Hazelnut Churros

Churros are just fine with a dusting of cinnamon and sugar, but if you can add Nutella, why wouldn't you?


  • 50 grams unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 100 grams flour
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 100 grams Nutella
  • 50 grams roasted hazelnuts
  • 2 tablespoons popping candy
  • 2 liters oil for deep frying
  • 50 grams caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon powder


  1. Place the butter in a pan with water and milk, sugar and salt.
  2. Bring to boil and add the flour, beat to form a paste.
  3. Gradually incorporate the eggs little by little to get a thick paste.
  4. Place into a piping bag with 1.5 centimeters fluted nozzle and pipe into 4 centimeters lengths.
  5. Pop this into the freezer to firm up or pipe the mixture directly into the oil, pre-heated to 160C, snipping 4 centimeters segments as you go.
  6. After 2 minutes or so, drain the churros on kitchen paper and toss in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  7. Grab a straw and push all the way through.
  8. Place the Nutella in a piping bag and soften for 15 seconds in a microwave.
  9. Pipe the chocolate into the churros and top with hazelnuts and popping candy.
