  • Ooh ahh! Churros are a once-a-year treat for us. If I made these at home… they would be made and eaten too often!! I’d love Miguel to make these for me though.

  • Ooh yum. I would love Miguel to come to my home and make these for me. He could also dip them in chocolate sauce and feed them to me if he likes. Looks delicious!

  • I love churros especially with chocolate. It’s even nicer with dulce de leche (Spanish caramel). Yummy can’t wait to try this recipe.

  • Ooh, I never imagined I could possibly make these myself. As an irregular treat, we sometimes (maybe once a year) splurge on churros as they are a little expensive. What a treat to make them at home.

  • Sounds good for a once a year treat – I’d be the size of a house other than that.
