  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 40 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Combine sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
  3. Brush both sides of flour tortilla pieces with melted butter; sprinkle each with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Gently fit each tortilla piece into a prepared muffin cup, shaping the tortilla to make a shell.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tortilla shells are golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Beat milk, cream cheese, and pudding mix in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth; fold in whipped topping. Fill each tortilla shell with about 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and top each with a maraschino cherry.

I made this for Cinco de Mayo and it was awesome! Everyone I served it to loved, loved it! Easy and fun to prepare. I would say though that this should be consumed the first day, the next day...

I found making the cups to be very time-consuming, so I cut the recipe in half, baked tortilla chips instead of cups & served them on the side with fresh strawberries. Everyone loved it!

This was a tasty creative dish. The family was impressed and went for seconds. I halved the recipe because 40 was too much for us. I also did not add the cherries but think it was just as good. ...
