Make Mini Churros With Nutella: A True Delight.
We’ve found the world’s best way to enjoy Nutella: in churro form. That’s right, you can make mini churros that are covered with Nutella and served with a side of chocolate sauce! The perfect ending to any meal, these are so easy to make that even your kids can help out in the kitchen. Here’s how:
2 tablespoons Nutella
The second ingredient is Nutella, the chocolate, hazelnut spread. This is a great option if you’re looking to make your own version of churros and don’t want to buy a whole jar of Nutella. The store, bought variety contains palm oil and hydrogenated vegetable oils, which can be bad for your health if consumed too often. Plus, it has more sugar than the homemade version!
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
Use a mortar and pestle to grind the cinnamon. You can also use a coffee grinder, blender, food processor, spice grinder or mortar and pestle.
1 cup water
The water should be lukewarm, not too hot and not too cold. If you don’t have a thermometer handy, the best way to tell if the water is at the right temperature is to dip your finger into it. If you can put your finger in for 5, 10 seconds without feeling any discomfort, then it’s probably good to go!
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon butter:
- 1 tablespoon butter is equivalent to 3 teaspoons. Measurements become more precise when you use a scale and weigh the butter instead of measuring it in cups or spoons, but if you don’t have a scale handy, keep this trick in mind: 1 teaspoon = ½ ounce. So 3 teaspoons = ¾ ounce, or about 12 grams of butter (about the size of half an egg yolk). This should be enough for this recipe!
- Cut the butter into small pieces using either your hands or a knife to make sure it melts evenly and quickly when combined with water. Melt all of the cut, up pieces together in a small saucepan over low heat until melted completely, then transfer them into a bowl so they can cool slightly before adding them to the dough mixture later on.
1/4 teaspoon salt
Salt is a common ingredient in baking, cooking and preserving foods. It’s also a seasoning with a long history of use in both the kitchen and in medicine.
When using salt for cooking or baking, you often want to add it at the end of your recipe to give it time for all its flavors to blend together nicely with other seasonings before serving your dish fresh from under the broiler or oven! Salt is an important nutrient but too much can cause unpleasant side effects like nausea/vomiting which should be avoided when consuming large amounts if possible , so use sparingly if needed!
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 cup water, plus more if needed
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup all, purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Toss the flour and baking powder together in a bowl. Add 1/2 cup water, 1 egg yolk, and 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Stir the mixture until it’s smooth. Dip each churro into batter, then roll in sugar before deep frying in oil heated to 350 degrees F for 3 to 4 minutes on each side (or until golden brown). Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before topping with chocolate or cinnamon sugar (or both!).
About 1.5 cups vegetable oil
Now that you’ve gathered your ingredients, it’s time to get cooking. You’ll want to start by making sure you have everything set up and ready. This will help prevent any unnecessary stress or anxiety from ruining your evening.
- Take out a deep pot with a lid and fill it with vegetable oil.
- Bring the oil up to 350 degrees (Fahrenheit) over medium, high heat, making sure that there is plenty of room for the churros in the pan so they don’t stick together or fall apart during frying!
- Once the oil has reached temperature, remove from heat immediately and add one teaspoon (5ml) vanilla extract into each container of batter before mixing thoroughly until combined (you may also add some cinnamon if desired).
These mini churros will have you holding back from eating all of them at once!
You can use any kind of oil, but I think peanut oil works best. If you don’t have a thermometer, just watch the temperature carefully until it reaches 350°F (175°C). Next, place your churro pieces on parchment paper and let them cool down for five minutes before dunking them in the chocolate sauce. While they’re cooling, combine all your ingredients for the Nutella dipping sauce into a small bowl and stir well to combine. The next time you want to make a dessert that’s easy to share with friends and family, try this recipe. It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!
