Where Churros came from?
Churros are widely known as a Spanish snack, but some historians say that Portuguese merchants got it
from a Chinese pastry called “Youtiao”, salty strips of fried dough. Some say that it came from Spanish shepherds who fried dough in replacement for fresh bread, and named it after the native Churra sheep’s rigged horns.

To make the churros, mix 1 cup of water, 6 tbsp. of butter, and 2 tbsp. of granulated sugar in a saucepan
over medium heat. Bring it to a boil, then add vanilla. Turn off the heat, then add 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1 tsp. of salt. Mix then let it cool for 10 minutes.
When it’s cooled down, mix in 2 eggs then transfer your batter to a regular piping bag with a large open star tip.

Prepare your large pot and pour in your vegetable oil then heat it until you see smoke, that’s when you’ll
know it’s hot enough. Hold your StarBlue Churro Maker or regular piping bag a few inches above the oil, and pipe in your batter. Cut the batter with scissors to your desired length. Fry them until golden brown then place them in a bowl filled with cinnamon sugar to coat it with.
For the dipping sauce, heat 3/4 cup of heavy cream in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer. Pour it in a
bowl of chocolate chips then mix. Make sure that your bowl is heatproof! You can also add in salt and cinnamon depending on your taste. And you’re done! Enjoy!
