March is usually a very special month for me because it’s my birthday! But this year is even more special because is Easter or Pascua (Like we call it in Spanish) My husband travels a lot and my family lives all over the country but on Easter we always try to get together at someone’s house and this year is my turn.
On Easter we all dressed up very nice, sit at the dinning table and have a delicious meal that sometimes lasts 6 hours! Because we talk and talk, it’s so much fun! We are a “Big Familia”so everyone brings a dish or dessert and I’m preparing a traditional Mexican sweet with a twist” Churros Dipped in Chocolate a la M&M’s®!
My kids love churros and I buy them for special occasions and sometimes I dipped them in chocolate, they’re always a hit with family and friends. While shopping at Walmart for Easter-theme goodies I got the idea of give it a twist to the churros and make them for Easter, so I bought a bag of M&M’s® in Easter colorsand a bag of Starburst® Jellybeans Easter-theme of course!
Our Pascua menu is very Mexican, usually chilaquiles with chicken or mole poblano, my aunt will bring another dessert but I’m making Churros Dipped in Chocolate a la M&M’s® .Making them it’s not difficult, but it might take you some time to put the M&M’s on the churros, but it’s totally worth it!
Churros Dipped in Chocolate a la M&M’s®
Total Time: 1 hour (15 Churros)
15 Churros. You can buy them already made at any Mexican bakery.

If you like you can add a Starburst® Jellybeans on top of the churro. My Churros Dipped in Chocolate a la M&M’s® don’t only look adorable they taste delicious!
My Churros Dipped in Chocolate a la M&M’s® turned out to look so cute they could be a great Easter decoration! And there’s so many ways you can display them! In a vase using Starburst® Jellybeans to hold the churros and for decoration, place a styrofoam block in an Easter box and covered it with plastic grass and stick the churros.

- Place the semi-sweet chocolate chips and the coconut or vegetable oil in a safe microwave bowl, heat for about 1 to minutes until melted.
- Insert a wooden stick into the end of each churro, pushing the stick halfway in, leaving the other end exposed for use as a handle.
- Using a spatula covered 1/2 of the churro with chocolate sauce.
- Immediately after covering churro with chocolate sauce, start placing M&M’s® along the churro. Tip: Press the M&M’s® hard on the churro, once it’s covered with M&M’s® place the churro on a flat surface and let it dry.
