Churro Chow {Gluten Free}

Churro Chow {Gluten Free}

I got the idea for Churro Chow from a coworker and I am so excited about it! Not only does it taste exactly like a churro, but it might be one of the easiest treats you could ever make. It’s addictively good and I can’t help but think of my little sister and the summer my family moved when we were younger.

We found ourselves in a neighborhood with no other children. Naturally, we spent our summer break baking! We would watch Martha Stewart almost every morning and then walk to the grocery store, buy the ingredients, and bake up a storm in the afternoon. Sometimes the cookies or cake turned out way better than one would expect from a 13 and 8 year old and sometimes we failed miserably. On the occasions that things didn’t turn out as expected, we always had ingredients to make puppy chow on standby. I’m pretty sure there were days that, after watching Martha, we said, “forget it” and went straight to the puppy chow!

My sister will be moving home from Colorado soon and I see lots of Churro Chow in our future!
