Homemade Churro Smores

An absolute favorite summer treat are Smores! But the traditional store bought version can get boring (at least for me). I’ve been making my own marshmallows for 2 years now and I love have the versatility in this homemade confection. When I learned of the Feed Feed and Ghirardellis smore contest, I wanted to create my homemade churro smores!

This dessert does take some effort, but it is TOTALLY worth it! You really can’t get any better than sandwiching a gooey, toasted marshmallow in between a fried sweet dough thats rolled in cinnamon sugar! Also, don’t forget the chocolate. I used a salted caramel dark chocolate in these smores, but feel free to use whatever it is you like 🙂

  2. Bring the mixture to a boil then remove it from the heat.
  3. Stir in the flour. Mix until it forms a ball.

You will need a candy thermometer to make the marshmallows. They are easily found at kitchen stores and on amazon. For the churros, you will need a star icing tip. These are also readily available.
