Churros with  Bon Appétit Chocolate Sauce

Ingredients:

Churros

 

 

 

 

 

Bon Appétit chocolate sauce:

Equipment: a cloth pastry bag or heavy-duty plastic pastry bag; a large star pastry tip 


Instructions:

Make the churros:

1. Combine 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Set aside. Line a plate with paper towels.

2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the water, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring the mixture to a boil then remove it from the heat. Stir in the flour, mixing until it forms a ball.

3. Heat 3 to 4 inches of vegetable oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot set over medium-high heat until it reaches 375ºF. (There should be a minimum of 3 inches above the oil to prevent it from bubbling over.)

4. Transfer the dough to a cloth pastry bag or heavy-duty plastic bag fitted with a large star tip.

5. Pipe the dough over the pot of oil to a length of about 4 inches, then using scissors or a sharp knife, cut it so it releases into the oil. (Stand back to avoid any splatters.) Pipe two to three churros into the oil at a time, frying them until they're golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the churros to the paper towel-lined plate to drain for 2 minutes, then roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat the frying and coating process with the remaining dough.

6. Serve the churros with the warm chocolate sauce (Bon Appétit) 

 Make the Bon Appétit chocolate sauce:

1. Place the chopped chocolate in a small bowl.

2. Warm the heavy cream in small saucepan. (Do not let it boil.) Pour the heavy cream over the chopped chocolate. Let it sit for 1 minute then stir to combine.
