Churros with dulce de leche sauce that kids of all ages will love

Churros with dulce de leche dipRecently I had the distinct pleasure of introducing my daughters to churros. Now, churros have always been a favorite for me. There is nothing like biting into a warm freshly made churro. It's all cinnamon goodness and joy.

When I came across this recipe for churros with dulce de leche sauce, it occurred to me that I have never, not once had homemade churros. Nope, I've bought them from street vendors or panaderias, but never not once have I seen them made in someone's home. I know it happens because I have friends who make them and Instagram pictures that make me want to barge right on over, but I think it's time I welcome the churro into my own kitchen and fry up a batch of these delicious treats.

Churros with Dulce de Leche Dip


1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup milk
1 cup water
1/2 cup Country Crock® Spread
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs, beaten
Vegetable oil for frying
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


To make sauce, preheat oven to 400°. Pour condensed milk into 8 x 8-inch baking dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and place in roasting pan. Pour in hot water to reach about halfway up sides of baking dish. Bake 1 hour or until golden. Remove from oven; transfer to small bowl and whisk until smooth. Add milk and whisk until smooth. Set aside.

Put water, Country Crock® Spread and salt in medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in flour. Reduce heat to low and stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and, stirring constantly, gradually stir in eggs until mixture is smooth.

Heat 2-inches oil to 360° in large pot over medium-high heat. Combine sugar with cinnamon on plate and set aside.

Spoon dough into pastry bag fitted with large star tip. Squeeze three or four (4-inch long) strips of dough into oil. Fry, turning once, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels, then coat with cinnamon sugar. Serve with sauce.
