The Spanish know what they're doing when it comes to street food. And that's absolutely clear with their churros. We can't think of one dessert that understands people with a sweet tooth more than the churro. These long, craggily pieces of fried dough are not only rolled with cinnamon sugar, but they're served with hot chocolate for dunking. Can we get an amen?

Churros are not just found in Spain, luckily, they're also common all over Latin America. They've even found their way into our kitchens. Of course, when we find a food we love, we try to make as many iterations of it as we can. The churro is no exception.
