For the Churros

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the Chocolate Sauce Dip:

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract



Making the Churros

  1. In a saucepan, combine water, sugar, salt, and vegetable oil. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the flour all at once. Stir vigorously until the mixture forms a dough and pulls away from the sides of the pan.
  3. Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a deep pot or fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  5. Pipe strips of dough directly into the hot oil, using scissors or a knife to cut the dough at the desired length. Fry the churros until they are golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Remove the churros from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain them on paper towels to remove excess oil.

Making the Cinnamon Sugar Coating:

  1. In a shallow bowl, mix together granulated sugar and ground cinnamon until well combined.
  2. While the churros are still warm, roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture until evenly coated.

Making the Chocolate Sauce Dip:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it just begins to simmer.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the semisweet chocolate chips. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Stir in vanilla extract until well combined.


Serve the freshly fried churros coated in cinnamon sugar with the warm chocolate sauce dip on the side for dipping. Enjoy the crispy, cinnamon-sugar-coated goodness with the rich, creamy chocolate sauce!


FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):

1. Can I make churros ahead of time?

Churros are best when served fresh and hot, but you can make the dough ahead of time and fry them just before serving. Alternatively, you can fry the churros ahead of time and reheat them in the oven before serving.

2. Can I use a different type of chocolate for the sauce?

Yes, you can use milk chocolate or dark chocolate instead of semisweet chocolate chips for the sauce, depending on your preference.

3. Can I bake the churros instead of frying them?

While traditional churros are fried, you can bake them in the oven for a slightly healthier option. Simply pipe the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 425°F (220°C) for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

4. Can I freeze leftover churros?

Churros are best enjoyed fresh, but you can freeze any leftover churros in an airtight container. To reheat, place them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 5-7 minutes, or until heated through.
