Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Churro Muffins
Busy school days call for a special moment together after all the running is done. And there’s no better way to relax after a long day than with a delicious sweet treat!
With Hispanic Heritage Month kicking off soon, I can’t help but create something that reminds me of my childhood growing up in South Texas — churros. And it wouldn’t be Sweet Life if I didn’t put my own spin on this traditional favorite.
For Hispanic Heritage Month, Nabisco invited me to invent my own Latin-inspired spin on one of their Oreo churro recipe. That’s why I’m incorporating Oreos, a classic Nabisco favorite into this fun, kid-friendly treat!
An Incredible Oreo Merienda Snack
My mami often made us a special snack or treat that we would enjoy right after school. It served as an opportunity to visit together and relax after a long day at work or school. And it helped to keep our bellies from grumbling while we waited for mami to start dinner.
To many, this special snack time is known as a “merienda.” A merienda is a light meal or snack that usually takes place between lunch and dinner.
My favorite snacks were always the sweets that mami would bake for us. She never failed to whip up something fun and delicious for us to enjoy when we got home. I remember so many great days sitting down to the sweet smell of something baked especially for us. She always knew how to make us feel loved.
