Churros are a fried dough snack that’s enjoyed in Mexico and various parts of the world like Spain, France and the Phillipines. The dough is fried until it becomes crunchy and then it’s sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. And if that’s not enough yumminess for you, dip them in chocolate! They are seriously delicious. My recipe below has it all the chocolate, the cinnamon and sugar, except it’s easier to make.
We had the joy of spending our Christmas break in Mexico with family! There were churros beings sold everywhere and some are even stuffed with a fruit or chocolate cream. I brought back the fun Talavera Mexican bowl from Puebla. It’s art on ceramics and it’s beautiful.
I was missing my churros, so I had to make my snack version of churro’s to get me through my cravings. I used Quaker® Oatmeal Squares but you can also use my favorite–Quaker® Life cereal. I pretty much survived my college years on Life cereal, I ate it for breakfast, I used it as an ice cream topping and I also enjoyed them dry for a snack. Don’t worry, now as an adult and mom I’ve incorporated other foods into my meals. But it’s a delicious and wholesome cereal that I still enjoy in various ways.

So easy and so yummy!
