As far as Spanish desserts go, none of them come even close to churros. Made with fried dough and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, churros are truly a sweet delight, but they’ll be just as delicious as the dip you serve them with. There are countless dipping sauce options to choose from, and these three are timeless classics.


Churros and chocolate are a match made in heaven, and this is the first flavor combo everyone thinks of when someone mentions this Spanish dessert. Hot chocolate and chocolate ganache are the most obvious options, but you should also try eating them with traditional Spanish and Mexican drinks, such as champurrado.

Dulce de Leche

Dulce de leche is another popular dip of Latin American origin that you can use as a dip for your churros. It’s made with caramelized milk, and it will bring the best out of your churros, just like many other caramel-based dips, such as the Mexican sauce, cajeta.

Crème Anglaise

Crème anglaise is commonly known as custard sauce—sugar, egg yolks, hot milk, and vanilla extract are usually used in its making. It’s used as a base in many desserts, from ice cream to crème brûlée, but you can also use it as a dip for your churros.
