How to cook
Make churros
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, add water, butter, and sugar. Bring to a boil, then add vanilla.
  • Turn off heat and add flour and salt. Stir with a wooden spoon until thickened, 30 seconds. Let mixture cool for 10 minutes.
  • To cooled mixture, using a hand mixer, beat in eggs one at a time until combined.
  • Transfer mixture to a piping bag fitted with a large open star tip.
  • In a large pot over medium heat, add enough oil to come halfway up the sides and heat to 190°.
  • Holding the piping bag a few inches above the oil, carefully pipe churros into 6″ long ropes. Use kitchen scissors to cut off dough from piping bag.
  • Fry until golden, 4 to 5 minutes, turning as necessary. Fry 3 to 4 churros at a time and let oil come back to 190° before each batch.
  • Remove churros with a slotted spoon or tongs and immediately roll churros in cinnamon sugar, then place on a cooling rack.
Make chocolate dipping sauce
  • Place chocolate chips in a medium heatproof bowl.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring heavy cream to a simmer.
  • Pour hot cream over chocolate chips and let sit 2 minutes.
  • Add cinnamon and salt and whisk to combine.
  • Serve churros with chocolate dipping sauce.
