Here's what you'll need for the churros:
❤️ 1 cup all-purpose flour
❤️ 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
❤️ ⅓ cup butter
❤️ 1 tbsp olive oil
❤️ 1 cup water
❤️ ¼ cup brown sugar
❤️ 2 tsp red food coloring

Here's what you'll need for the cream cheese dip:
❤️ 8 oz cream cheese
❤️ 2 tbsp powdered sugar
❤️ 2 tbsp Red Velvet Granola Butter®
❤️ 1-2 tbsp milk of choice
Here's what you'll do:
❤️ Preheat the oven to 390F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set side.
❤️ In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and cocoa powder; set aside.
❤️ In a medium saucepan, melt together the butter and oil. Add in the water, brown sugar, food coloring, and salt, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes, mixing occasionally. Add in the flour and cocoa mixture, and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.
❤️ Take off of the heat and allow the mixture to cool for 10 minutes.
❤️ Add in the vanilla and the egg and quickly beat until completely incorporated (it’s going to look like it’s not coming together, but just keep beating)!
❤️ Put the dough into a piping bag with a star tip. Squeeze the dough into heart shapes onto the prepared baking sheet.
❤️ Bake for 10 min, or until crispy to the touch. Then, reduce the heat on the oven to 350F, and bake for another 8-11 minutes.
❤️ While they are baking, beat together the ingredients for the cream cheese dip in a medium bowl.
❤️ Remove the churros from the oven and coat in the granulated sugar immediately.
❤️ Serve with the red velvet cream cheese dip. Enjoy, lovers!
