First, take a tortilla and cut hearts out of it with a pair of kitchen shears. If your young one is helping, they can use safety scissors too. Tortillas are pretty easy to cut through.

  1. I’ve made these before. While they were still warm I topped it with vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, caramel and whipped cream. It was really good!
