churro fries In 2019, my family and I went on a trip to Spain and became obsessed with churros. We tried various churros from all over the country. While there, we fell in love with these thin, artisan churros from a place called the Chocolatería 1902. After what has felt like a lifetime since our last vacation, I decided to bring a little taste of Madrid home. Today’s post is my very own twist on authentic, artisan churros with a Churro Fries Charcuterie Board. 

Churro Fries Charcuterie Board

This Churro Fries Charcuterie Board begins with a simple homemade churro recipe. In Spain, churros are traditionally served with chocolate to dip. For the charcuterie board, I included three churro dips including creamy peanut butter dip, a rich chocolate dip and a sweet and decadent caramel dip. churro fries All three dips featured on this Churro Fries Charcuterie Board were made with Karo® Syrup. Karo Syrup is a versatile ingredient that perfects anything from delicious marshmallows, fudges, caramels, pies and scotcheroos to sticky cinnamon rolls, sauces and glazes. Karo Syrup delivers a smooth, amazing texture with balanced sweetness that lets the true flavor of other ingredients shine through. karo syrup

Servings: 6

Ingredients

For Churros

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 TSP granulated sugar
  • 1/4 TSP Salt
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 egg

For Churros

  • Heat oil in large pot (enough to cover/deep fry churros) over medium heat.
  • To prepare churro batter, combine water, butter, sugar and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add flour and reduce heat. Cook and stir until full mixed and batter is smooth.

  • Serve warm with dipping sauces.
The board is complete with an assortment of fun toppings and treats.  I added two types of sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, mini marshmallows and fresh strawberries.  My Churro Fries Charcuterie Board is the perfect way to gather around something great! It’s been a year of transition and it’s time to gather with good company and indulge in great food. This board is the grand finale for a globally-inspired dinner at home and is an excellent dessert option for game nights, sleepovers and celebrations. churro fries Looking for even more churro recipes?
