  • churro maker or piping bag fitted with a coupler and medium star tip


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • sugar for sprinkling
  • 8 ounces chopped dark chocolate, melted


  • Place flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl and whisk together.
  • Add boiling water to flour mixture and stir together with a wooden spoon until mixture is fully combined, with no dry spots.
  • Pour 3 inches oil into a tall sided pot and preheat to 350˚F.
  • Push mixture into a churro maker with a medium star insert, or piping bag fitted with a medium star tip and pipe 6 inch churros directly into the hot oil, snipping the ends off with scissors, before piping another churro. Fry a few at a time.
  • Fry churros for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
  • Transfer churros onto a cooling rack, lined with a paper towel and repeat until all churros have been fried.
  • Transfer churros onto a platter and sprinkle with a generous amount of sugar. Serve with melted chocolate on the side.


  • *Makes ~12 churros
  • **Although you can use a piping bag, fitted with a star tip, it’s a bit difficult because the dough is so stiff. I highly recommend buying a churro maker….OR you can roll the dough out into a thin, long snake and snip into 6 inch piece and carefully lift and transfer into the hot oil. They won’t be quite the same, but still crisp and delicious!
