Why Churros Will Change Your Life


Everyone has their vice.  For many people, their vice can be different sorts of food that they will inhale at every opportunity they get.  Some people can’t control themselves around a toasted, cheesy pizza, a crisp bag of sour cream and onion chips, or even a freshly baked batch of brownies.

Well, for those of us who are chocolate and sugar fiends, one very under eaten treat will literally change your life.  Now, being a sugar addict is nothing to be ashamed of.  So many people find themselves craving sweets on a constant basis.

One treat that will undoubtedly aid in your sweet cravings is churros con chocolate.  Churros are a popular Latin dessert and are widely eaten in countries such as Mexico and Spain.  However, if you are a chocolate lover who has not experienced the delicious taste of churros con chocolate, then you, my friend, have been severely deprived.

Spain is known for having a plethora of amazing food options.  Churros con chocolate is just one of the foods that Spaniards seem to do better than anyone else.  To explain exactly what churros con chocolate is, churros are fried, sweet dough, covered in sugar and cinnamon.

All places make churros slightly differently but think of it as a more doughy,  elongated version of a funnel cake.  Next, the chocolate part of churros con chocolate is just that.  A healthy cup full of chocolate.  And while the chocolate tastes similar to hot chocolate, it tends to be much richer and thicker than hot chocolate.  Think of a dense syrup and hot chocolate hybrid.

So, in order to best reap the incredible benefits of the churros con chocolate, the combination of sugary dough and chocolate must be perfectly portioned to your preferences.  Some people prefer a little chocolate to large churro ratio while other will dunk their entire churro in the cup of chocolate and let it soak for a few seconds.

Regardless, your churros con chocolate treat will have you craving them over and over.  And while it may be tempting to down an entire order by yourself, churros con chocolate is typically shared between good friends relaxing and enjoying each other’s company at a cafe.
