How to Make Churros – Step by Step
Making homemade churros is a lot easier than you would think. You just need a piping bag with a star tip to make the shape, and you can fry them up right on the stove top. They only take a few minutes to fry, and then they’re ready to eat!
How to Make Churros with Chocolate Sauce:
- Heat 1-2 inches of vegetable oil in a deep skillet.
- In a large saucepan, combine water, butter, sugar, and salt. Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat. Stir in the flour until fully combined, then turn off the heat.
- Pour the mixture into a stand mixture and let it cool for a few minutes. Then add the egg and vanilla, and mix on high until smooth. When it’s done, transfer it into a piping bag with star tip.
- Combine cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl (to roll churros in later) and set aside.
- Use a candy thermometer to check the temperature of the oil. When it reaches 375°F, you’re ready to start frying.
- Pipe a 5-6 inch length churro directly into the oil, using a knife to cut them from the tip of the piping bag. You should be able to fit about 3 at a time in the skillet.
- Let them fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, flipping to make sure it’s fried all around and golden brown.
- Transfer them to a paper-towel lined plate to dry for 1 minute, then roll each one in the cinnamon sugar.
- Repeat the process until all the batter is used up, and you’ll have a plate full of churros!
- To make the chocolate sauce, place chopped chocolate pieces in a bowl. Heat the heavy cream on the stove, then pour it into the bowl with the chocolate. Stir it until everything is fully melted and combined.
Dip those churros in the chocolate sauce and enjoy!
