Red Velvet Churros

This is a fantastic variation to the standard churro.  The dark red velvet colour encased in cinnamon sugar just screams out EAT ME!

The crunchy outer casing of the churro, mixed with the sweet cinnamon sugar is offset by the vanilla cream cheese filling.  It doesn’t get any better.

These bite size treats are hard to resist.  Go on – I dare you!
