Ingredient List

“Get ready for a sweet and decadent treat with these chocolate chip dulce de leche nachos!”

Before we begin, these are the ingredients you’ll need:

Flour Tortillas

One package of flour tortillas.

Dulce de Leche

You will need 1 can (14 oz) of dulce de leche. Make sure to get the traditional, creamy one and not the spreadable type.

Chocolate Chips

1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips, preferably semisweet to balance the sweetness of dulce de leche.

Cinnamon Sugar

For sweetness and spice, we’ll need cinnamon sugar. You’ll only need 1/4 cup of light brown sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.


Aside from its flavour, butter is used to help stick the cinnamon sugar on the tortilla. You’ll need to melt 8 tablespoons or a whole stick of unsalted butter, divided into half.

Oats and Flour

These two dry ingredients give a nice texture and crunchy hits on our dessert nachos. You’ll need to combine 1 1/2 cups quick oats and 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats, plus 1/2 cup flour.

Hot Fudge Sauce

To make our dessert nachos extra indulgent, we’re adding some Hot fudge sauce. Make this by combining 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup dulce de leche in a microwavable bowl. Microwave for thirty seconds until melted and stir until smooth.


Make it your own! Consider serving it with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, or chopped nuts.

The Recipe How-To

“Indulge yourself with this delightful twist on classic nachos.”

Preheat the oven to 375°F

Before starting the recipe, it is important to preheat the oven to ensure that it reaches the correct temperature by the time the dessert nachos are ready for baking.

Combine Oats, Flour, Brown Sugar and Cinnamon in a Bowl

In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup of old-fashioned oats, ½ cup of quick oats, 2 cups of flour, ½ cup of light brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Make sure to mix everything completely for an even distribution of ingredients.

Add Butter and Stir Evenly

Next, add one stick of melted butter and stir it evenly into the mixture until it’s fully incorporated.

Spread Flour Tortillas on Baking Sheet

Take four flour tortillas and spread a generous amount of butter on each side. Place them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or non-stick spray.

Sprinkle Cinnamon Sugar on Top

Combine ¼ cup of white sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture over the top of each tortilla. Then add a handful of chocolate chips over each tortilla in an even layer.

Bake in Oven for Roughly 10-12 Minutes

Place the baking sheet into the preheated oven and let it bake for roughly 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Drizzle Dulce De Leche Over Nachos

While still warm from the oven, drizzle a generous amount of dulce de leche over the nachos. Add hot fudge sauce and/or caramel sauce according to taste preference.

Serve Warm with Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream

Serving this dessert nachos warm is essential since they taste best right out from the oven! They can be served as is or accompanied by vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or even crumbled chocolate cookies. The possibilities are endless!

Substitutions and Variations

“These nachos are for dessert lovers who like to live on the wild side.”

Ah, the sweet taste of experimentation – this is where it gets fun! Though my chocolate chip dulce de leche nachos recipe has an irresistible flavor profile that might leave you feeling like nothing could ever top it, I encourage you to get creative and try out some of these substitutions and variations. After all, the best recipes come from adapting and adding one’s own twist.

Firstly, let’s talk about flour tortillas. While they are perfect for this recipe, you can swap them for one-pound pizza dough or regular tortilla chips. Each substitution offers its unique texture – pizza dough will give a fluffy inside and crispy outside, while tortilla chips will be crunchy all around.

Another ingredient that deserves attention is hot fudge sauce. If you don’t have time to make your own from scratch or don’t have any available at stores, feel free to use chocolate syrup or caramel sauce instead. You’ll be surprised how well they complement the other flavors.

Let’s say you want a healthier option. In this case, I suggest substituting old-fashioned oats with Quaker oats since they are less processed and have lower sugar amounts. You can also replace dark chocolate chips with milk or white chocolate ones if you prefer those types better.

Lastly, if you’re planning a party or serving a larger crowd, consider setting up a nacho bar station where guests can add their toppings on individual plates. Offer a range of choices such as pita chips, sugar pita chips, chocolate cookies and even fruits like apples and strawberries for variations on traditional dessert nachos.

Remember: there’s no hard and fast rule when it comes to cooking! Don’t be afraid to experiment with the suggested variations or come up with your combos. Let your creativity take over, and who knows – you may come up with something even better than my original recipe!

Serving and Pairing

“Satisfy your sweet tooth and your cravings for something crunchy with these chocolate chip nachos.”

As the chocolate chip dulce de leche nachos come out of the oven, they’ll have a slightly crispy consistency and an irresistible aroma. When you’re ready to serve, use a spatula to transfer the dessert nachos onto a large platter or tray.

You can top your chocolate chip dulce de leche nachos off with vanilla ice cream or cinnamon whipped cream. Alternatively, you can drizzle some chocolate syrup or fudge sauce on them for some extra decadence. They will pair splendidly with a cup of refreshing cold milk, a hot cup of coffee, or even some hot chocolate.

The dessert nachos can also be shared as an indulgent treat among friends and family. Offer up some classic plain pita chips on the side for a change in texture, or serve them alongside caramel apple nachos or churros dessert nachos to keep the Latin-inspired theme going.

Although these nachos are perfect as a standalone quick and easy dessert, if you really want to take it up a notch, try crumbling some chocolate cookies over the top before baking for an even more scrumptious indulgence. The possibilities are endless!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“A combination of two worlds in one dish: American chocolate chips and Brazilian dulce de leche.”

When it comes to enjoying these delicious chocolate chip dulce de leche dessert nachos, there are a few options for make-ahead, storing and reheating.

If you would like to make these nachos ahead of time, it is best to prepare the recipe up until the point of baking in the oven. You can assemble the nachos on a baking sheet or tray and cover them with plastic wrap or foil, then refrigerate for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to bake, simply remove from the fridge and let the nachos sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before placing them in the preheated oven.

After you’ve enjoyed these mouth-watering nachos, you may be wondering how to store them for later. If you have any leftovers (which is unlikely!), transfer them into an airtight container or resealable plastic bag and store in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

When reheating your leftovers, there are two options: microwave or oven. The microwave method is quick and easy, but the oven method will provide a fresher taste and crispier texture. For microwaving, simply place your leftover nachos onto a microwave-safe plate and heat on high in 20-30 second intervals until they reach your desired temperature.

If using an oven or toaster oven for reheating, preheat to 350°F (180°C) and bake for 5-10 minutes, depending on how crispy you prefer your nachos. Be sure to keep an eye on them while reheating to avoid burning.

Just like with any dessert, these chocolate chip dulce de leche dessert nachos are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, but with these storage and reheating recommendations, you can still savor their deliciousness at a later time!
