I love tortilla cups! If you haven’t noticed, it all started with these Tortilla Cups, then I created the Pumpkin Mousse Tortilla Cups, that lead to the Andes Mint Tortilla Cups and then Andes Peppermint Crunch Tortilla Cups. I love them!! Last year around the 4th of July I made them and forgot to take pictures… so I was knew I wanted to make them again this year! You could if you want, drizzle red or blue melted candy melt over them for an extra fun touch, but I opted not to this time around. I’ve been loving my Bosch for whipping up fresh whipped cream. For a minute there I had fresh whipped cream coming out of my ears.

You’ll find the fresh whipped cream in my Red White & Blue Strawberry Blueberry Dessert Parfaits, Red White & Blue Cherry Blueberry Shortcakes and Red White & Blue Strawberry Blueberry Sugar Cookie Cups with Coconut Cream Cheese Filling! All of them are fantastic for your holiday get together or BBQ! I can tell you from experience these little babies are a crowd pleaser! Everyone will be impressed, and I can guarantee you won’t have any leftovers!

    Going to do these for a graduation party. Did a run through and decided to just use 1 of quarters of the tortilla and follow rest as directed . The 2 pieces did not always stay together and it will make it small enough for a nice little bite. There is also no way you can add 3 tblsp. Of the topping. That’s a lot and you wouldn’t have enough with the amount made. My granddaughter and other taste testers loved them.

      Hi Dianne, it sounds like you did a great job making the recipe work for you and I’m so happy to hear that the tortilla cups were a hit among your granddaughter and other taste testers! Thanks for letting me know.

      Oh most certainly! I still need to try that whipped cream, I should make some! These would be a fun treat for the office party!
