dessert tacos

Get in the Cinco de Mayo mood with dessert tacos! Here’s how to whip them up…

These are the cutest dessert tacos we’ve ever seen!

Here’s your friendly reminder, Cinco de Mayo is this Sunday! We’re leaning into this holiday with a not-so-authentic idea: dessert tacos. Filled with everything sweet, they’re the perfect way to finish off your fiesta.

Sweet Tooth Fairy Megan Faulkner Brown shared how to pull off a dessert taco bar with all the fixin’s.


Dessert Taco Bar

For the Taco Shell


  • Muffin Tin
  • Pack of Flour Tortillas
  • Butter
  • Crushed Graham Crackers


  1. Grab a pack of cooked tortillas. Using a circle cookie cutter, punch out smaller circles using the circumference of the tortilla.
  2. Turn muffin tin upside down. Brush the cut-out tortilla circles in butter, and then coat in crushed graham crackers. If graham crackers aren’t your jam, try cinnamon and sugar.
  3. Place taco shell in between the upside-down cups of the muffin tin. This will help to create a taco-shell shape. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your shell.
  4. For an extra chocolate-y crunch, dip your tortilla shell in Sweet Tooth Fairy Meltables and sprinkles, found here.
