To get some ideas happening, why not try Chantelle Ellum aka Fat Mum Slim's incredible soft-shell dessert taco recipe!

“I know you’re going to turn your nose up, but I ate two of these in the name of research and I think I’m onto something!," Chantelle reveals. 

Here's how you can make them at home:


> 1 x 10 pack of Old El Paso soft tortillas
> 1 x 180g pack of cooking chocolate
> 1 cup of desiccated coconut
> 1 x tub of lamington ice cream (or chocolate ice cream)
>1 x 100g bag of raspberry lollies


1. Pop some small Old El Paso soft tortillas into a muffin tin (to create a bowl) and place a rolled-up ball of foil into the middle to keep it from falling in.

2. Pop it in the oven at 180C for 10 minutes. Take out and allow to cool.

3. Melt some chocolate, dip the cooled down taco bowl into the chocolate (just the edges) and then dip into some desiccated coconut. Allow to set.

4. Fill with lamington ice cream (or chocolate ice cream) top with melted chocolate, a sprinkle of coconut and some raspberry lollies. Enjoy!
