I love churros and I always get them whenever I see street vendors selling churros.
Little G is a big fan of churros, too.
I remember paying $8 for a churro insider Disneyland.
To take matters into my own hands, my kitchen assistant Kendoll and I made these easy churros.
With Valentine’s Day just days away, we made these churros into heart shapes, and drizzled them with rich and creamy chocolate sauce.
What a great idea, now that’s a versatile churros recipe that you can use anytime of the year, and for special occasions, too!
Make a bunch of these easy heart-shaped churros for your sweethearts.
Have a great Valentine’s Day!

Easy Churros - fail-proof homemade churro recipe that you can make every day Drizzled with chocolate sauce and into heart shapes, so good.
- 1 cup water
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
- Vegetable cooking oil, for frying
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 3 1/2 oz. milk chocolate, chopped
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Mix the sugar and cinnamon together. Set aside. Line a tray with parchment paper.
Heat the water, sugar, salt and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil then turn heat off and immediately add all the flour. Stir the flour vigorously with a wooden spoon until the dough forms a ball. Set aside for to cool down a little but pipe while the dough is still warm and pliable. Fit a large piping bag with a large closed star tip. Spoon the dough into the bag and carefully pipe the hearts on the tray.
Heat the vegetable oil in a pot to 375F. Lower the hearts into the oil using a wooden spoon (to keep the shape well). Use chopstick to flip and fry until golden brown. Drain on kitchen towels and then roll the churros in the cinnamon sugar.
To make the chocolate sauce, heat the cream until just boiling then pour it over the chopped chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is melted. Drizzle is over the churros or dip the churros in the sauce. Serve warm.
Draw hearts on the parchment paper as a template, then pipe the churro into heart shape by tracing the drawing.
