Heart Shaped Churros

Heart Shaped Churros

Churros – tasty deep fried sticks of dough, cinnamon-sugar sprinkled and served with warm chocolate sauce for dipping, will make anyone’s day special!

They’re slightly crispy on the outside, soft and airy on the inside. Of course, hearts and chocolates go together, so don’t forget to dunk your churros in this dark chocolate sauce.
In my opinion, a real churro tastes totally far from those you can buy in stores – nothing compares to fresh, homemade churros. They may look intimidating to make but the steps are actually easy. The ingredients are simple too.
