What Are Churro Bites
Churro Bites are a smaller, bite-sized version of the traditional Spanish and Mexican dessert, churros. They are essentially pieces of dough, often sweet and flavored with vanilla or other spices, that are deep-fried until golden brown and then coated in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. The result is a deliciously crunchy exterior with a soft and warm interior.
The classic churro is a long, ridged tube of dough, but churro bites are typically cut into smaller pieces before frying, making them perfect for snacking or sharing. These little treats are often served with a side of chocolate sauce or dulce de leche for dipping, providing a delightful contrast of flavors. Whether enjoyed at a carnival, as a street food or made at home, churro bites are a beloved sweet treat that’s hard to resist.

How To Make Air Fryer Cinnamon Churro Bites
One of the best things about air fryers is that they make it easy to enjoy fried favorites without all of the fat and guilt associated with deep-frying.

In this blog post, we’ll teach you how to transform simple pantry ingredients into crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside cinnamon air fryer churro bites. So get ready as we show you just how easy it can be!
Start with room temperature puff pastry and layout on a flat surface. Next, cut the piece 3 x 4 pieces with a pizza cutter or sharp knife.
Preheat your air fryer for 5 minutes, add the puff pastry (leave space between them), and set the time for 4 minutes, air fryer setting.
Dip the hot puff pastry directly into the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Can you cook puff pastry in an Air Fryer?
Yes, this is a great recipe, and the best thing is that the air fryer and the puff pastry do all of the work for you.
The high heat circulating around the puff pastry makes it unique!
The key is to preheat your air fryer, so you start with a hot oven, which helps the puff pastry puff up almost immediately.
How To Thaw Puff Pastry
This recipe starts with thawed puff pastry, and there are two ways to thaw puff pastry. The first is to leave it in the refrigerator until thawed. The second is to leave it out on the counter until thawed.
The trick is really, especially when you leave it out on the counter, is that you need to grab it when it’s just starting to thaw.
If you leave it out on the counter for too long or even in the refrigerator for too long, it gets gummy and will start sticking to itself.
Some Other Great Coatings For Your Puff Pastry
While today, I used a simple churro coating; there are so many other ways to coat these puff pastry squares.
