This recipe for simple, fruity Dessert Nachos was the victim of a chocolate assault.  Before I knew what was happening, mini chocolate chips and a stream of fudgey chocolate syrup were everywhere.  

What could I do??? I ate the whole thing.

What will YOU do? ;-D

Ambrosia Ingredients and preparation:
  • 1- 8 oz. Tub of Cool Whip- defrosted in refrigerator
  • 1 cup fresh Strawberries- sliced
  • 1- 15 oz can of Fruit Cocktail- drained
  • 1- 11 oz can Mandarin Oranges- drained
  • 1- cup shredded Coconut
  • 1/2 c Mini Marshmallows
  • a pinch of Ground Nutmeg
  • a pinch of Cinnamon
In a medium bowl, fold the Cinnamon and nutmeg into the Cool Whip topping. Fold in the remaining ingredients, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Ambrosia Topping (Chocolate is optional):

  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Chocolate Syrup
Cinnamon Tortilla Chips:
  • Store-bought Corn Tortilla Chips

    Sounds yummy!

    I'd recommend using flour tortillas, covered in cinnamon+sugar+butter spread, then baked to a crisp... flour is healthier (and IMO better tasting) than corn!
