The Most Amazing Red Velvet Churros

Make Your Life Magical With These Fantastic Red Velvet Churros...

We've all had the delicious original churro, but we're mixing things up a bit! Try this red velvet alternative, and we dare you to eat just one.

You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup red velvet cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • Canola oil, for frying
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a pot over medium-high heat, bring water, sugar, and butter to a boil. Add in the flour and the cake mix and stir vigorously until mixture has no streaks. Remove from heat and add the eggs, stirring until the dough becomes a ball. Transfer dough to a piping bag with a size 9 star tip.
  2. Pipe three to four inches strips of the dough on a baking sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat the canola oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Fry the red velvet churros for about three to four minutes, then remove and drain on paper towels.
  4. Using a straw, poke a hole through the centers of the churros to hollow out a cavity for the filling.
  5. On a plate, combine the cinnamon and the sugar and mix until it is a uniform color. Roll the hollowed out churros in the cinnamon sugar.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Transfer filling into a piping bag with a round tip and pipe the filling into the churros.
  7. Serve!
