What's tastier than chocolate and vanilla swirl ice cream sandwiched between 2 crispy churro wheels?

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon

  • 2 cups thickened cream
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

Steps

  1. To make ice cream combine cream, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk into a large bowl and whip until you reach stiff peaks. Drizzle with chocolate sauce. Place into a deep dish lined with plastic wrap and freeze for 3 hours. Then when you're ready use a disc cutter to cut out discs.

  5. Pipe 6-inch spirals onto a sheet lined with parchment paper, starting from the middle and going around in a circle, making sure that there are no gaps between the loops.
  6. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  7. Freeze the circles for at least 2 hours.
  8. Heat oil in a pot over high heat.
  9. Fry the circles until light golden brown, then drain them on a paper towel.
  10. Mix the sugar and the cinnamon in a separate bowl.
  11. Coat each churro disc in the cinnamon sugar mix, shaking off any excess.
  12. Place a discs of ice cream in between 2 churro discs.
