Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 6
  • Tio Pepe's Frozen Churros or you can make your own Churros
  • Red Jolly Ranchers
  • Red Sanding Sugar
  • Red Pop Rocks
  • Food Processor
  • White Cardstock
  • Printer
  • Scissor
  • Clear Magic Tape
  • Free Printable Light Saber Handle
  1. First you print out and cut out this Free Printable Light Saber Handle! That's what makes it look like a lightsaber and also keeps your hands clean as you eat it.
  2. You just print it out on some white cardstock, cut it out.
  3. Roll them up and tape the seem shut at the back to make the handle.
  4. Super simple I know! Then you make your churros! I got the Tio Pepe's Frozen Churros From Smart and Final, which are the same churros they apparently use in the parks. They taste amazing and you get a ton in a box! You can find them in the freezer section at Smart and Final or online at the links I shared above.
  5. You can also make your own churros of course.
  6. How ever you make your churros, just make sure they are at least 10 inches long.
  7. Once you have your churros cooked up, you then start to make them red!
  8. I crushed some cherry red jolly ranchers in a food processor until it was like a powder.
  9. I sprinkled that powder onto the churros to make them red.
  10. I then sprinkled the red sanding sugar and red cherry pop rocks onto the churro.
  11. This give them their bright red color and that similar park flavor, from what I hear!
  12. You slip the red churro into your lightsaber handle and your done!
  13. Enjoy and May the 4th Be With You!
