Disneyland Churro Bites ~ Copycat Recipe

Disneyland Churro Bites - so delicious!! Recipe on { lilluna.com } Little bites of pure heaven!! Crispy, but soft and full of cinnamon/sugar flavor and use whatever dipping sauce you like!

Hello everyone!!!! It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. again. I’m so excited to be here today. A little bit ago Kristyn mentioned that she was hoping I could share a Disney themed recipe for today. I was so THRILLED because I grew up about 10 minutes from Disneyland. Up until I moved away from Orange County, Disneyland was a weekly occurrence for me. I marched in the parades there on more than one occasion. I sang with my choir there multiple times per year. It was our place to go – even if just for dinner & to catch a couple rides on a slow Tuesday evening. So when thinking about what Disney themed recipe I would love to recreate – my favorite – Disneyland Churros came to mind.

My son – who is obsessed with all things cinnamon – was beyond happy that I was making these. He could smell the cinnamon/sugar mixture from down the hall in his room & emerged just in time to help me.

Normally one would make these with the ultra-large 1-1/2″ star tip on the piping bag. That would result in the regular Disney sized churros. Well – I thought for sure in all the mountains of cake decorating supplies I brought back home from my mom’s- that I had that exact tip. Apparently I do not- so I used the 1″ instead. Made for a smaller churro diameter.

They still taste just as good as I remember – always best while still warm.

Growing up you didn’t get any sort of dipping sauce when you bought your churro. You went to the guy pushing the cart & that was all you got. Now you can get chocolate sauce for dipping them. It’s quite tasty & I think a very good addition to an already yummy treat.

So I decided to jazz up my churros a little – Dulce de Leche for some, Toasted Coconut Hot Fudge, Triple Berry Sauce, Peanut Butter Sauce & Mocha Dulce de Leche. Each one was great with these churros. My mind is already swirling with ideas of what I would like to dip them in or top them on next.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tbsp butter diced
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • canola oil for frying

Cinnamon Coating

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar (to start - I kept adding more sugar as the mixture moistened from the heat)
  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together ยฝ cup granulated sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

  2. Heat 1ยฝ inches of oil in a large pot over medium heat to 360 degrees (Watch this closely - though the entire cooking process - important to maintain your temperature).
  3. In a separate medium saucepan combine milk, water, butter, 2 tsp sugar, and salt and bring mixture just to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, remove from heat and immediately stir in vanilla and flour.
  5. Stir together with spatula & smooth any lumps. Stir until mixture comes together and is smooth. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a large open star tip
  6. Pipe 2-4 inches of dough out into oil
  7. Cut dough & to allow dough to drop into oil
  8. I recommend working in small batches as the dough likes to travel in the oil & come together. Allow churros to fry until golden brown - remove with a wire strainer
  9. Drain on a wire rack for a couple minutes.
  10. Toss warm, drained churros into sugar mixture to evenly coat.
  11. Serve warm with dipping sauce if desired.

If you want to make some of the dipping sauces I used with these churros – try these.

  2. Hi ????

    I’m looking at making these beautiful bad boys. Is it nessesary to keep the batter warm? I doubt I’ll be able to finish these with just my son. ????

    Thank you for your copycat recipes. They’ve been helpful to our family.

  3. Thank you for responding ????

    I was asking about the batter. Does the batter need to be warm/hot before piping into the oil?

    Thank you ????
