Maple Sugar Churros

  • SERVES: 6
  • PREP: 5 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 25 minutes

A cozy fried treat perfect for fall.

We love a fall donut. And we love churros even more: the fun-to-eat street-food version of fried dough common throughout Latin America. This recipe starts simply—by mixing up a warm dough in a saucepan. Then it gets piped into hot oil and fried in our Cravings Wok into beautiful star-shaped strands until golden brown. To finish, we’ve dusted it with our Maple Doughnut seasoning from our Sweet Popcorn Seasoning Trio and served it with chocolate sauce. Trust us, this recipe is pretty sweet.

Sweet Popcorn Seasoning Trio
Sweet Popcorn Seasoning Trio

We're still not sure how we were able to bottle those flavors, but we did. Our go-to is popcorn, but we highly encourage experimenting with things like oatmeal, trail mix, or even buttered toast. Blueberry Muffin: There are actually little blueberry pieces! Maple Doughnuts: Highly recommend this paired with French Toast. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: Sprinkle on yogurt. Trust us.
