Churros with Chocolate Dipping Sauce

Churros and Chocolate Dipping Sauce


Churros ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 stick or ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • Canola oil for frying

Cinnamon Sugar ingredients

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch cloves

Chocolate Dipping Sauce ingredients

  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Make the Churros

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the water, butter, cinnamon, and cloves. Bring to a boil and stir in flour and sugar. Mix with a wooden spoon and, reducing the heat to low, continue cooking for about 1 minute. Mixture will form a ball.
  • Remove the dough from the heat, and stir in the 5 eggs, one at a time, making sure each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a heavy pot, heat about 2 inches of canola oil until the temperature reaches about 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spoon some of the churro dough into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip or a plastic freezer bag with a hole cut in one corner.
  • Squeeze approximately a 4 inch strip of dough into the hot oil, cutting it from the pastry bag with a small knife. Repeat, adding churro dough until there are about 4 strips frying.
  • Fry the churros until golden brown, about 5 minutes, turning them over halfway through.
  • While the churros are frying, combine cinnamon sugar ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Transfer the cooked churros to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  • Dredge each churro in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place onto a serving platter.

Make the Chocolate Dipping Sauce

  • In a small saucepan, bring the heavy cream to a boil. Remove from heat, and add the chocolate chips, whisking gently until the chocolate melts.
  • Pour into a serving bowl.
  • Dip churros in sauce and enjoy.
