Life doesn’t get much better than dancing round Disney, dressed as your favorite character and snacking on Disney Churros! But what happens when you can’t skip over to Cinderella’s Castle for your favorite snack? We’ve found Disney’s Churros recipe so you can recreate the ultimate sweet treat from the comfort of your own home.
Here is what you’ll need:
- 250ml water
- 8 tbsp butter
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 170g all-purpose flour
- 3 eggs
- 275ml vegetable oil
- 115g sugar
- 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Here is how you make them:
- Start by combining the water, butter, salt, and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon in a 1 ½ litre saucepan on a medium heat. Bring the pot to the boil.
- Once it starts to bubble, reduce to a low heat.
- Gradually, add the flour to the sauce pan and stir vigorously until the mix forms a ball. Remove from the heat and let it rest for 5-7 minutes.
- Next, add eggs, one at a time and stir until combined. Set aside.
- In a separate skillet, or medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium to high heat (or until temperature reaches 350°F).
- Spoon the dough into a piping bag fitted with a large star-shaped tip. Pipe one-inch strips of the dough-mix into the saucepan, cut the end of each strip with a knife, and drop into hot oil. Repeat until churro bites fill the saucepan with room to fry.
- Fry churro bites until golden brown. Carefully remove from the oil with a slotted spoon.
- Drain any excess oil from the churro bites by leaving them on a paper towel.
- Mix together the sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add the churro bites and toss them around until coated. Place on a serving plate and serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Our favorite is chocolate fudge… mmm!
- Tuck in and enjoy the taste of Disney!!
