Since I had a Mexican theme for my Scentsy party, I knew this recipe would be the perfect addition for a "dessert" type of dish. 

This recipe for Cinnamon Churro Muddy Buddies turned out so darn good!! 

The whole bowl was gone by the end of the party! It's also so easy to make! 

The cinnamon chips were kind of hard to find, it took visiting a couple stores to get them. 

I would look online or call around before you go shopping just to make sure your local stores have them.
