Whether you chose to give out chocolate or take small people trick-or-treating, you will no doubt find yourself in possession of some amount of Halloween chocolate on November 1. You could shovel it into your mouth mindlessly, dole out a piece each day and make it last until Christmas (my mum’s favourite), or you could take a page out of Taco Bell’s menu and fry it in a flour tortilla.

Even if this sweet quesadilla were available in Australia, you wouldn’t get the variety of flavours and textures you’ll achieve with a homemade version, as Taco Bell’s only comes in Kit Kat and (in some locations) Twix varieties.
To make this delicious, chocolatey, only slightly painful leftover sweet treat, you will need:
- Chocolates, obviously
- Nutella, to help keep the lollies in place as they melts
- 1 flour tortilla
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- Maldon salt (Trust me on this.)
Gather your chocolate, unwrap it, and chop it into uniform pieces. If you have round chocolate to contend with – such as Maltesers – just leave them in their packaging and whack them with a heavy object.
Spread a little Nutella on half of a flour tortilla, then arrange your chocolate in a single, somewhat flat layer.
Sprinkle some fancy, flaky salt on top to help offset all the sugar, then slice it into triangles and enjoy it with a tall, very cold glass of milk.
