Pixar Fest, a celebration of all things Pixar-related, is underway at Disneyland through Sept. 3, and one of the most exciting (and delicious!) activities they’re offering during the event is the Churro Challenge. This requires you getting a special map and marking off the four churro stops that appear on it as you make your way through the park. Once you’ve collected four churros (and gotten stickers from the establishments to prove it), you’ll be given a “Monsters, Inc.” button to prove you completed the tasty challenge.
The Disneyland AP account posted a photo of the map they created to guide you to all of the tasty churro treats:

This sounds like a ton of fun. But if you can’t make it to Disney’s Pixar Fest, you don’t have to miss out on the churro-eating part of the festivities! The Churro Challenge ends on June 8, anyway. So instead of booking a last-second trip to Disneyland, plan for a staycation. Thanks to these four copycat recipes, you can dine like you’re at Disney from the comfort of your own home.
Get those aprons on and let’s get cooking, shall we?
Here are the recipes you’ll need to recreate the four flavors offered on the Churro Challenge destinations:
1. Coco Churro
The “Coco Churros” from Disney are dusted with cocoa powder to add a bit of chocolate flavor, but this recipe from Kraft takes it a step further and infuses chocolate into the churro batter — yum! Visit the Kraft website for the full recipe.
2. Churro With Lemon Dipping Sauce
The Town Square Churro Cart serves up lemon-sugar and Fruity Pebble-covered churros, but this other recipe uses lemon zest to coat the churros, giving you all of the fruity sweetness you could need. Plus, it’ll save you a trip to Disney. See the full recipe in this video from YouTuber Ryan McKay:
