Ahh churros! Let me tell you my friends that if there is one sweet dessert I’m obsessed with is churros. I don’t think I know a single person that does not love them. When churros is an option, you better believe that my family is the first one to be there. In fact, our trips to the mall are always made upon the promise that there will be churros.
Our love for the sweet dessert has just been enhanced times ten with this Oreo Churro Bites with Dulce de Leche recipe. I mean can you believe it!?
Oreos. Churros. Dulce de leche.
All in one!
Is there a better way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month? I think not.
Here, we always have a pack of Oreos in hand –we can thank my daughter for that– so making this easy recipe from Nabisco to share during merienda time with the kids was fairly simple.
Nabisco is making it a little easier for Latina moms like myself to share the tradition we grew up with, merienda, with our families. They are providing a variety of fun and delicious Latino-inspired recipes that are just right to treat the family like these Oreo Churros recipe! These recipes are easy-to-make and feature the family’s Nabisco favorites: Oreo, Chips Ahoy!, RITZ Crackers and Honey Maid.
To make the recipe even more fun, I made the churros bite size and added a dulce de leche sauce for us to dunk the bite size Oreo churros in!
I have to tell you, I don’t think I’ve tried anything better.
Tip: When piping dough into oil make sure to use kitchen shears to cut the dough at the desired piece size as it is a dense batter and won’t release on its own.
