Cocoa Pebbles Churros Recipe

Ingredients

  1. For the cinnamon and Cocoa Pebbles coating:
    1/2 cup Cocoa Pebbles cereal
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. For the churros:
    1 cup water
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons butter
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup Cocoa Pebbles cereal
    Vegetable oil
  1. For the dulce de leche dipping sauce:
    1/2 cup canned prepared dulce de leche
    1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

Directions

  1. In a food processor, grind all of the cereal (1 full cup) into a fine powder.
  2. Make the cinnamon and Cocoa Pebbles coating: Combine 1/2 cup ground cereal, the sugar, and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Set aside.
  3. Make the churros: Whisk together water, sugar, salt, and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil, then remove it from the heat.
  5. Stir in the flour and the rest of the ground cereal, mixing until it forms a ball.
  6. Heat vegetable oil in a large, heavy-bottomed deep pot set over medium-high heat until it reaches 375°F. There should be about 3 inches of oil in the pan as well as 3 inches above the oil to prevent it from bubbling over.
  7. Transfer the dough to a cloth or heavy-duty pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.
  8. Pipe about 6 inches of dough over the pot of oil and fry until golden-brown.
  9. Depending on the size of your pot, you can cook two or three churros at a time.
  10. Transfer the churros to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  11. Cool for about 2 minutes, then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat process with remaining dough.
  12. Make the dulce de leche dipping sauce: In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine dulce de leche and sweetened condensed milk.
  13. Heat until melted.
  14. Serve warm with prepared churros.
