Chocolate-Rasberry Burritos

Note, the above picture is of chocolate banana burritos but imagine the same thing with chocolate and raspberries for the below recipe. Remember, we ate ours before we thought to take a picture so use your imagination!

Because there were several requests for this, I am posting the dessert recipe Philip made for me on our camping/farm getaway. This recipe is from the Better Homes & Gardens Biggest Book of Grilling.

Chocolate-Raspberry Burritos

4 8-9" flour tortillas
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup fresh raspberries
2 T. butter, melted (it must be butter, not margarine)
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
4 T. sweetened cream cheese (just soften and add a little powdered sugar)

Stack the tortillas and wrap in a piece of heavy foil. For a charcoal grill (i.e., real man's grill), grill foil packet on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-low coals about 5 minutes or until tortillas are warm and pliable, turning packet once. Or simply wrap tortillas in paper towels and microwave for 20-40 seconds (that's what we did).

Sprinkle 1/4 cup each of the chocolate chips and raspberries in the center of each tortilla; fold in sides and roll up. Brush burritos with half of the melted butter. Grill burritos over medium-low coals about 3 minutes or until the tortillas begin to show grill marks and the chocolate is melted. turning once. For a gas grill, preheat grill, Reduce heat to medium-low. Place foil packet, then burritos on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as stated above.

Transfer burritos to a serving platter. Brush burritos with remaining melted butter. In a small bowl combine the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the burritos. Serve immediately with sweetened cream cheese on side as a dip. (or just put a tablespoon of the cream cheese inside each burrito prior to grilling).
