Copy Cat Disney Park Churros

Living in Florida has many advantages. We are sunny and warm almost all year round. We have some of the world’s most incredible theme parks within driving distance. We can see Mickey Mouse just about whenever we want to…I mean, does it get any better than that?! Well, expect when we can’t visit our favorite theme parks. Since Disney Parks parks are temporarily closed at the moment, I know we are all missing our favorite Disney magical moments and of course, our favorite Disney eats and treats.

So, when the fabulous folks at Disney emailed me their famous churro recipe, I knew we had to recreate it at home as soon as possible. My daughter and son were so excited they even helped make these Copy Cat Disney Churros. This recipe is inspired by the delicious snack that can be found at all of Disney parks across the globe.

This Disney churro recipe serves four people, but we doubled it and gave a batch to our friends. It is a perfect snack to enjoy while spending some quality family time together, maybe while watching your favorite Disney movie 🙂

We had all the ingredients at home to make these yummy Disney churros, we even made my easy homemade caramel sauce for dipping. SO GOOD.

What we didn’t have was a big enough star tip for our piping bag. All of our tips were more for frosting, so after a couple attempts of trying to the churro dough out of the frosting tips to create the world’s smallest churros, we gave up and got a little more hands on 😉

My daughter and I were in charge or making the churros into whatever shape we wanted. We tried making hearts, circles, sticks and then we decided that the typical donut shape was the easiest. It also cooked really evenly that way. If you end up making your own shapes as well, just be sure to keep the dough thin (think of the thickness of a churro) because if you make it too thick, it will take longer to cook.

When we made our Copy Cat Disney Churros, my daughter was in charge of making the shapes, I was in charge of the frying, and my son was in charge of coating our churros in cinnamon sugar. We actually had a lot of fun making these together and we did decide that they were almost as good as Disney’s. I think if we were eating them at Epcot standing outside of Mexico, we would have decided that they were exactly the same. Something about that Disney Magic that just makes everything just a bit better.

Speaking of Disney magic…this is how their Churro Bites turned out:

Notes

We didn't have a large enough star tip so we were unable to use the piping bag to make our churros, so we simply used our hands and formed the dough into bite-sized shapes.  The shapes we made varied from sticks, to circles, to donut-shapes.
We didn't have a thermometer to tell us when the oil reached 350 degrees, so I waited until I saw one or two bubbles starting to form in the oil and slowly dropped our churros into the oil.  If you are using your hands, BE VERY CAREFUL, THE OIL IS VERY, VERY HOT.
