Growing up in Long Island, a right of passage as a child is to go to the most amazing place on earth.... Splish Splash. A massive waterpark right in Long Island, which in an of itself is a kid's dream come true...Splish Splash, for me, was even more than a waterpark.

It was the land of Churros.

The only place I've ever eaten Churros were at Splish Splash....fried dough covered in Cinnamon Sugar and melt in your mouth texture. This recipe is made with things you'll find in your pantry, and takes only a few minutes to make! Also, this is dairy free for all you out there who don't eat dairy!
