple Dessert Tacos, Nutella and Red Berry Dessert Tacos, and Tropical Dessert Tacos--and were super pleased with all three.

  • Stir together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Brush melted butter evenly on both sides of tortillas, and sprinkle both sides evenly with sugar mixture. Drape 2 tortillas over each foil roll, so that they form a taco shell shape.

  • Bake tortillas in preheated oven until tortillas hold their shape and are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Transfer shells to a wire rack, and cool completely.
