How To Make Fluffernutter Churro – Disneyland Churros

Sharing the Fluffernutter Churro that we love so much from Disneyland! This churro recipe is topped with peanut butter, marshmallow creme and mini chocolate chips. One of the best churros at the Parks from Willie’s Churro Cart.

Fluffernutter Churro

If you’ve been to Disney California Adventure Park in the last few months, you know about this life changing churro. You can find it at Willie’s Churro Cart as you enter Grizzly Peak.

While the Parks are temporarily closed, I’ve been making Disneyland Copycat recipes that have helped bring some Disney Magic inside our homes, which has been so much fun.

Over the last week or so, I’ve heard that you can find the frozen churros that Disneyland uses at their Churro Carts at Smart and Final. The brand is Tio Pepe’s. While I have not confirmed it, I will tell you that I tested them and they are AMAZING. They taste just like the ones you get served warm from Disneyland. Smart and Final offers a delivery service too!

Disneyland Churros!

You want to look for the Tio Pepe’s Frozen Churros from Smart and Final. They come in this 25 count box or a 100 count box that are quite a bit longer in length. Let me also say I was VERY skeptical about this. I am here to tell you that I was very pleasantly surprised! ….they 100% taste like the ones you get served at Disneyland, and I am a very picky critic.

Ingredients Needed To Make Disneyland Churros – Fluffernutter Style

  • Tio Pepe’s Frozen Churros found at Smart and Final
  • creamy peanut butter
  • marshmallow creme
  • mini chocolate chips

This is what the Tio Pepe’s Churros look like out of the box. Not very impressive honestly…but I went with it and preheated the oven to 400 degrees F. to try them out!

The instructions say to place the frozen churros right onto your oven rack. Next time I’ll place a cookie sheet under them to catch the drippings. I had some drippings at the bottom of my oven that starting smoking for a second. Learn from my mistake 🙂 Bake the churros for 4-5 minutes until crisp on the outsides.

With some kitchen tongs, place hot churros onto some tin foil or parchment paper and sprinkle/roll into cinnamon sugar, all sides. The cinnamon/sugar mixture comes included inside the box of frozen churros.

Once your churros are coated in the cinnamon sugar mixture place onto a serving plate. My serving plate is from the Ink and Paint Collection, found it from the Shop Disney website.

You’ll need some slightly melted peanut butter and marshmallow creme for your churros. I place the peanut butter and marshmallow creme into 2 separate heat proof bowls and microwave separately for about 30 seconds until easy to stir. Place into 2 Ziplock baggies to use as little make shift piping bags. When ready, snip a small corner and use to drizzle.

Drizzle with peanut butter then marshmallow creme evenly over tops.

    Good recipe, but churros aren’t American cuisine. The origin is from Spain and also part of Latin American culture like Mexico, Central and South American.

  2. Lori

    Any idea what we can use for the churros if we don’t have a smart and final? I don’t know of any grocery stores that carry churros like this.

    1. Hi Lori, this is the only brand of frozen churros I’ve tried so far. You can try googling Tio Pepe’s to see if there’s a delivery service perhaps?
