Red Velvet Churros With Cream Cheese Dip

Ingredients

  • For the churros:

  • 1 cup water

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • Red food dye

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup minus 1 tablespoon flour

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

  • 3 eggs, beaten

  • Cinnamon sugar (1/2 cup granulated sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon)

  • For the cream cheese dip:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 2 to 4 tablespoons whole milk

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Make the churro dough: In a medium saucepan, combine water, butter and red dye. Bring to a boil over high heat. While stirring, gradually add the flour, cocoa powder and salt. Continue to mix until a dough ball starts to form. Cook for another minute. Remove from heat.

  2. Transfer dough to a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. While dough is still warm, beat in one egg at a time on high speed. Dough might look like it’s separating but it will come together. Mix until all eggs are combined and dough is smooth. Place in piping back with a star tip.

  3. Fry the churros: In a heavy stock pot, heat 4 inches of vegetable oil to 350 degrees. Using the piping bag, squeeze churro dough strips into oil, and cook for about 2 minutes per side. Remove from oil, and let cool slightly. Roll churros in cinnamon sugar.

  4. Make the dip: In a small bowl, combine softened cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar and pinch of salt until creamy and smooth. Serve alongside churros.
