– Spanish Churros Recipe with Homemade Chocolate Sauce –

Everybody that has visited Spain at least once knows how much Spaniards love their churros. You will find them everywhere, from street-side vendors to coffee shops. This Spanish Churros Recipe with Homemade Chocolate Sauce is an authentic take on the classic Spanish staple. Made with simple ingredients yet loaded with great flavor and an incredibly crunchy texture. In Spain we like to eat these churros for breakfast on the weekends or as an afternoon snack for merienda. With one taste of these churros you will get hooked too. This Spanish Churros Recipe with Homemade Chocolate Sauce is a great treat for the whole family and the kiddos are gonna love them!

Easy to Make Churros!

The best part about this Spanish Churros Recipe with Homemade Chocolate Sauce is how easy it is to make. You’re talking about less than 25 minutes from starting to serving hot and fresh churros! This is the Churrera I used to make my churros. It’s made in Spain, made of high-quality materials and fairly priced. Otherwise you can use a piping bag or ziplock bag to make these churros, yet I don’t recommend it since the churros won’t cook the same. Check out the video below on how to make this Spanish Churros Recipe with Homemade Chocolate Sauce or print out the recipe card below. Salud!

Spanish Churros with Homemade Chocolate Sauce

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 2
Author Albert Bevia @ Spain on a Fork



  • -1 cup water
  • -1 cup all-purpose flour
  • -1/2 tsp sea salt


  • -1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • -2 tbsp organic oat milk
  • -1/4 tsp vanilla extract


  • -1/2 cup virgin Spanish olive oil
  • white sugar to coat


  1. Add 1 cup of water into a sauce pan along with 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and heat it with a medium-high heat, once it comes to a light boil remove from the heat and add 1 cup of all-purpose flour into the sauce pan and mix vigorously until you form a sticky dough, then transfer the dough onto a flat surface and let cool for about a minute, then lightly knead the dough for 1-2 minutes until you form a compact dough
  2. Transfer the dough into a churrera or piping pag and start making the churros, the ideal length is between 5-6 inches, make sure to have a piece of parchment paper underneath so the churros don't stick
  3. Heat a small non-stick frying pan with a medium heat and add 1/2 cup virgin olive oil, once the oil get's piping hot start adding the churros, you want to cook them in batches that way you don't over-crowd the pan, fry them between 5-6 minutes until golden brown and turn them occasionally, then transfer to a plate with paper towels
  4. Roll the cooked churros on white sugar to coat them and transfer to a plate
  5. To make the chocolate sauce add 1 cup of water to a sauce pan and heat with a medium-high heat, once it comes to a boil place a bowl on top and add 1/4 cup of chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons milk and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, mix until the chocolate has melted and you form a sauce, about 3 minutes, then remove from the heat, continue to mix and trasfer the sauce into a smaller bowl, place the bowl on the plate with the churros and serve at once
  6. Enjoy!

    I thought this recipe helped me learn a lot and it was very easy to read and understand. Frying the churros was very difficult, and we worried that they were raw because they were cooking much faster then the directions said they would. At first we didn’t think they would turn out well because the dough did not taste very good and we thought the ingredients were too simple, but they tasted amazing! Mucho gracias

    We’ve never made Churros before, and they were so fun to make! They were quick and easy, but they taste really good! I learned that you can easily substitute when you don’t have the items you need. (example we didn’t have a deep fryer but used a pan instead) Thank you for sharing the recipe and teaching us that the most important step is to measure your ingredients carefully and accurate. 🙂 -Hailey, Sophia, Lily

    I adore Churros and enjoy them everytime I am in Spain. I had them a few weeks ago when I was in Malaga visiting friends. So delicious, I didn’t ever think to make them at home but you make them look so easy so I am going to give them a go.

    I had churros once and they were amazing, I have never thought about making them at home though, I thought I would need some special equipment. Good to know that a piping bag would do as well.

      Yes and they make the perfect breakfast on the weekends! thanks for the comment Adina 🙂

    I’ve never made churros but they look oh so tempting! I’m surprised by how quick and easy they are to make, and I would definitely have to serve them with that homemade chocolate sauce! Yum! Thanks for sharing!
