Peanut Butter Churros
Churros are all the rage right now, but they’ve been a favorite of mine for quite some time. I was so excited to finally cross ‘make churros from scratch’ off my bucket list. Surprisingly, it’s easier than I would have thought and fewer ingredients than I would have expected as well. Churro shops and food trucks are popping up all over the place and for good reason. You can customize your flavors and dipping choices – then enjoy the hot delicious treat nearly right out of the fryer. If you can’t make it to a shop or truck you’ll be happy to know they are just as easy to make right at home! Give these peanut butter churros version a try – they are delicious
