Cinnamon Crisps, Orange Ice Cream & Chocolate Sauce

Hello blog family, so my offering for our 7th day of Christmas is this really easy cinnamon crisps and orange ice cream dessert with chocolate sauce. What I love about this dessert is the way that you get a mixture of textures and tastes; crispy, soft, creamy, cold and warm. By the way, the addition of orange zest and orange slices to this dessert takes it up another level of delicious.  20161219_232740-min

If you don’t have tortillas, your favorite bread slices will do, just cut them into thin strips before frying in the pan.

Have a beautiful week and look forward to our 8th dessert. We are 5 days away from Christmas!!!
