Cinnamon Churros with Chocolate Dulce de Leche

Cinnamon Churros with Chocolate Dulce de Leche

Honestly, I think one prerequisite of “amusement park fare” is that you look completely ridiculous whilst you eat. I mean, c’mon… cotton candy? Turkey legs? And of course, churros, which seem to get longer and longer every time I see them.

But that doesn’t mean we enjoy them any less.

As it turns out, these delicious carnival staples can be made at home (not to mention in a much more reasonable size), in much less time than you might expect.

Cinnamon Churros with Chocolate Dulce de Leche

Get the recipe for these cinnamon churros over at the Better Homes and Gardens’ blog, Delish Dish. I’ve paired these fried cinnamon pastries with a decadent chocolate dulce de leche dipping sauce, perfect for those moments (and don’t we ALL have those moments), when you can’t decide between chocolate and dulce de leche. Why not have both?

    Oh, my lands! Lindsay, I just made Chocolate Dulce de Leche the other night for a b’day treat. Had a jar in the pantry and I added some Ghirardelli chips to it and nuked it for a quick sundae sauce, LOL. LOVE that you created the sauce for your Cinnamon Churros! Pinning (from BHG)!

    Making homemade dulce de leche was one of the tastiest decisions I’ve ever made. But chocolate? Chocolate dulce de leche? That’s going to change my life.

    Thank you for posting this so much. I got to try these last year from some guy who sells at the Eumundi markets and I’ve been dreaming of them ever since. Now I don’t have to go all the way to Eumundi to have some more! <3

    I tried to recreate these once, but the oil was too hot so I ended up with black sticks with a white centre…
    Whats awesome about churros is that they’re rolled in sugar and then dipped in a sauce, where else in the world would you get that sort of craziness?!
    Amaaazing pictures, I took the idea behind your almond horns and turned them into almond shortbread horns recently, thank you for the horny idea!

    There is a restaurant in New Haven that makes this as a signature dessert. It is the most amazing dish ever. So glad to be able to make it whenever I want now.

    Yum, I need to try these! I love anything that is donut-like and churros are one of my favorites. Anytime I go to a ballpark or amusement park, I must have one!

    Terrific recipe, but 2 minutes is too short with 375degree oil.
