About Disney Churro Bites

Disney Parks has done it again! Not only have they released the recipe for their famous Dole Whip, but now you can make your own Disney Churro Bites right at home!

I love a good Disneyland Churro, and already have a yummy recipe for them here on this site. Churros are such a great snack/dessert, because you can change them up and add flavors to make them different every time you eat them.

Try adding some colored sugar to make your own Lightsaber Churros or add some cookie crumbs to make Cookie Butter Christmas Churros.

Disney’s original recipe recipe changes them up into bite-sized portions. My kids loved them!

Where to Get Churro Bites at Walt Disney World

The first time we had Disney Churro Bites was at Disney World. They are available at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe which is located in Frontierland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

 At Pecos Bill’s the mini churros are served with chocolate sauce and let me tell you, the combination tastes like heaven. When we made our own churro bites, we had to add our own chocolate dipping sauce as well. You can use a jar of hot fudge sold at the grocery store with ice cream toppings, or you can make your own chocolate ganache in the microwave, using this recipe

This recipe makes a lot of mini churros! We had more than enough for the five of us and even had some leftovers. I hope they can bring a little taste of Disney magic to your home.

How to Store Leftovers

Made too many Disney Churro Bites? No worries! Storing leftovers is a breeze. Pop them in an airtight container and they’ll retain their crispness for days. If they seem a bit soft when you’re ready to indulge again, just pop them in the oven for a few minutes to bring back that delightful crunch.

This way, the magic of Disneyland Churros isn’t just a one-time wonder. You, my fellow Disney enthusiasts, can relive the joy of those ever-popular Disney churros bites, making every day feel a little bit more like you’re wandering through the Most Magical Place on Earth.

Dipping Sauce Ideas

Nothing complements those crispy, sugary Disney Churro Bites like the perfect dipping sauce. Here’s where you can truly bring the magic of Disney Parks into your home kitchen by getting creative with these delightful pairings:

  • Traditional Chocolate Ganache: A classic that never disappoints, bringing you closer to the very essence of Disneyland churros. 
  • Luxurious Caramel Sauce: For those who dream of an extra layer of sweetness, mirroring the enchantment of the Most Magical Place on Earth. 
  • Peanut Butter Whipped Cream: For a decadent flavor, try dipping your churro bites in this homemade Peanut Butter Whipped Cream.
  • Sweet Cream Cheese Sauce: This sauce reminds me of a mix between cream cheese frosting and no bake cheesecake. It’s delicious served with these bites.

Don’t shy away from mixing and matching these ideas or creating your very own Disney-inspired concoctions. Each dip can transform your homemade churro bites into a new adventure, making every bite a moment to cherish.
