Ingredients

8 cups canola oil, for frying

Chocolate Sauce:

1 1/2 cups Mexican chocolate

3/4 cup heavy cream

Churros:

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

3 medium eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a large Dutch oven or countertop fryer using a high heat thermometer, bring the canola oil to 375 degrees F.
  2. For the chocolate sauce: Bring a double broiler to a simmer over medium-low heat. Carefully melt the chocolate. Remove from the heat. With a wooden spoon or heat resistant spatula, stir in the heavy cream until the sauce is smooth. Set aside.
  3. For the churros: Set a large saucepot over medium heat. Add 1 cup water, the butter, sugar and salt. Bring to 155 degrees F, then dump in the flour and stir with a wooden spoon to incorporate and remove lumps, about 1 minute.
  4. Using the spoon, add the eggs into the batter one at a time, beating after each addition, until fully incorporated. Spoon the batter into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip and carefully pipe into the heated oil, forming 6-inch strips or free form shapes. Do not overcrowd the pot. Fry for 3 to 5 minutes, turning once as the underside browns. Remove with a spider or slotted spoon and drain on paper-towel-lined sheet tray or plate.
  5. To finish: Working quickly, combine the sugar and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl. Gently add the hot churros, tossing to coat. Serve with the chocolate dipping sauce.
