Churros, also referred to as Spanish Donuts, are a snack that we often think of with much fondness. Maybe it’s all the pleasant memories we have of eating it as a child, making us daydream about a simpler and happier time (when the calories in each churro didn’t matter at all).

These deep-fried fritters are usually accompanied with some thick hot chocolate or café con leche. For this recipe, we decided to merge both dips together and then kicked things up a notch by using a chocolate bar from childhood we all have a soft spot for—Nestlé® Crunch®.

Think about it, what’s more comforting this rainy season than sitting snugly on your couch, while dipping some freshly made churros into a bowl of Nestlé® Crunch® Mocha Dip. This combination of chocolate and coffee will be your new favorite way to get your caffeine fix for the day.

Nestlé® Crunch® Mocha Dip with Homemade Churros

Total Time: 25 minutes / Yield: 1 cup

Ingredients for the Churros

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 eggs

Ingredients for the Mocha Dip

  • 3 bars Nestlé® Crunch®
  • 1 sachet of 3-in-1 coffee
  • ¼ cup cream

Procedure for the Churros

  1. In a saucepan, boil the water and butter together.
  2. When the water has reached its boiling point and starts to bubble, add the flour and stir continuously until it gets a dough-like texture.
  3. Cook for another 1-2 minutes or until the dough comes together in the pan. Don’t stop stirring.
  4. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  5. Using an electric mixer, mix at medium-low speed using a paddle attachment for 1-2 minutes to cool it down.
  6. Add eggs one at a time while beating the dough. Beat until smooth.
  7. Transfer to a piping bag with star tip, set aside.
  8. Heat 2.5 inches of oil in a deep frying pan. Bring the temperature up to 365 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Pipe churros mixture into desired shape and length. About 6 inches is a good size.
  10. Fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
  11. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

Procedure for the Mocha Dip

  1. In a double boiler, melt together the Nestlé® Crunch® chocolate, coffee, and cream.
  2. Set aside until ready to use.
  3. Transfer to a ramekin and serve with the churros.

    Tried this a few days ago and my parents and siblings loved it! We didn’t have crunch so we dipped it in Nutella! Also tried sprinkling a bit of cinnamon sugar on the churros, Definetely tastes better than store brought churros! ❤

    does it have to be kosher salt?

  • HungyKiwi

    Does it have to be mocha? Can’t it just be straight up chocolate?
