Churros Poppers

Sometimes, I get the weirdest cravings. Earlier today, I really wanted something with cinnamon and the idea of churros came to mind. I thought it would be fun to do a poppable version for upcoming Super Bowl parties - or any time! ;) These Churros Poppers are so easy!

I will warn you, one batch of these cinnamony nuggets may not be enough. Seriously, you'll want to eat the entire batch by yourself! It's easy to double or triple if necessary - and if you run out during game time, it's a cinch to whip up another batch!

A cookie scoop helps keep the poppers in uniform size, but you could also use a rounded measuring spoon. It also helped me roll these while they were still a bit warm!

Churros Poppers
Printable recipe
Yield: 15 poppers

½ cup sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup water
2½ tbsp. sugar
½ tsp. salt
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
Oil for frying

In a medium bowl or brown paper bag, combine the ½ cup sugar and 1 tsp. ground cinnamon; set aside.

Heat about 2½-inches deep of oil in a deep-fryer to 375°F.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the water, 2½ tbsp. sugar, salt and 2 tbsp. vegetable oil. Bring the mixture to a boil and then remove from the heat. Stir in the flour until the mixture forms a ball.

When the dough is cool enough to handle, roll into balls about the size of walnuts. Fry 3-4 dough balls at a time until golden brown. Remove from the oil and immediately shake or stir in the reserved cinnamon-sugar mixture. Remove to a plate while you repeat the process with the remaining dough.

  11. I tried to make something like this recently, and they didn't come out yummy. They certainly didn't look as good as the picture. I must have done something wrong! I'll keep this bookmarked for next time I try to make them.

  14. Just got back from Mexico for Christmas and has authentic churros filled with nutella, strawberry jam and honey. They were incredible that I'm still thinking about them. This recipe sounds wonderful and hopefully I can keep the momentum going of the churros. Thanks for sharing your post (found you on Pin Junkie). Following on google+ and facebook!

  40. Thanks for the recipe! My husband loves churros so I tried this recipe yesterday. They were good, but the inside was very mushy. I don't know if I did something wrong, but I couldn't get the inside to cook all the way. Tried turning down the temperature on the oil and making the poppers smaller, but they still wouldn't cook. Since there was no egg in the middle I wasn't worried about them being under done, and they were still delicious! :)
