I love churros! Love them.
Really any kind of churro especially if it is accompanied by a chocolate dipping sauce.
And that is exactly where the inspiration came for these Muddy Buddies. And they are to die for!
This bite sized snack has all the elements of a churro, crunchy cinnamon sweet dessert covered in a chocolate ganache. Drooling just even thinking about them. YUM!
There really isn’t much more to say than that, and to TRY THEM now!

    You are a girl after my own heart! I love me some churros. And having muddy buddies of any flavor is dangerous in our house…well, mainly dangerous for me because I can’t stop. Combining these two things could be the most lethal recipe of all. Yum!
