Ice Cream Nachos: An Unproven Recipe for a Live Show

In summary, the conversation is about making a dessert called "Ice Cream Nachos" for a show tomorrow night. The recipe includes flour tortillas, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla ice cream, bananas, strawberries, pineapple, nuts, chocolate, cool whip, hot fudge, and caramel sauce. The steps involve baking the tortilla chips, preparing the fruits, toasting the nuts, melting the hot fudge and caramel, and assembling the final dish. It can also be served as a "nacho sundae" where everyone can build their own.

Hi there! Congrats on trying out a new recipe at your show tomorrow night! I totally understand the time crunch and not being able to test it out beforehand. Here are a few tips that might help:- Make sure to have all your ingredients and tools prepped and ready before the show starts. This will save you time and make the process smoother.
- If possible, try to have a practice run at home tonight. This will give you a chance to troubleshoot any issues and make any necessary adjustments.
- Don't be afraid to ask for help from your host or guests during the show. They can assist with assembling or passing out the nachos, freeing up some of your time.
- Have fun with it! Even if it doesn't turn out perfectly, your guests will appreciate the effort and the opportunity to try something new.
- And lastly, remember to always follow food safety guidelines, especially when working with ice cream. Keep it chilled until ready to serve and discard any leftovers.Good luck with your show tomorrow night! I'm sure your guests will love the ice cream nachos. Let us know how it goes!
