How to Make Churros in an Air Fryer

Churros are one of those treats that are always a hit with kids as they are just so fun & unique & really remind me of a trip to an amusement park, the fair or Disneyland. Since most of those places are closed this summer, making churros at home with your kids would be a great way to bring some of that summer fun right to your home. With an air fryer, churros are even easier than you think!
