Cinco De Mayo Churro Cupcakes

Churros are the bomb. Nothing like a fluffy batter deep fried and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar to get your cravings going. 

I am signed up to bring a dessert to a Cinco De Mayo party this year so I thought I would bring something churro related.

I needed to make a lot, and always wanting to save time, I opted for a boxed version.

Don't worry, even though they aren't completely homemade, they are still super tasty, moist, and full of flavor with the addition of a special topping. 

Trust me, you will want to make these year round!

I used this cake mix and this churro mix, as I couldn't find Churros at our grocery store. 

To go with the whole fiesta fun look, be sure to use bright cupcake liners in a mix of colors.
