How to Make Oreo “Churros” at Home
Oreos and churros: The two are delicious on their own, but what happens if the desserts merge? Chocolaty, fried perfection stuffed with a creamy center, that’s what.
Oreo recently announced it was producing Oreo churros to be sold at restaurants and grocery stores. But if you want to make your own, BuzzFeed churns out a delicious version of the dessert mashup in this video.
The cookie-flavored churros are made by repurposing the chocolate Oreo cookie into a fried dough rolled in cinnamon sugar and the sweet cream filling into a melted, sugary frosting.
Good luck resisting the urge to eat the batter before filling the chocolate churros with cream.
Check out the recipe below:
1 package Oreos
2 cups water
4 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
Oil for frying
Using two bowls, separate the Oreos into cookies and cream. Then crush the cookies into a fine crumb using a food processor.
In a pot, add water, butter, and sugar and bring to a boil on the stovetop. Remove from heat and add flour and crushed Oreo cookies. Mix until dough forms a ball, then add eggs, stirring until everything is thoroughly mixed.
Place dough into a piping bag with a star tip and pipe onto a greased plate or tray in 4-inch lengths. Freeze for 30 minutes.
Heat oil, then fry each Oreo churro until evenly cooked, about four minutes per side. Drain on paper towels, then roll churros in cinnamon sugar. Poke a hole through each churro with a straw to create the opening for the filling.
Microwave the Oreo cream for 15 seconds and place into a pastry bag. Pipe Oreo cream into each churro, filling completely.
