I am so excited to have my first guest post for you guys today. And I think you are really going to love it! Some great friends of mine recently started a blog together. I will let them tell you more about themselves and their blog:
Hi! Thank you for having us on Chelsea’s Messy Apron! We are so excited to be guest posting here today. We are Vanessa and Rachael from Travel Parent Eat!
A little about us: We are both moms to 4 kids. We love to travel the world. And we love food! We think everyone should travel young, eat well, and enjoy life to its fullest. Our name kind of says it all, we post about our families, our tips and tricks for travel, and some of our other passions. We are a lifestyle blog for parents, foodies, and adventure seekers.
Today we wanted to share a culinary journey across the map that is catered to the little ones in our lives. As moms we know that if it is not kid-friendly it won’t get eaten. Check out our Kid Friendly Kale recipes and Vegan Turkey Pancakes for ideas on getting kids to eat healthy foods without complaint.
How To Make Spanish Street Churros
½ cup unsalted butter
¼ tsp salt
1 cup white flour
1/2 – 1 cup water
Oil for frying
½ cup sugar
1/8 cup cinnamon
½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup cream
1 Tbsp maple syrup
Directions: To make your chocolate sauce place the chocolate, cream and syrup in a saucepan on very low. Heat until melted through. Remove from heat immediately.
For the churros, mix sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Heat the butter in a saucepan until boiling. Add salt and stir. Stir in flour and slowly add the water until you have a soft doughy ball (you may not need the entire cup so start with less and add more as needed). Transfer to a bowl and add your 3 eggs and mix. Heat your oil at medium high. Transfer batter into a piping bag or gun with a star tip. Pipe into the oil about a 6 inch long piece of dough. Use a knife to scrape the batter from the gun each time. Fry for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Take them out one at a time and roll in the sugar mixture.
Dip in the chocolate and eat immediately! They are best fresh! This is no frozen Disneyland churro. Melt in your mouth. And that chocolate sauce just puts it over the top!
