Churros and hot chocolate for breakfast?

No escaping that it's World Cup time! A great excuse in our house to make Churros and Hot Chocolate for breakfast.

A few years ago I read a novel 'The Lost Recipe for Happiness' by Barbara O'Neal, set in a restaurant in Colorado, the main character is the (female) head chef with a Mexican upbringing. I loved this book - and I loved the recipes scattered throughout. This recipe - Tansy's Churros - comes from that book. (Tansy was one of the characters in the book who worked in the restaurant kitchen.) I always thought churros would be far too tricky to make, but, thankfully I was wrong. These churros are beautiful. I've made them for family and friends for a decadent weekend breakfast, served with Mayan Hot Chocolate (another recipe from the book), and I'll make them again for a not-so-healthy early morning treat during the World Cup!

I didn't have some of the authentic ingredients listed in the recipes, but my substitutes worked well.
