Cinnamon Caramel Churro Cupcakes

Having a birthday on Cinco de Mayo is pretty fantastic, especially if you are a high schooler in Spanish 4 porque hay una fiesta just for you! However, this does usually require that one bring their own specialized birthday treat. As the title of this post indicates, I made cinnamon caramel churro cupcakes! Here’s how:

Get some tortillas (white, whole wheat, whatever) and a cute mini cookie cutter…

…and stamp away!

Fry in 1/4-1/2″ or so of oil in a medium skillet.

And let them cool a bit before dumping them into a bowl of cinnamon sugar to coat.

You’re going to need cupcakes and a bit of thick caramel (dulce de leche!). I used the back of a chopstick to perforate my cupcakes and fill them, but I’m sure the back of a spoon handle/spoon would work equally well.

And when you’ve finished filling them, pipe a bit of cinnamon cream cheese frosting, place your churro star on top and you’re done!
