Chocolate Churrovers – Chocolate Churro Turnovers

Chocolate Churrovers -  Churro Turnovers | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I’ve been sitting on a little gem for awhile. Sweet Mercy Vanilla Baking Mix that is.
I decided I want to make something memorable with this mix. I mean, I can make practically anything with this mix from sweet cupcakes, to muffins, to pancakes, to these Chocolate Churrovers. These are Chocolate Turnovers with a Churro Twist to them.

Flaky on the outside, tender on the inside, filled with sweet chocolate, doused in cinnamon and sugar and drizzled with even more chocolate, these turnovers will make your tongue dance with joy.

These are the kind of goodies that had my kids in the kitchen every 5 minutes asking if I was done yet. And when they were done, they were all gone within 30 minutes.
Maybe next time I’ll make two batches of these for good measure.
