Disney Parks Churro Bites

UPDATE (to post below) I got a bigger tip and the churro bites came out much better!  I ordered this one from Amazon and it was perfect for churros, as you can see when looking at the two pictures.  They turned out almost just like the churros you get at Disneyland and not like churro … Continue reading
