Churros with Hot Chocolate

Servings: 4-6

Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes

Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 100g butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • 2 cups milk
  • 200g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon together until well combined and set aside.

  3. Whisk water, butter and salt together in the pan and bring the mixture to a boil.
  4. Remove the pan from heat and stir in flour.
  5. Mix thoroughly until flour mixture forms a ball and then set aside dough for a few minutes.

  7. Transfer dough into a pastry/piping bag fitted with a large star-shaped nozzle.
  8. Using a knife or scissors to cut the dough, pipe 10cm strips of dough into the hot oil. (Make sure to pipe only 2-3 churros at a time so they won't stick together.)
  9. Fry until the churros become crispy and golden brown.
  10. Use a slotted spoon to remove the churros from heat and then drain the churros for 2 minutes on a plate lined with paper towel.
  11. Roll the warm churros in the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  12. To make the chocolate dipping sauce, place milk in a large saucepan and heat over medium heat making sure not to let it boil.
  13. Remove pan from heat, add the chopped chocolate in the pan and stir until well combined.
  14. Pour chocolate sauce into serving glasses or cups, and serve with the warm churros.

      OMG! These churros are to die for. They taste even better than the ones I have purchased at cafes. The only thing is that it’s impossible to stop eating after just 1 or 2 or 3………..
