The most enticing and exciting part of indulging in a good Mexican meal is what comes at the end — cinnamon-y, sugary, crispy, delicious churros. Not only are the incredibly tasty, with their crunchy outside and soft, decadent inside, but they are the perfectly sweet way to finish off a meal of spicy, filling food.

As a twist on this old favorite, BuzzFeed Food has incorporated red velvet into the mix — we can’t say “yum” enough times.

Incorporating all of the same elements of a traditional churro, plus the red velvet and cream cheese icing of course, these red velvet churros are straight out of our chocolate-y dreams.
