I have had my fair share of ice cream sandwiches as well as churros, but until now I have not seen them morphed together. I’m here to tell you: It’s glorious!! These Cookies and Cream Churros are going to delight your sense of taste and whimsy!

Sure, they are a little bit of work but didn’t your mom tell you that the best things in life are? This delightful creation was imagined by Pastry Chef Kursten Riggot of Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa in Florida. If you can’t take a trip there anytime soon, this recipe can help!
