SO remember how excited I was when I made those potato tacos? Multiply that by 58168191 and you'll understand just how I feel about these homemade churros with Mexican chocolate dipping sauce.
They are the ULTIMATE Cinco de Mayo dessert! They also used to be one of my favorite treats when we went to Disney World when I was a kid (or Disney Land as an adult because churros are awesome. As is Disneyland). So it was only a matter of time before I finally got around to making my own homemade churros.
When I was first researching the recipe I was pleasantly surprised at how few ingredients are needed to make them! I already had all the stuff just hanging around in my kitchen.
The tricky part of these delectable desserts is in the frying process. The oil needs to be around 350°F for the perfect homemade churro. Too cool and they get grossly soggy. Too hot and you get a burned, overly crunchy outside with a raw inside (gross). Do yourself a solid and grab a deep fry/candy thermometer. I got mine for $5 at my local grocery store!
Another piece of advice: be careful when piping these puppies. Take extra care to NOT overfill your piping bag. Trust me, I speak from experience. First time I made these, I busted through two bags. Totally overfilled them *face palm*.
Also, I just couldn't help myself...Mexican chocolate dipping sauce. Super easy, totally worth it. Heat up some cream on the stove or in the microwave and pour over the chocolate and a couple other ingredients. Let sit for 10 minutes then whisk until smooth. Done.
Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner so what are you waiting for?? Homemade churros with Mexican chocolate dipping sauce for the WIN!Print
