Chocolate Con Churros

Course Dessert
Servings 15 6-7” churros


  • 1 cup water
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg optional
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Dark chocolate and cream in equal parts amount depends on your liking


  • In a saucepan, bring water, butter, vanilla, salt, and sugar to a boil.
  • Once it boils, remove from heat and quickly stir in the flour until a smooth ball forms.
  • Let it cool for about 5 minutes, then add the egg and stir until fully combined. (You can skip the egg if you want a more traditional texture.)
  • Transfer the mixture to a piping bag with a 1/2” French star tip. Pipe 6-7” churros onto parchment paper, fixing any imperfections with a wet finger. Cut the paper so each churro has its own strip.
  • Combine sugar and cinnamon on a plate.
  • Heat oil to around 370°F, then fry the churros in batches of 3 for 4-6 minutes until deep golden. They might stick together but should separate easily.
  • Roll the hot churros in the cinnamon sugar mix.
  • Make ganache by pouring hot cream over chocolate, waiting 5 minutes, and stirring until combined.
  • Serve the churros with ganache and savor the goodness!
