Disneyland Holiday Green Churros


Hello beautiful Disney people!

I am one of those people who would celebrate Christmas all year round. Seriously I would tinsel the city up if they would let me do it. I would do it anyways, but that would be considered littering. Apparently they frown upon on that. Even shinny glittery littering.

Today we are going to make some Holiday Green Churros from Disneyland. If you have been to the parks recently you know Disney loves themselves a churro. Want a peppermint churro? They got it. Red, green, purple… they have it. I’m sure there is a pink lemonade fruity cereal churro in the parks right now. You get the picture, they love churros. Probably because they are cheap to make and they have an iconic status in the parks. I know some people who think Disneyland is the only place in the world to get one.

Today we are making the green ones. I don’t know if the green sprinkles really added any taste. I couldn’t find the complete official recipe, but the churro part is the real deal. I just couldn’t find one that talked about how much cinnamon/sugar to add, if any to be honest. So I guessed but I think it tastes the same.



  • 1 cup of water

  • 3 eggs

  • 4 oz butter

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 1/4 cups flour

  • Cinnamon/Sugar Mix

  • Green sand sprinkles
  • 1 1/2 cup oil


  1. Prepare three plates. One plate with paper towel, one with cinnamon/sugar/green sprinkles mixed and one with nothing. Set them aside.

  2. In a medium saucepot over medium heat, combine the water, butter, salt, and cinnamon. Bring to a rolling boil (a really fast super boil).

  3. Reduce the heat to low and add the flour. Stir very quickly. Stir until the dough forms a ball.

  4. Remove the saucepot from the heat and set aside. Allow to cool down for 5-7 minutes. It won’t be cold by that point. It will just be cooler. I like to place mine in a stand mixer and turn the paddle on low. It will allow the steam to escape the dough.

  5. Add the eggs one at a time, mix well between each egg. Do not worry if the dough pulls apart between additions. Just keep mixing and the dough will come back together. I promise you.

  6. Place the mixture in a piping bag with a large star tip.

  7. In a skillet, heat 1 1/2 cups of oil. I actually ended up using twice that amount.

  8. Squeeze a 5-inch strip of dough into the oil. I used scissors to cut the dough from the piping bag. Be careful to not let it splash.

  9. Fry until golden brown on all sides. This took about 6 minutes per churro.

  10. Drain the churros on the plate with the paper towel.

  11. Once drained, roll the churro in the cinnamon/sugar/green sprinkle plate.

  12. Place on the third plate to serve.

The churros in the parks have more green sprinkles but I used an entire bottle on these. I’ve seen different amount of coverage and I think this are pretty in the middle  sprinkles level,so I’m happy with them.

Happy Churroing everyone!
