This simple and delicious treat is a very typical thing in Spain throughout the year, but for many Spaniards, this also has a great Christmas connotation. It is the standard breakfast after a night of celebration. On Christmas morning and New Year´s Day, in the churrerías (shops where they make churros) queues of people form waiting to take their order of fresh churros and hot chocolate sauce.

From time to time you have to allow yourself something so rich and so full of tradition, even if it get you gain  some weigh.
