Expert Tips

  • I dont’ recommend using flaky biscuits – they’ll fall apart. Use regular buttermilk or southern style Grands or other equivalent.
  • These are best served immediately. They’ll soften over time, and get soggy from the butter and sugar.
  • If you want to substitute crescent rolls, make my Churro Crescent Rolls instead!

  • Preheat a waffle maker (mine has a 350°F setting).
  • Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Place melted butter in a bowl. Stir cinnamon and sugar in an other bowl. Line a cookie sheet with paper towels.
  • Place biscuit pieces into your waffle iron, separating them a little so they won’t stick together. How many batches you have to make depends on the size of your waffle iron. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the pieces are golden brown. Carefully remove them (they’re HOT!), dip them in the butter and coat with cinnamon sugar.
  • These are best eaten right away or while they’re still hot. They get soft once they cool. They’re still good though!
  • To make the chocolate ganache for dipping: place heavy whipping cream in a measuring cup or small bowl. Add chocolate chips and microwave for 45-60 seconds. Whisk until smooth, heating more as needed to get all the chocolate melted. Let cool at room temperature.

Recipe Notes

  • I dont’ recommend using flaky biscuits – they’ll fall apart. Use regular buttermilk or southern style Grands or other equivalent.
  • These are best served immediately. They’ll soften over time, and get soggy from the butter and sugar.
  • If you want to substitute crescent rolls, make my Churro Crescent Rolls instead!

  1. I have to laugh at the statement “Without all the calories from the oil”. The butter is so much better for you? How much difference is there if you fry or dip them in butter as far as health goes? Don’t get me wrong, I love Churros and eat my fair share of them mostly fried. I really love your recipes but that made me laugh.

    1. In general frying is less healthy because the fat from the oil seeps into the product. It’s why air fryers are so popular!

  2. that fair looks PHENOM!!! ahhh I love fair food!

    and these churro bites are totally fantastic, and I could easily become addicted!

  3. I’m so glad I found this recipe on Pinterest!!!! I am allergic to eggs and can never make traditional waffles. However, I am able to eat canned biscuits and LOVE all things cinnamon sugar. This will be a great surprise for my breakfast loving husband who is always deprived of homemade baked goods. Thank you so much!!!

  4. This would be perfect for my niece, who’s been agitating for a phone (and the churro bites would be perfect for both of us 😉

  5. Love your recipies. so inventive yet easy. Like why didn’t I think of that. Keep them comming, we love them.
