Flavor of the Week: Churros inspire more common desserts

The street food can be filled with flavored sauces

Churros, long pieces of fried dough coated with cinnamon and sugar, are a street food found in Spanish and Latin American cuisines. They can be filled with caramel, chocolate or other flavored sauces. Operators are using churro flavor as the inspiration for more common desserts like ice cream and cake. Churro is gaining traction on menus with 38 percent growth on U.S. menus over the past four years.
