Dessert tacos may not be as popular as those with beef and cheese, but I think you’ll be hooked after one bite. They’re fruity, sweet, and ideal for parties.
There’s something so fun and casual about tacos, so why not make dessert just as cool?
Loaded with everything from strawberries and chocolate to marshmallows and cheesecake, these dessert tacos are crazy-indulgent and super kid-friendly.
Serve a platter of these at your next party, and get ready to feel the love.
1. Churro Dessert Tacos with Strawberries and Cream
These tacos are basically taco-shaped churros, so they’re crunchy and smothered in cinnamon sugar.
That alone makes them a tasty dessert, but you’ll take them a step further.
You’ll fill each shell with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. The sweet, silky whipped cream against the crispy churros? Heavenly.
Feel free to add a little chocolate sauce, caramel, or honey too.
2. Strawberry Cheesecake Tacos
Strawberry cheesecake is a classic dessert, but sometimes, you get bored of having the same old thing.
So, why not flip it on its head and make these sinful strawberry cheesecake tacos instead.
They have the same fantastic sweet and tangy flavor but with a fun new presentation.
And don’t let the tortillas throw you off. You won’t really taste them beneath the buttery Graham Cracker crust.
3. Blueberry Cheesecake Tacos
Blueberry cheesecake tacos are similar to the ones above. They have the same tart and tangy sweetness but are overflowing with berries.
Also, they use a brown sugar, sopapilla-like shell instead of a Graham Cracker crust. Fortunately, both are equally delectable.
4. Mini Choco Tacos
Most people are familiar with Choco Tacos, but did you know you could make them yourself at home?
It’s soooooo simple, and you’ll only need three ingredients: waffle cone batter, ice cream (or frozen custard), and chocolate chips.
Whip up the crunchy, delicious waffle cones, then fill them with ice cream.
After that, dip them in the melted chocolate and let them cool. The whole process takes practically no time at all.
Plus, they’re mini, so you can eat more than one without feeling guilty.
5. Homemade Choco Taco
You can never have too many Choco Taco recipes, so here’s one more.
Spoiler alert: it won’t be the last one on this list.
These are full-size Choco Tacos, and they’re even more chocolatey than the mini ones above. If you’re a genuine chocoholic, you’ll appreciate this recipe.
6. Grilled S’mores Tacos
Here’s another simple, four-ingredient dessert that’ll get your taste buds grooving.
Grilled s’more tacos are sweet, chocolatey, and utterly gooey. Better still, they need just five minutes and a grill!
There are Graham Crackers inside the tortillas, so you get the most s’more goodness as possible.
Plus, the soft tortilla adds another level of yumminess – it’s like biting into a warm, sweet cloud.
Oh, and they’re far less messy than traditional s’mores.
7. Chocolate Dessert Tacos
Chocolate dessert tacos are entirely over the top. And the kids will love them for precisely that reason.
They’re insanely chocolatey, and the indulgent filling adds to the sweetness.
These are an excellent option for a dessert taco bar – just lay out the chocolate shells and whatever ice cream flavors and toppings you like best.
That way, people can customize their tacos with their favorite sweet treats.
8. Ice Cream Tacos
Surprisingly, frozen waffles make ideal dessert taco shells. They’re thick and fluffy with just enough crunch to add texture.
This recipe calls for five simple ingredients, including vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, maraschino cherries, whipped cream, and sprinkles.
Pretty classic, huh?
That said, you can get as creative as you like with the fillings, and like the chocolate tacos above, they’re perfect for a sweet taco bar.
9. Chocolate Tacos with Strawberry
These rich, decadent tacos are some of my all-time favorites.
The thin, crunchy chocolate lace cookies are almost like crepes, and you’ll fill them with only the most delicious ingredients.
Two types of ice cream, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce make for something pretty sinful – but you won’t stop there!
Top them with sweet and zesty macerated berries for even more of a treat. I’m drooling just thinking about them.
10. Coconut Choco Tacos
Coconut and chocolate are a match made in heaven. I love the light sweetness of the coconut against the rich, almost bitter chocolate.
They also taste pretty great in a cinnamon and brown sugar-covered taco shell.
If you’re looking for a sweet summer treat, these are a fantastic option. Tropical, chocolatey, and the kids will love them.
11. Piña Colada Tacos
These, on the other hand, are for the adults.
There is no alcohol in them, so kids can have them. But the grown-ups will appreciate their tropical taste way more.
They have plenty of coconut and pineapple flavor, and the maraschino cherries, cinnamon, and sugar are just extra sweetness.
12. Brown Butter Crepe Ice Cream Tacos
Brown butter crepe ice cream tacos…there’s so much deliciousness in those few words.
Each taco contains butter, chocolate, ice cream, and other yummy stuff.
They’re a bit messy, and you might have a lot of chocolate to lick off your fingers. But they are totally worth the hassle.
13. Fresh Berry Tacos Recipe
As dessert-like and delicious as these are, they aren’t that bad for you.
They’re a bit high in carbs, but their fat and calorie counts aren’t terrible – especially when compared to some others on this list.
They’re full of berry-bright flavor and require only 10 minutes to make.
You don’t have to do any cooking with them either. They’re fresh, refreshing, and perfect for summer.
14. Paleo Dessert Taco with Mexican Vanilla Ice Cream
Choco Tacos are scrumptious. We all know that. But what if you want something healthier?
Well, that’s where these paleo-friendly-and-not-quite-Choco-Tacos come in.
They’re sweet but not too sweet. It’s that delightful, clean sweetness that you only get from eating naturally.
And believe it or not, the plantains make a surprisingly effective “taco shell.”
If you’re looking for a way to indulge without ruining your diet, give these a try.
15. Pumpkin Spice Dessert Tacos
In the mood for a festive fall treat? If so, these pumpkin spice dessert tacos are just the thing.
They are overwhelmingly pumpkiny and smell as fantastic as they taste.
The cinnamon and toasted pecans add spice and crunch, while the cream cheese icing cuts into the sweetness with a bit of tanginess.
Serve them with a hot mug of apple cider for the full fall effect.
16. 4-Ingredient Nutella Choco Tacos
These four-ingredient desserts are like Choco Tacos, only with Nutella!
And yes, it makes them even better than the original. (Then again, Nutella makes everything taste great.)
You won’t have to do any cooking with these, either. There’s just some microwaving, assembling, and freezing.
They’re unbelievably simple to make. Just give yourself plenty of time, as they take about three hours to freeze fully.
17. Bubble Waffle Banana Split Tacos
Have you ever watched Wreck-It Ralph? If you have, then this taco dessert won’t look unfamiliar to you.
It looks just like something you’d find in the Sugar Rush Land.
It’s colorful, festive, and just plain fun and exciting. Fortunately, there’s more to it than how it looks.
It also tastes phenomenal.
It’s fruity, sweet, and entirely decadent. So if you want to treat your kids (or yourself!) to something fabulous, this recipe is the one to make.
18. Apple Pie Cheesecake Tacos
These indulgent treats are a triple threat: they’re apple pie, cheesecake, and churros all rolled into one.
The baked tortilla shells are exceptionally sweet and crunchy, and the cheesecake filling is light, bright, and zesty.
Oh, and the apple pie filling is unbelievably comforting and heartwarming. What’s not to love about that?
19. Banana Pudding Tacos
Southern-style banana pudding has always been close to my heart. My gramma made it for me every spring.
Of course, my banana pudding could never be as good as hers. So, to avoid that disappointment, I make banana pudding tacos instead.
You’ll love the mildly sweet banana flavor and the silky smooth pudding filling. The underlying notes of vanilla and the whipped cream aren’t bad either.
20. Peanut Butter and Jelly Tacos
This is your classic PB&J. The only difference is that it has a fun taco shape and a bright berry topping.
It’s the easiest way to keep an old-fashioned, entirely comforting PB&J exciting and fun.
21. Crispy Sopapilla Dessert Tacos with Ice Cream and Berries
Sopapillas are crunchy, airy, and covered in sweet deliciousness. Typically, people top them with honey, berries, or ice cream.
In this case, you’ll shape them like tacos and fill them with all three!
They’re gorgeous and flavorful. And the berries add just enough tartness to keep them from being overly sweet.
22. Tuile Cookie Dessert Tacos
I think it’s the mascarpone in these that makes me think of cannolis rather than cookies.
They’re both delectable dessert options, of course, but these dessert tacos are crispier and have much thinner shells.
Thanks to the berries and chocolate sauce, they also have a lot more flavor. Still, if you like cannoli, you’ll probably like these, too.
23. Fruit Tacos
Fruit tacos are a tart and tangy, super fruity delight. (And don’t worry; the cinnamon, sugar, and honey add plenty of sweetness, too.)
You’ll fill them with strawberries, mango slices, kiwi, and blueberries. It gives them a somewhat tropical vibe.
And of course, those particular fruits are just a suggestion. Add any of your favorites to suit your tastes.
24. Mini Cherry Cheesecake Tacos
If you like Cherry-O Cream Cheese Pie, you’ll love these tacos. They taste precisely like that but with a crunchier, more cinnamony crust.
These bite-sized morsels are so good that you will not be able to eat just one. It’ll take at least three or four before you can bring yourself to stop.
25. Mango Shrikhand Taco
These fruit-filled tacos combine all your favorite tastes: they’re fruity, salty, sweet, spicy, and more.
They’re also crisp and refreshing, and the chili powder gives them a bite.
These are the perfect dessert tacos for sitting on the beach or hosting a summer luau.
