Tiny Churro Bites get paired with a Spicy Chocolate Sauce for a sweet treat that’s guaranteed to satisfy any donut, pastry, sugar or chocolate craving!
Another day, another dessert. We’ve gone a little sweets wild this month but you know what? It’s okay once in awhile plus if you are going to indulge let it be during the holiday season. Come January 1st you can jump aboard the healthy train again but in December, let’s enjoy all those cookies, cakes and chocolates.
Also today is my birthday and if I want to eat fresh churros, I’m going to do it!
You should always get to eat whatever you want on your birthday, the calories don’t count then anyway right? Well it’s what I’m going to tell myself for one day a year at least.
I don’t have many birthday traditions but one of my favorites the last few years has been a birthday shopping spree. For a few years Braden will drop me off at a store of my choosing, cash in hand and will tell my to have fun. He’s the best husband isn’t he?
I’m not one for shoes, fancy clothes, makeup or jewelry. What gets my heart a flutter is the housewares section. I have always been this way, pretty pots, pans, serving ware, kitchen gadgets, glasses. You name it, I want it.
Now considering the size of our apartment, this is a bad habit to have but I can’t help myself. I just consider it all “part of the job”. Some people have to buy nice clothes for their job, I have to buy nice kitchen supplies. At least that’s what I told myself after I discovered Restaurantware – pretty much the perfect source for my habit and maybe yours too?
Restaurantware is especially perfect for this time of year and stocking up for holiday entertaining needs. I picked out a bunch of glasses that are just the right size for small bites or holding chocolates, mini pots for dips (like my chocolate) and that fry basket! Can it be any more perfect for these churro bites?
In general, I have a pretty strict no frying policy. It’s not because I don’t like fried foods (oh I do, I really do), it’s that I don’t want to deal with frying at home. However, sometimes you have to treat yourself and sometimes baked versions of fried foods just won’t cut it.
Sure, churros are simple a pate a choux dough that’s been fried and that dough is easily baked but would it taste the same? No it doesn’t!
Plus like I said, it’s my birthday and I wanted to eat freshly fried hot churros! If you are going to do it, do it right!
Turns out the frying wasn’t so bad after all either. A deep pot, a clean organized kitchen, an open window and a vent helped keep things under control.
