Chocolate Sauce 
  • 75g dark chocolate*, broken into pieces 
  • 125ml double cream 
Sugar coating 
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 225ml water
  • 50g unsalted butter 
  • 25g sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 150g gluten free plain flour*
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil for frying 

Notes: *Please check our online food and drink information for suitable products.


  1. To make the chocolate sauce, heat the cream in a pan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat, add the chocolate and stir it until everything is fully melted and combined. Reserve until needed.
  2. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl and set aside (this is to roll the Churros in after they are cooked).
  3. To make the Churros – Place the water, butter, sugar, and salt in a medium sized pan. Bring this mixture to the boil, then reduce the heat. Stir in the flour until fully combined, then turn off the heat.
  4. Leave the mixture to cool for a few minutes. Then place in a mixer with the egg and vanilla, and mix on high until smooth. When it’s done, transfer it into a piping bag with star nozzle.
  5. Heat up enough oil in a large pan or fryer to deep fry the churros. Use a thermometer to check the temperature of the oil. You are looking for 180C. 
  6. Pipe a 5-6-inch length churro directly into the oil, using scissors to cut them from the tip of the piping bag. You should be able to fit about 3 at a time in the fryer or pan.
  7. Let them fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, flipping to make sure it’s fried all around and golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oil, place on a paper-towel for a minute, then roll each one in the cinnamon and sugar mix.
  9. Repeat the process until all the batter is used up.
  10. Serve with the chocolate sauce, mini marsh mellows and gluten free sprinkles!
