Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to ditch the conventional box of chocolates and express your love in a more personal, and delicious, manner.

Imagine the look on your boyfriend’s face when you serve him homemade heart-shaped churros, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and sprinkled with a touch of sweetness.

Not only do these treats taste like love, but they’re also a fun way to add a personal touch to your Valentine’s celebration. Here’s how to whip up this delightful surprise.

Ingredients for heart-shaped churros

  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Oil for frying
  • For the sugar coating:
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Cooking method

Prepare the churro dough

  • In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of water, ¼ cup unsalted butter, ½ tsp salt, and 2 tbsp granulated sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and stir in 1 cup of all-purpose flour.

Continue stirring vigorously until the mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and let it cool for a few minutes.

Add eggs and vanilla

  • Beat the eggs one at a time into the dough mixture, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. After all the eggs have been added, stir in ½ tsp vanilla extract. The dough should be smooth and shiny.

Shape the churros

  • Spoon the churro dough into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe heart shapes onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • If you’re not using a cookie cutter as a guide, pipe the dough into “V” shapes and then press the ends together to form hearts.
  • Freeze for about 30 minutes to help the hearts maintain their shape during frying.

Prepare for frying

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large pan to 375°F (190°C). Make sure there’s enough oil so the churros can be completely submerged.

Fry the churros

  • Fry the churros in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook until they are golden brown and crispy, about 2 to 4 minutes on each side. Use a slotted spoon to remove the churros and drain them on a paper towel-lined plate.

Coat with sugar

  • Mix ½ cup granulated sugar with 1 tsp ground cinnamon in a shallow dish. Roll the warm churros in the sugar mixture until they are evenly coated.

Serve and enjoy

  • Serve the heart-shaped churros warm with your choice of dipping sauces, such as chocolate, caramel, or strawberry sauce.

These heart-shaped churros are a sweet and thoughtful treat to share with your boyfriend on Valentine’s Day, showing him just how much you care with every delicious bite.
