From the Test Kitchen

We're turning one of our favorite savory dishes into an irresistibly sweet treat! Flour tortillas are filled with chocolate chips, then cooked in butter until golden brown and the chocolate is melted. They're finished with a dusting of spiced sugar and a dipping sauce inspired by classic cannoli cream, which features ricotta, mascarpone, and more.
