Fried dough smothered in sugar and dipped in chocolate? Yes, please! Because my family came from Spain, I have a true love for everything Spanish including their desserts. I was lucky enough to spend some time studying in Spain, and churros were the very first Spanish sweet treat I tasted. Whether served at restaurants after meals, late at night on city streets, or at home they remain a beloved treat.
TIP: Churros come in many shapes. These teardrop ones will each have a unique shape as you pipe and fry them. For straight churros, simply pipe the dough onto the parchment in straight lines.
