She had me at Chocolate con Churros
I’ve been enjoying following the blog Claudia Camina. Her recent topics include practical tips on footwear, snippets about people she’s met and crazy things she has seen on the Camino. She also throws in some helpful hints, such as places to get foot massages and advice on albergues. I will definitely tap into this knowledge when I am closer to walking my Camino.
I am a huge fan of the thick hot chocolate that is served with churros—a popular combination in Spain. When I saw Claudia’s post about it, it brought back memories of my first time trying this sweet treat in Sevilla. I was amazed how thick the chocolate was, like hot chocolate pudding! Here’s an excerpt from Claudia’s My Spanish Favorites: Chocolate con Churros post:
First of all, there’s the chocolate. It should be very dark, almost as thick as custard, lightly sweet, and piping hot. The real deal is made with pieces of dark chocolate bar melted into hot milk. Obviously, because the final product is so thick, there’s a lot of chocolate bar involved.
Thanks Claudia, for this delicious post! As a chocoholic, I am so glad the Camino provides chocolate con churros as well.
