Easy snacks are the best, and they are a must have for any on-the-go family. And, since we love chocolate chips… this recipe just kind of fell together.
My daughter has been begging me to make pinwheels. So, I decided to grant her request. Pinwheels. Only different. These are sorta similar to the Easy Cream Cheese Roll-Ups I made a few weeks ago, but even better in my opinion. I mean: they have chocolate chips. Chocolate. Chips.
And you know I love chocolate chips… hence the Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies I made the other day.
Ready to whip these together? Start with cream cheese and powdered sugar and mix them together really good. I didn’t even soften the cream cheese. Add chocolate chips.
Moving on to the next step, its time to spread the cream cheese mixture onto the tortillas. Spread thick, you can use just 4 tortillas. If you want to make the pinwheels a little thinner, you could use 6 soft taco tortillas instead.
Next, roll up the tortillas as tight as you can.
After that, toss the pinwheel rolls in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate for a few hours. They are much easier to slice when they are cold. I went ahead and sliced one off so I wouldn’t have to wait to take a picture. And so I could have a little snack. You know how it goes.Print
