Churro Waffles for Cinco de Mayo
These waffles are so easy to make and absolutely melt-in-your-mouth incredible. My favorite Belgian Waffles dipped in butter and coated in cinnamon sugar.
I’m not a real Cinco de Mayo-y kind of person.
But I do like Mexican food. And I realllllllllly love churros. Like to the Nth degree. Because what’s not to love about a fried dough stick coated in cinnamon sugar dipped in caramel and chocolate?! I can find absolutely no fault there.
Today, we’re combining two of my favorite foods: waffles and churros.
If you’ve never tried them before, I absolutely insist that you stop what you’re doing and make a big batch right away. I’m not trying to be bossy.
This is for your own good.
You can make any kind of waffle you’d like– heck, use a toaster waffle! That’s totally fine(ish ???? ). I prefer my favorite homemade Easy & Fluffy Belgian Waffles; but if you already have a recipe that you love, feel free to deviate from the recipe below and use your own.
When it comes to toppings, you can never go wrong with a good, classic maple syrup. But may I suggest giving salted caramel sundae sauce a try? And maybe a little Nutella? You won’t regret it, I promise.
Does anyone ever regret Nutella??
Go ahead and start warming up your waffle iron– you’re less than 10 minutes away from the best waffle you’ve ever had.

Pour the butter into a square baking dish, and pour the cinnamon sugar into a second square baking dish.
When ready to serve the waffles, dip both sides of each waffle into the melted butter and then immediately into the cinnamon sugar.
