For the Churro Dough:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 quarts of vegetable oil (for frying)

For the Sweet and Salty Coating:

  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

For the Salted Caramel Sauce:

  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 2/3 cup of heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt


  1. Prepare the Churro Dough:
    • In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Bring it to a boil over medium-high heat.
    • Remove the mixture from heat and stir in the flour until the dough comes together.
    • Heat 2 quarts of vegetable oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    • Spoon the churro dough into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe 1-inch strips of dough into the hot oil.
  2. Fry the Churro Bites:
    • Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Coat with Sweet and Salty Mixture:
    • In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup of sugar, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Toss the fried churros in the mixture to coat them evenly.
  4. Prepare the Salted Caramel Sauce:
    • In a heavy saucepan, combine 1 cup of granulated sugar and 1/4 cup of water over medium heat.
    • Stir until the sugar is dissolved, then stop stirring and let it cook until it reaches a deep amber color.
    • Remove from heat and carefully stir in the heavy cream. Be cautious, as the mixture will bubble up.
    • Stir in the butter and 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt until the sauce is smooth and creamy.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Drizzle the churro bites with the salted caramel sauce and serve them warm.


Chocolate Lover’s Delight:

For a decadent twist, melt some semi-sweet chocolate and dip the churro bites into it after frying. Let them cool and harden for a chocolatey, crunchy layer that perfectly complements the sweet and salty core.


  1. Temperature Matters: Ensure your frying oil is at the right temperature (375 degrees F). Too hot, and the churros will brown quickly on the outside but remain raw on the inside. Too cool, and they’ll absorb excess oil, becoming greasy.
  2. Work Quickly: When coating the churro bites with the sweet and salty mixture, do it while they’re still warm. The coating adheres better when the churros are fresh out of the fryer.
  3. Safety First: When making the salted caramel sauce, be careful as hot sugar can cause severe burns. Keep a close eye on it during the cooking process.
  4. Serve Fresh: Churros are at their best when freshly made. Enjoy them right away for that perfect combination of crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Sweet and Salty Churro Bites are the epitome of a sweet and salty flavor explosion. The crispy churro exterior, coated in a sugar and cinnamon mixture with a hint of sea salt, perfectly complements the rich and velvety salted caramel sauce. The contrast of sweet and salty, crunchy and smooth, makes every bite an indulgent experience.
