Churros on a plate

Churros Dessert Recipe (Delicious!!)

I suppose “churros” are not primarily a Spanish dessert recipe, but they’re so wonderfully sweet and adaptable that I’m including them under desserts.

In Spain, famous churros are normally served accompanied by a cup of thick, creamy chocolate – as in chocolate con churros.

And, as those of you who’ve visited Spain will know, they’re absolutely delicious anytime of the day or night …

First thing in the morning, they make you feel life is worth living.

During the rest of the day, they’re a welcome treat and pick-you-up.

And, when you’ve been out partying all night, try chocolate con churros before going home to bed – they make a perfect ending to a great night out.

In fact, they’re a bit like tapas, aren’t they?… Suitable anytime, anywhere …

This is why you’ll find the following churros recipe under the sweet tapas section of my Spanish Tapas E-book … along with 299 other amazingly simple tapas recipes. Most of them savory, of course.

But, let’s get back to our churro recipe …
