Churros is like music to my kids’ ears. They could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The combination of vanilla, sugar and cinnamon is definitely irresistible. So a few days ago I decided to surprise them with this delicious snack that has everything they love about churros: crunchy texture, sweet and with cinnamon. It’s super easy to make, although you should make a large quantity because it will simply fly off the table. MORE + LESS -
