Ingredients
Churro
  • 1½ tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 quarts oil for frying
Cinnamon Sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Chocolate dipping Sauce
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (optional)
Instructions
Cinnamon Sugar
  1. Combine ½ cup sugar with the cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Set aside.
  2. Line a plate with paper towels.
Churros
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix together the water, 1½ tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil then remove it from the heat.
  3. Stir in the flour. Mix until it forms a ball.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot set over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 degrees.
  5. Transfer the dough to a cloth pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.
  6. Pipe the dough over the oil to a length of about 4 inches. Using a very sharp knife, cut the churro into the oil.
  7. Transfer the churros to the paper towel-lined plate to drain, then roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Chocolate Sauce
  1. Place the chocolate chips and cayenne in a bowl.
  2. Warm the heavy cream in small saucepan.
