Coconut Pecan Chocolate Quesadillas

Oh sweet chocolate madness!  I don’t think there is any more suitable way to end the weekend without a bit of chocolate.

Don’t you agree?

A nibble, a bite or even a spoonful of silky sweet chocolate makes the bitter end of the weekend bearable.

We’re not a Monday loving family.  Who is?

The family had been requesting quesadillas since Tuesday, but I turned a deaf ear.  Everyone once in awhile I do this, it’s my small way of rebelling.  Doesn’t happen much.

The weekend came, we set about our business and I heard the same request.

Niños tercos (stubborn kids)

Sunday evening came; dinner plates were being cleared, the table was getting a much needed scrubbing when I decided we could all use a Chocolate treat.

Oversized burrito sized tortillas loaded with cream cheese, shredded coconut and pecans are cooked until crispy.

Cut into wedges and dipped into warm melted chocolate, pretty cool, right?

A few more sprinkles of coconut and pecans, allow to set and BOOM!
