In the US, Cinco De Mayo tends to be centered around drinking. But because I don't drink, I have had to find other ways to celebrate. In the past, this has usually consisted of eating an inappropriate amount of nachos. I LOVE NACHOS.

If you have never heard of a Choco Taco, they can be found at most Grocery Stores. They are a sweet taco shell stuffed with ice cream and dipped in chocolate. They are pretty amazing, and today we made them ever better by adding sprinkles!

You will need a Waffle Cone Maker in order to make these, but they are not that expensive (I got mine for under $30 HERE). And I believe they are worth the investment. Happy Cinco De Mayo! Eat some nachos for me!

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.
