Cinco de Mayo Churros & Speculoos Dip!

On May 5, 1862 the Mexican army had an unlikely victory over the French in the historic Battle of Puebla.  Ever since then, Mexicans have been celebrating this big day with parades, music and (most importantly) food!  What better way to celebrate this day than with a delicious new recipe?

We are giving you TWO recipes for today! Churros — a delicious Mexican fritter — and then you can make them extra delicious by dipping them in Speculoos dip, yummo!


Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 cup water
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 quarts oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup white sugar, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball.
  2. Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pipe strips of dough into hot oil using a pastry bag. Fry until golden; drain on paper towels.
  3. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained churros in cinnamon and sugar mixture.



  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 3 Tablespoons powdered sugar

  3. Fold in cookie butter and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Fold in whipped cream, and continue folding until blended.
  5. Serve with churros or other dippers.
