My Tortilla Snowflakes won first place in the Tortilla Land Tortilla Art contest! Check out my entry!
My art/snack that I made when my kids were little has paid off!
All you do is fold up a tortilla into six parts or eight parts, just like you would if you were making a round paper snowflake. Then, you cut little squares, triangles and circles around the folds to make a snowflake. Then, unfold and toast your snowflake in a large skillet over medium low heat - turning frequently until fully crisp and toasty.
Next, brush on some melted chocolate OR some heated Nutella (my preference) with a pastry brush. While the chocolate is still warm, sprinkle on some powdered sugar and - Voila! - edible art to impress your friends and neighbors!
The above photo is our submission for the contest sponsored by Tortilla Land "The Art of the Fresh Tortilla".

OMG, you're creative. What a BIG impact from a simple procedure - sure to impress guests as mini snowflakes (small-sized tortillas) accompanying a martini glass of chile-mango granita.
Congrats on the win!
Seattle Dee - I am thinking YOU are the creative one!

WOW! How creative!!! Congrats on winning. I would have never thought of this cute idea. I am totally going to impress somebody with it one of these days. I eat those same tortillas too.
Thanks for stopping by my blog too! I'm glad I found yours. My southwestern cooking needs some major improvement!!
