A festival favorite, churros are a Mexican-inspired sweet treat that’s perfect for snacking. Fried pastry dough is sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, producing a light and airy confection that’s totally addictive. We’ve turned long churros into cute little bites that are just right for sharing with family and friends. Dip in a rich chocolate sauce, dunk in a steaming mug of hot cocoa, or enjoy fresh out of the fryer – everyone will love these melt-in-your-mouth treats!
This delightful recipe is so easy to make, and can be mixed up in a Good Cook Ovenfresh Stoneware Mixing Bowl. Get your oil good and hot in a Good Cook Smart Choice Fry Pan, then crisp those lovely little churro bites until golden. Scoop them out with the Good Cook Slotted Spoon, then give them a generous sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Muy delicioso!
