Chocolate con Churros

Churros with chocolate is a very typical Spanish breakfast. It is a treat for gourmands. A few Churros dipped in a cup of warm chocolate can satisfy the most gluttonous.

Usually people have hot chocolate with churros for breakfast,  because it is really filling, but for a snack in the afternoon it can be a good idea as well.

What is the recipe of churros?

The recipe is simple, just mix a bowl of flour with a bowl of water, add a little yeast, a little salt and sugar, make the shape and fry it in hot oil.

But people don’t usually bake it at home, it is a dish that you eat when you have breakfast at a bar, or at a ‘chocolateria’.
