Dessert Quesadillas

Oh my goodnesssssss.

Can we all just take minute and stare at this picture…
I need this. Right now. 
But first I need to tell you all about it so you can make it for yourself and understand what I experienced last night. This is what we like to call a dessert quesadilla. I based my recipe off of the talented and amazing Mrs. How Sweet. She really does come up with the most mouth-watering concoctions in the world.
I had just finished dinner last night and was scanning all of my bookmarked recipes for a quick dessert to finish off my day. I read through this recipe, realizing it was perfect because I had one last tortilla I needed to use. 
As I pulled out the peanut butter and chocolate chips, I found the remaining mini marshmallows from these and thought they would be the perfect addition to my quesadilla. 
A satisfying dessert is what I needed last night and a more-than-satisfying dessert is what I got. I will definitely be making these again and again. It only took a few minutes and is easily adjustable to make however much you need. 
Please do yourself a favor and make this for dessert tonight. Actually, let’s just have one for breakfast right now. I can’t wait all day. 
Dessert Quesadillas
(Adapted from How Sweet It Is)
Makes 1 quesadilla (cut into 2-4 wedges)
1 8-inch tortilla (I used whole wheat)
1/2 tablespoon butter or margarine 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup mini marshmallows
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
1/4 cup whipped cream
1. Heat skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. 
2. Spread butter onto one side of the tortilla and sprinkle cinnamon overtop. Place the tortilla butter-side down on skillet.
3. Cook tortilla for about two minutes until it is lightly crisped. Remove from heat.
4. Spread half of the open-faced tortilla with peanut butter. Spread marshmallows and chocolate chips evenly across the peanut butter half of the tortilla. Fold the empty half of the tortilla overtop of itself and lightly press with spatula.
5. Slice quesadilla into wedges, top with whipped cream, sprinkle with more cinnamon, and serve warm.

  1. DEFINITELY doable with nutella and ice cream! So funny you say that because I actually stared at the Nutella while I pulled out the PB and thought maybe I should use that instead, but decided to stick closer to the original recipe this time. Nutella and banana slices topped with ice cream…..I will try that next time!
