Red Velvet Churros


for 12 churros

  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup red velvet cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • canola oil, for frying
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ cup confectioners sugar

  8. On a plate, combine the cinnamon and the sugar and mix until it is a uniform color.
  9. Roll the hollowed out churros in the cinnamon sugar.
  10. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla, stirring until smooth.
