Churros & Hot Chocolate – The hot chocolate was really good. Smooth and Creamy! The spices in it were delicious. Our Churros were a little doughy and under cooked in the centers. I am wondering about the dough recipe. I followed it exactly but the dough was very stiff. I would like to experiment with the recipe some and see if I can get it to work out right. But, dipping them in the hot chocolate they were fabulous!
