How To Make Churros & Chocolate

You can make the Spanish Cruller or Churro at home easily using a decorators tube or a churro-making device. You see, Spanish crullers require vegetable oil for frying. You stir in the water, butter or margarine, and salt which you bring to a rolling boil until the mixture coagulates into a ball on the stovetop. As you remove the small pot from the heat, you beat in all 3 eggs, until the batter is smooth. You spoon the mixture into a churro maker that you can buy on Amazon by typing in churro maker, also called a churrera that can retail at $15.99.

Recipes & Methods

Making churros with the All Recipes recipe requires heating the oil to 360 degrees F. You use another saucepan to heat the water and butter to a rolling boil as you combine the flour and salt, even as you reduce heat to low. You stir vigorously until the mixture forms a ball, at least 1 minute. You remove the mixture from the heat as you beat in the eggs, making sure the mixture looks like a ball. You can use a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip or a churro-making device.

You need to squeeze out 4 inches worth of dough onto the hot oil. You fry 3 or 4 strips at once, until golden brown, 2 minutes on each side. Then you have to remove the churro from hot oil to drain on paper towels as you stir together the sugar and cinnamon. You roll the churros in the mixture while still hot.

Making the chocolate is another task; however, as you can use cocoa, real baker’s chocolate, you melt it in a saucepan with cornstarch. Cornstarch helps the mixture solidify.

Fun Activity

Making churros is a fun, and easy activity. Some recipes do not call for eggs, but rather water and lemon zest. Making churros is fun to do in the dead of winter. Making churros is a great activity to keep yourself busy. My business idea is to start a business based on a churro franchise is not there to make people fat but to provide them with churros.

I also want to have a Spanish tapas and tapioca tea business. However, then again you do not have to fry churros because you can stick them in a Churro Maker by StarBlue that allows you to heat them in a controlled manner that is the same consistency every time.

I may have to invent the churro machine or else use the deep fryer machine. Churros are quick to become a hit when you make them for people homemade. In California and the United States at large, the churro is a long pastry that is covered in cinnamon and sugar. In Spain, they do not come covered in sugar, and also they are as common as the donut is in the United States. Churros are fun treats for the holidays or any time of year because you can make them quickly and easily.
