    RECIPE: Red Velvet Churros

    Red Velvet Churros Make your life magical with these fantastic red velvet churros.


    2 cups water
    ¼ cup granulated sugar
    4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup red velvet cake mix
    2 eggs
    Canola oil, for frying
    ½ cup sugar
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    8 oz cream cheese, softened
    ½ cup confectioners' sugar
    1 tsp vanilla extract


    In a pot over medium-high heat, bring water, sugar, and butter to a boil. Add in the flour and the cake mix and stir vigorously until mixture has no streaks. Remove from heat and add the eggs, stirring until the dough becomes a ball. Transfer dough to a piping bag with a size 9 star tip.

    Pipe three to four inches strips of the dough on a baking sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes.

    Heat the canola oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Fry the red velvet churros for about three to four minutes, then remove and drain on paper towels.

    Using a straw, poke a hole through the centers of the churros to hollow out a cavity for the filling.

    On a plate, combine the cinnamon and the sugar and mix until it is a uniform color. Roll the hollowed out churros in the cinnamon sugar.

    In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Transfer filling into a piping bag with a round tip and pipe the filling into the churros.
