The night started out with myself and bestie/blogmate Kelsi just wanting to have a fun girls night on some "netflix and chill" level. Next thing I know we were looking online for something delicious to cook up.  Churros have always been a fav dessert (coming from a non-dessert type gal), but it's something I never thought of making myself.  Turns out they aren't as complicated as one might think, and for our first time they ended up pretty delicious. What a great party snack! We looked at several recipes online and made some tweaks with what we had and went from there. (including a chocolate/nutella dip!) *cue drooling*

First things first gather your ingredients! **You will also need an icing bag with a large star pastry tip!**

Churros:

  • 1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 tbsp Raw sugar, divided (or white sugar)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp veg oil (plus 2 quarts for deep frying)
  • 1 cup flour

Chocolate Nutella dipping sauce

  • 3 1/2 ounces bakers chocolate chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbs

Making the Churros

  1. Combine 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon on a plate.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat whisk together the water, 1 1/2 tbsp sugar, salt and 2 tbsp veg oil.  
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil, remove from heat.  
  4. Stir in the flour and continue mixing until it forms a ball of dough. 
  5. Heat 2-3 inches of oil in a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat.
  6. Place your dough into the icing bag with a large star tip while the oil heats.  
  7. Pipe the dough into the oil in the length you would like your churros to end up. (we piped ours onto a plate first since it was our first time, and then transferred them into the oil).
  8. Pipe 2-3 churros into the oil at a time and let them fry until they are a golden color.
  9. Transfer them to a plate lined with paper towel to drain for a minute or two.
  10. Roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  11. Repeat with the rest of the dough. 

Making the sauce 

  1. Warm the milk, chocolate and nutella all together in a small saucepan over medium heat until it mixes together.
  2. Do NOT boil, and mix constantly to avoid burning the chocolate. Once the mixture is warmed and mixed together it's ready for dipping.

Serve, Dip and enjoy!
