Easy Wriggly Monster Dessert Tortilla Wraps for Kids

Lil Pumpkin and I had some fun making these Wriggly Monster Nutella & Fruits Dessert Tortilla Wraps together on Monday. So simple to prepare and the little ones will surely love this delicious, sweet treat!

I love eating tortilla wraps. They are soooo easy to prepare with endless stuffing possibilities but my fave version is a healthy wrap of wild rockets, smoked salmon, capers, onions and a dash of sour cream (*^▽^*)

I was looking through our old Japan photos and craving for some of those yummy Harajuku dessert crêpes though when boom! I had this idea to use the ready-made tortilla wraps we had at home as "crêpes" and prepare our own dessert crêpes or wraps! Woohoo... no messy cooking of fresh crêpes required and can't believe I never thought of this earlier.

After I had prepared the ingredients, Lil Pumpkin helped me to put it all together. She loves helping me in the kitchen and this playful dish was definitely easy enough for her to handle.

Prep time:
20 mins

3 pieces Mission Original Wraps 8"
2-3 medium strawberries
1 giant strawberry
1 medium banana
4 tbsp Nuttella chocolate spread
1/2 cup Synder pretzel sticks
2 chocolate chips
1 Tic Tac

  1. Slice the strawberries and banana. 
  2. Break the pretzel sticks into shorter sticks {about 2cm}. 
  3. Stick 2 pretzel sticks into the giant strawberry as feelers, and arrange the chocolate chips as eyes and Tic Tac as mouth. Leave the leaves on as hair.
  4. Warm the wraps in the microwave for 20s. You can also warm them in a dry {no oil} pan over medium heat for 30s. Wraps are easier to roll after heating since they are softer and more pliable.
  5. Spread 2 tbsp of Nuttella over each wrap.
  6. Line the fruits slightly below the center of the wrap. Be careful not to add too much and overfill. 
  7. Roll the wrap by folding in the sides, then holding the sides down while bringing up the bottom and rolling it closed as tightly as you can.
  8. Cut the rolled wrap into half.
  9. Arrange on the plate with the pretzel sticks as the monster's legs and giant strawberry as the monster's head.  
  10. Serve immediately.

If you want this creative snack to be even healthier, use Go-Lo Foods Sugar Free Dark Hazelnut Spread instead of Nutella.

It is 100% sugar-free, and tastes similar to Nutella, but minus all the sugar and poor ingredients. I ran out of my Go-Lo spread when I was making this treat with Lil Pumpkin but would have definitely preferred to use it.

Have a roar-some time making the Wriggly Monster Nuttella & Fruits Dessert Tortilla Wraps with your kids over the weekend or during the Children's Day holiday next Friday! I think this will be a cute addition to any Halloween parties next month too! (ノ^∇^)

P.S. Also check out this Monster Sandwich I made for Lil Pumpkin last time!

What fillings do you like to put in your wraps? 
Anything special planned to celebrate Children's Day?

Your giant strawberry is really GIGANTIC!!! Yummy caterpillar and easy to make too~

They do look really tasty. You could put any nut butter or seed butter spread on there. They'd all taste good!

Stacy said...

Heh really cute!

But I balked at buying these Mission wraps when I noticed the expiry date is very far away... a year or something. Which I presume is due to big quantities of preservatives.

You're making me hungry with these! Haha and they're more cute than spooky; still lovely for Halloween with kids! :) We love "playing" with Mission wraps too! I remember making wraps as meals for Vera when she was younger..time to revisit that versatile recipe idea again!

Theresa Mahoney said...

This is almost too cute to eat! I like the idea of using a tortilla in place of the crepe. Might be a little healthier too! I was going to say that is one big strawberry, but someone already beat me to the punch lol

Michelle said...

I knew I would like this as soon as I saw your list of ingredients - Nutella and banana! My kids would definitely like this too!

Young Smarties said...

We made this as well!! But my strawberries always got eaten up before I can take a proper picture :(
But we still have fun and is a healthy meal unless you splatter too much nutella on it xp

This is such an awesome idea! The caterpillar looks delish and very kid-friendly to eat. Think my boy would love making it but end up only eating Nutella. Lol.

Unknown said...

This looks easy enough and oh so fun! Definitely reminds me of the Nutella+banana crepes I binge on during our Paris trip 😁

Mummy C said...

This is such a great bonding activity with boy likes helping me out in the kitchen too 😄

This looks super cute and right one for Halloween snacks too. I am sure kids will enjoy preparing it.

Wow! First, I was drawn by the title -a tongue-twisting title filled with monster and dessert, eye catching! Better still are the contents within with strawberries, NUTELLA and plus relatively fuss-free to make. Thanks for sharing! Another interesting recipe for the home.

Cascia Talbert said...

That looks really good! I can tell your little one loved it. Thanks for sharing.

Grace said...

Love Mission wraps! Such the perfect alternative to making sandwiches (bread bloats me!). Wriggly monsters will be a huge hit with my boys! Thanks for sharing the recipe :)
P.S Lil Pumpkin just keeps getting bigger!!! She growing into such a beautiful young lady x
