Churro S'mores


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • Pinch of salt

  • 2 eggs

  • Oil for frying

  • Chocolate sauce: 3/4 cup chocolate chopped, 1/3 cup heavy cream and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder

  • Jumbo marshmallows


  1. In a bowl, mix together flour and 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon. In a saucepan, heat water, butter, brown sugar, and salt until simmering. Add flour mixture and stir until a dough ball forms and pull away from the sauce pan. Set aside to cool.

  2. In a mixing bowl, add dough and slowly mix to incorporate one egg at a time. Transfer dough to a piping bag with a star tip attached. On a greased baking sheet, slowly pipe the dough into discs using a spiral motion. Place is freezer for about 20 minutes.

  3. Heat oil to 350 degrees F. Gently place two discs at a time and fry until golden brown. Remove from oil, and drain on paper towels.

  4. Combine sugar and 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon in a bowl, and toss fried churros until lightly coated.

  5. For the chocolate sauce: melt chocolate, add cayenne powder, and stir in heavy cream until well combined.

  6. Roast marshmallows over flame, top on churros, and drizzle the chocolate sauce on top.
