Eggnog Churros?

Yes, these golden fried beauties are eggnog churros. I have to say, they don’t taste exactly like eggnog, but they are delicious. Eggnog is my favorite holiday drink so I wanted to do a little twist on it. I was going to make eggnog donuts which would have been a lot easier! I had a little trouble piping them out since the largest tip I have is a 1M from Wilton. If you make these I suggest using a larger piping tip to make things a little easier. The end result turned out pretty good, but honestly, anything fried and dipped in chocolate is great!

Eggnog Churros

  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

In a medium sauce pan add eggnog, vanilla and butter. Bring to a boil. Using a wooden spoon, stir in flour. Reduce heat and stir flour for about a minute until it forms a ball. Remove from heat and stir in eggs. Stir constantly with spoon to make sure egg is fully incorporated. Transfer dough to piping bag fitted with a large tip. Heat about 2 inches of oil over medium high heat until it reached about 350. Pipe churros into hot oil and fry until they are golden brown about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip once.  Drain on paper towel. Once churros have cooled a little roll in mixture os sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Serve with chocolate sauce.

Chocolate Sauce

  • 8 oz milk chocolate
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbs bourbon

Combine all ingredients and heat on medium. Whisk occasionally until melted.
