Churros are such a yummy dessert snack. If you’ve ever been to Disney and experienced their famous Churros, you are going to love learning how to make them right at home!
I really love copy-cat recipes. Isn’t it awesome to know how to make your own Chic-Fil-A Nuggets and McDonalds Shamrock Shake?
So, What is a Churro Anyway?
The short answer, it is fried dough dipped in cinnamon sugar. They’re served warm, straight from the frier and taste so delicious.
They originated in Spain but have been made wildly popular by Disney Parks. You’ve probably also seen them a lot of fairs and carnival events!
Disney released their special, secret recipe so here we are making them at home.
Here Are The Ingredients You Need
- Unsalted butter
- Vegetable or Canola Oil
How To Make Churros
- Make the dough. Boil water, butter, salt, and ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon in a saucepan. Reduce the heat and add flour, stirring until a ball of dough forms. Let it cool, then add eggs.
- Fry the dough. Add the dough into a piping bag. Heat oil to 350 degrees and pipe a strip of dough into the oil. Cook until it turns golden brown.
- Roll in cinnamon sugar. Combine sugar and the remaining cinnamon in a bowl and roll your fresh churro in the mixture.
Churros are often served with chocolate sauce. You can serve yours plain or with any fun sauce like caramel or strawberry! Try them all.
How To Store Them
Typically, you want to plan to make these when you are ready to eat them. They taste best when they’re hot and crispy.
If you do have to store them, keep them at room temperature and I wouldn’t keep them longer than a day.
