Mark, I confess when I first read the recipe I was puzzled and wished for a weight measurement instead. But here’s what I did and it turned out just fine: chopped a hunk of chocolate into approximately 1/2-inch chunks (of course some were smaller, some were larger), which I then placed into a two-cup measuring cup. When I got to the 3/4 cup line, I gave the measuring cup a shake, added a bit more chocolate and proceeded from there.
1. Don’t fill it too full (make two leaner burritos instead of one bulging one).
2. Fold up the bottom end of the tortilla before rolling the burrito; this will keep the filling tucked in so it doesn’t fall out the bottom.
3. Take half of a paper towel and wrap it tightly around the bottom half of the burrito before putting it in the paper bag. The paper towel will help keep the burrito in tact, then can be used as a napkin.
Hope that helps!
