Homemade Churros with Chocolate-Peanut Butter Sauce

Deep-fried batter tossed in cinnamon-sugar and dipped in warm, chocolaty peanut butter sauce.

Ingredients

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Sauce:

1
cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4
cup creamy peanut butter
1/2
cup milk
1/4
cup heavy cream
2
teaspoons vanilla

Churros:

2 1/2
tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
cup water
2
tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for frying
1
cup flour
1/2
cup granulated sugar
1
teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  • 1 To make the sauce: Combine all ingredients for the sauce in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir 5 minutes until chocolate chips are melted and sauce is smooth. Remove from heat; cool slightly to thicken.
  • 2 To make the churros: In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring sugar, salt, water and 2 tablespoons of oil to a boil. Remove from heat. Add flour and stir with a wooden spoon until a soft ball of dough forms. Transfer dough to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.
  • 3 Meanwhile, fill a large saucepan halfway with oil and heat over medium-high heat to 375°F. Carefully pipe churro batter into oil (or pipe onto a plate, then transfer to oil using a slotted spoon). Fry churros on both sides 1 to 2 minutes until golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to transfer churros to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  • 4 Combine sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add churros to bowl and toss lightly to coat. Serve churros warm with sauce on the side.

Of course you can make churros! Just check out this easy recipe and get started.

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

A quick batter turns into incredible deep-fried churros with a peanut butter and chocolate dipping sauce.

It’s August, and in Minnesota-land that means only one thing (well, besides mosquitoes): the State Fair.

And by the State Fair, I mean all the foods on a stick, deep-fried goodies and buckets, literally, of fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. It’s a foodie’s/competitive eater’s paradise.

Of course, not all of us have access to this annual festivity, which is why I’m here to save the day with a festival food treat you can make at home: Homemade Churros with Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce. Awww yeahhhh.

You won’t believe how easy it is to make this delectable dessert in your own kitchen. And that sauce? Unreal. Get your gullets ready.

 

Homemade Churros with Chocolate-Peanut Butter Sauce

First, make the sauce. Combine some chocolate chips, peanut butter, milk, cream and vanilla in a saucepan. Heat and stir, and in 5 measly minutes you’ll have warm, chocolatey, peanut buttery dipping bliss.

You’ll also probably have more sauce than you’ll use for dipping, so feel free to use the extra sauce to spoon on top of ice cream, waffles or directly into your face.

To make the churro batter, bring some water, oil, salt and sugar to a boil, then remove from heat and stir in some flour until a soft ball of dough forms. Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.

Meanwhile, fill a large saucepan about halfway with vegetable oil and heat over medium-high heat to 375ºF. You can pipe the churro batter directly into the oil, but for more accurate/pretty shapes, I suggest piping it onto a plate first, then transferring the dough that way into the oil.

Be sure to lower it into the oil with a slotted spoon – DO NOT plop it into the oil with your hands, that would be bad news bears.

Fry the dough until it’s golden brown on both sides, then transfer from the oil with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain the excess oil. Ooooo child, deep-fried batter goodness is about to enter your world!

Finally, toss the churros in cinnamon sugar (because YUM, that’s why) and serve them up warm with the chocolate-PB sauce on the side.

Tips  

Churros taste best the day they are made. You can pipe the batter into the oil in any shape you like: Rods, circles, ovals, Xs and Os, whatever!
