<a href="http://www.yumsugar.com/Churro-Ice-Cream-Sandwich-Recipe-35420629"></a>Churros and ice cream: it just works. These decadent ice cream sandwiches, <a href="http://www.yumsugar.com/Churro-Ice-Cream-Sandwich-35021661">popularized by Churro Borough</a>, are easily one of our favorite food trend mashups to hit the scene, and we know you're going to love them too. One part chewy, cinnamon-sugar-crusted churro and one part dulce de leche ice cream, they're like a fiesta in your mouth. On Brandi: Layla Jayde Adapted from <a href="http://www.sugarhero.com/churro-ice-cream-sandwiches/">Sugar Hero</a> Churro Ice Cream Sandwiches Ingredients1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon cinnamon 1 cup water 2 tablespoons brown sugar 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 large eggs Oil, for frying 1 cup granulated sugar 9 scoops dulce de leche ice cream Directions Make the churro cookies: Sift together the flour and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon into a medium mixing bowl. Add the water, brown sugar, vegetable oil, and salt to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and once boiling, add in the flour mixture, and stir quickly. The mixture will be thick, but continue to stir it until the flour is incorporated and it forms a rough, shaggy ball of dough. Transfer the dough to the bowl of a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed and add eggs one at a time until the dough is combined and smooth. Line two baking sheets with parchment or wax paper. Fit a pastry bag with a <a href="http://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fproduct%2FB00125NHZC%2Fref%3Das_li_tl%3Fie%3DUTF8%26camp%3D1789%26creative%3D390957%26creativeASIN%3DB00125NHZC%26linkCode%3Das2%26tag%3Dpopsho-20%26linkId%3D76GJPMTSIK7MDLRH" target="_blank">#821 piping tip</a>, and fill bag with churro dough. Pipe the dough into 3-inch circles, starting at the center of the circle and working outward in a spiral pattern. Keep the tip close to the baking sheet so the dough is thin. You should get about 18-20 circles from one batch. Place baking sheets in the freezer for at least 10 minutes to set and chill the dough. While the churros are freezing, heat the oil for frying. Add oil to a large skillet or deep fryer so that it's at least 2 inches deep. Heat the oil to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with several layers of paper towels. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and remaining 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Fry 2-3 churros at a time, turning them over occasionally so they brown evenly. When they are finished they will be slightly puffed and golden brown on both sides. Transfer them to the paper-towel-lined baking sheet using a slotted spoon or spatula to let the oil drain. Quickly toss them in the cinnamon sugar mixture while they are still warm. Continue working in small batches until all of the churros are fried. Make the churro ice cream sandwiches: Take one churro, top with a scoop of ice cream, and place another churro on top. Gently press together to adhere the cookies to the ice cream. Serve immediately, or freeze for later.

<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/food/Funfetti-Cake-Batter-Cinnamon-Rolls-38786768"></a>You all know I love funfetti and cake batter more than anything, so incorporating it into pretty much any breakfast routine seems like the natural progression. I've already made a <a href="http://www.popsugar.com/food/photo-gallery/37102866/image/37102867/Birthday-Cake-Hot-Chocolate">funfetti hot chocolate</a> and <a href="http://www.popsugar.com/food/Funfetti-Pancake-Recipe-36993706">funfetti pancakes</a>, so why not cinnamon rolls? But to make these even better, we gave them a twist and added in a nice filling of cake batter in between. <a href="/node/39062735/edit" rel="nofollow"></a> From Nicole Iizuka, POPSUGAR Food Cake Batter Cinnamon Rolls IngredientsFor the cake batter rolls: 1/4 cup white cake mix 1/4 cup sprinkles 2 tablespoons light brown sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 1 8-ounce package crescent roll dough For the glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar 3 tablespoons heavy cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 cup sprinkles Directions Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease a small casserole dish using non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. In a bowl, mix together cake mix, sprinkles, sugar, and cinnamon. Add in softened butter and mix well. Pop the crescent roll dough and carefully unroll the dough into a long rectangle shape. Gently press together the perforated markings. Evenly sprinkle the cake batter mix over the top of the dough, leaving 1/4-inch boarders around the outsides. Roll the dough into a tight log. Slice evenly into 8 rolls and transfer the rolls into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown on top. While the rolls are baking, combine the powdered sugar with heavy cream and vanilla extract to make a glaze. Remove rolls from the oven and drizzle with glaze and garnish with more sprinkles.
