Churros and ice cream might not seem like natural bedfellows. Churros, traditionally, come in the form of a stick. Ice cream is, for lack of a better description, a pile of frozen goo. You can dip your stick in goo or put goo on top of your stick, but neither combination is particularly elegant. (And both sound a bit R-rated.)
But that hasn’t stopped people from tying to unite to the two sweet foods. Over the past few years, the churro ice cream sandwich – made famous by Los Angeles’s Churro Borough –garnered attention for being a friendlier, handheld unity of ice cream and churro. And now, another emerging fad: the churro ice cream bowl.
