I’ve added autumn flavors to these traditional churros. Try your own flavorings, too. You can add a variety of extract flavorings to the batter, dip them in melted chocolate or drizzle with jam. Any way you make them they are a treat, so have fun and make sure you share!
The frying part is definitely NOT for the kids to do, but have them help roll them in the sugar coating. It is simple and fun to do.
