Go Get Em Tiger, a small cafe in Los Angeles, just created 2015’s essential dessert mash-up: the churro waffle. Forget crookiescronuts and brookies, the churro waffle is ready to take over your tastebuds. It is light, fluffy, crunchy, cinnamon-y and sugary just like a churro. But it’s shaped like a waffle.

Mind. Blown.

This might be the single best bite of food you have all year. What are you waiting for? Invite your friends over and whip up a batch of the next big thing. #treatyoself

P.S. this ridiculous new mashup needs a fun celebrity name. Something like chuffle or waffuro. Comment with any ideas you have. The more creative, the better.
