Ingredients

Churro Dough:
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 eggs
Cinnamon-Sugar:
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Mexican Chocolate Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 (3.2-ounce) disks Mexican chocolate, chopped

Directions

For the churro dough: Heat 2 inches oil to 350 degrees F in a wide 3 1/2 to 4-quart heavy pot over high heat.

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine 1 cup water and the cinnamon stick and bring to a boil. Discard the cinnamon stick. Add the butter, sugar and salt and stir until the sugar dissolves and the butter melts. Turn off the heat. Using a wooden spoon, quickly stir in the flour until it is well combined and a shiny dough forms. Return the pan to medium-heat and cook the dough, stirring, until it starts to pull away from the sides of pan, about 2 minutes. Transfer the dough to a medium bowl and let cool, about 5 minutes. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, stirring vigorously after each addition, until the egg is completely incorporated (the dough will be sticky.)

Transfer the dough to a pastry bag and pipe 1-inch pieces, cutting the dough with scissors every inch, into the hot oil. Fry the churro bites, 6 at a time, turning occasionally, until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per batch. Drain on paper towels. Return the oil to 350 degrees F between batches.

For the cinnamon sugar: Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.

For the Mexican chocolate sauce: Bring the heavy cream to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat and add the chopped chocolate, stirring until completely dissolved. Serve warm as a dipping sauce for the churro bites.

Roll the warm churro bites in the cinnamon-sugar. Serve Mexican chocolate sauce alongside for dipping churro bites.
