Please click here to find out more about Free Comic Book Day events in your area. Comics are a great way to get kids to read and most stores try to make it a family friendly event. We go hog wild, so if you are in the area, or even if it's a bit of a drive, I would love to see you at our Free Comic Book Day celebration. There will be pinatas! Darth Vader! And Spider-Man!
Quick Sopaipillas with Chocolate Sauce
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 4 8-to-10-inch flour tortillas, cut into wedges or strips
- 1 tbs sugar
- 1 teas cinnamon
- Chocolate syrup
Heat ½ inch vegetable oil in a large deep skillet until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees F. Working in batches, fry the tortillas, turning once, until bubbly and golden on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes per batch. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool and drain excess oil.
Toss the cinnamon and sugar into a paper bag. Shake to mix, add a few of the fried tortillas at a time and shake to coat. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and serve.
