Sure to be a winner with the kids – crunch churro’s & chocolate sauc

Churro’s were first introduced to our household by a popular pizza chain in New Zealand. My teenage son just loved them and a pizza order was not complete without a side of Churro’s with the chocolate dipping sauce.

I hunted high and low for a recipe that would be similar so that we could make these at home. (Isn’t that we do as Mum’s? – my kids used to have McMum’s when they were little. I always thought my burgers were healthier than those bought from that other famous fast food chain!)

I came across this Churro’s recipe which I think is pretty good and after a few attempts, not only will they taste the same but they will look similar to those you get with your pizza order!


Churro Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain flour, sifted
  • ¼ tsp baking powder, sifted
  • ⅔ cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Chocolate Sauce

  • 200g dark chocolate, finely chopped and 1 cup single cream
  1. Place flour, baking powder and 1 teaspoon of caster sugar into a bowl.
  2. Bring water to the boil and add olive oil. Pour liquid over dry ingredients and mix together with a wooden spoon until a smooth dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Spoon mixture into a piping bag with a large star nozzle attached.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a deep saucepan until it reaches 170°C on a sugar thermometer.
  5. Using a sharp knife cut off 6cm lengths of dough from the piping bag and fry in batches for 3-4 minutes, turning halfway until they are golden brown. Drain on a paper towel.
  6. Combine remaining caster sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl and roll the churros in the cinnamon sugar.
  7. Meanwhile, combine chocolate and cream in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth.
  8. Serve churros with chocolate sauce.

Trust me, you will be a popular mum with this recipe in your tool box for a Saturday night treat for the kids. Give it a whirl – they will love you even more!

Happy cooking & kids xx

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I live in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. I started my cooking blog as a hobby during my 'gap year' - 'lessonstodate' to share my family recipes and some personal accounts that come with being a mum, and grandmother - and corporate worker. My love of taking photos had taken a back-seat but recently after spending time on my own while my husband travelled, I found myself picking up my camera again. It really is good company! Looking out at the world and watching it unfold; you don't have to participate in it, just watch and wonder. Sharon
