When I head to Taco Bell, I’m usually there for something savory. We’re talking coat-your-fingers-in-orange-powder-cheesy-Doritos-Locos-tacos savory here.
But they’re testing a new dessert so brilliant in its simplicity, I can’t help but be intrigued. It’s the Chocoladilla, a quesadilla hybrid made by folding up a Kit Kat bar in a flour tortilla, then griddling it until it becomes a pocket of melted chocolate and crispy wafer cookies. It’s a pretty ingenious idea (though TBH, I think I might have invented this in college), and the price is right at just $1.
Even more intriguing? The Caramel Chocoladilla, which is filled with Twix bars. As it melts, the caramel and chocolate melt together to make for a sweet and gooey filling, bestrewn with crunchy cookie bits and all encased in tortilla for easy eating.
As with all borderline miracles, there is a catch. The Kit Kat Chocoladilla is only currently available in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the Caramel Chocoladilla is being tested in the smaller suburb of Pewaukee, Wisconsin. Of course, if you’re truly desperate, you can probably easily hack this one at home. And the possibilities are pretty endless — imagine how amazing one of these made with Snickers or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups would be!
For now, we’ll just have to sit and wait to see if the Chocoladilla will catch on and be upgraded to nationwide menu status. The good news? It was available on menus in the U.K., so there’s hope yet!
