- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter
- Pinch kosher salt
- 1 cup flour
- 4 eggs
- 3 cups peanut or veggie oil, for frying
- 9 ounces Mexican chocolate
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch salt
For the dough: In a small saucepan, combine the milk, butter and salt and bring to a medium heat. When the butter has melted, add the flour and whisk to combine. Switch over to a wooden spoon and cook the dough until it pulls away from the sides of the pan and it has a slightly sweaty sheen on it, 3 to 4 minutes.
To make the chocolate sauce: Place 1-inch of water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
For the cinnamon sugar: In a bag or large mixing bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon
In a large saucepan heat the oil to 325 degrees F.
Pipe the dough into the hot oil in sticks or desired shapes (I kinda like to make mine a little curly). This might be a little tricky at first, but you'll get the hang of it. Fry the dough until it is brown and crispy on all sides, 60 to 90 seconds total, turning frequently. Fry in batches.
Remove the churros from the oil, blot on paper towels for a second and then toss in the cinnamon sugar. Be sure to do this while the churros are still hot. Serve immediately, while churros and melted chocolate are warm.
