The best churro recipe to WOW Santa

Receta de Churros para Navidad

By Yvette Márquez, Vive Mejor Ambassador

Do you think Santa gets bored eating cookies and milk at every house on Christmas Eve? I have a sneaky suspicion he might, so at our house we plan to surprise Santa and set up something a bit more exotic -- churros and a hot cup of Lipton tea.

My children and I will be making churros with dulce de leche sauce, coated with sugar and cinnamon on Christmas Eve. We are going to set up a fun churro bar for Santa with other delicious dipping options such as rich hot chocolate, whipped cream, and sprinkles just to name a few.

With no softening necessary, Country Crock saves time in the kitchen making these fabulously crunchy, light, and sweet treats one of the easiest desserts that can be made at home. They are crispy on the outside and soft and airy in the inside.

I predict Santa will spend some extra time in our home enjoying churros at the churro bar and drinking a cup of hot tea.

I love deep-fried foods, but I don’t allow my children near hot oil, so a fun and lighter alternative is to use your waffle iron to cook the batter. The substitution of waffling for deep-frying cooks the churros just as quickly without the hassle of dangerous hot oil on the stovetop.

No matter how many more chimneys await his arrival, Santa won't be able to resist these tempting sweets on Christmas Eve. This year your family can wow Santa with churros too. Gather the kids, head to the kitchen, and make a batch or two of these churros. And don’t forget to add a few carrots for his trusty reindeer.

¡Feliz Navidad!
