I don’t know what has taken me so long to finally make these! I love Churros! My first taste of Churros was not at Disney, it was on my honeymoon in Madrid, Spain. I can’t even tell you how many times we stopped at this little café famous for it’s Churros and hot chocolate dip! Here’s a picture of us from one of our many stops there.
This recipe is so easy to make. The only problem I had was using the piping bag, and that was my own fault. I would recommend not filling it too much as it makes it too hard to push down through the tip. I found it to be easier and faster by putting less of the filling in the bag. Okay, let’s get to the recipe!

In my YouTube video, I told you I would have Alex try one when he got home from school. I’m sorry to say, my poor boys didn’t get to try one! My husband ate all of them. I will be making these again and hopefully, keep them away from my husband this time.
