Churros & Chocolate Donut Holes

If there is one thing I know about myself is that I heart sweets....... in all forms!

The dulce tenderness of a shiny round glazed doughnuts,

soft & fluffy chocolate chip cookies spiked with sweet chunks of chocolate chips,

a huge hunk of deep dark chocolate cake with smooth & creamy chocolate icing so thick it's practically cemented to the cake!

As much as I try to control my "sweet boca (mouth), yes I said mouth, instead of  "sweet tooth" because my addiction to yummy surpasses just my little old tooth!) 

My need for sweet is a desire I can't tame, and right now the thoughts of cinnamon & sugar have been sprinkling mis dias! 

And since mi amor is to share all my sugar-coated dreams with you, I present you with another way to love a Churro!

P.S...remember that Churro Funnel Cake recipe that I just posted, remember when I promised you another recipe for that extra Churro Dough?....Well here it is!


Churro Dough

1 cinnamon stick
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
4 eggs
vegetable oil, for frying
Churro Topping & Chocolate Stuffing
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Vamos a la cocina! ( remember you can use this recipe or a boxed mix like this one.

1.For the churro dough: Heat 2 inches oil to 350 degrees F in a wide 3 1/2 to 4-quart heavy pot over high heat. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine 1 cup water and the cinnamon stick and bring to a boil. Discard the cinnamon stick. Add the butter, sugar and salt and stir until the sugar dissolves and the butter melts.

2.Turn off the heat. Using a wooden spoon, quickly stir in the flour until it is well combined and a shiny dough forms. Return the pan to medium-heat and cook the dough, stirring, until it starts to pull away from the sides of pan, about 2 minutes.

3.Transfer the dough to a medium bowl and let cool, about 5 minutes. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, stirring vigorously after each addition, until the egg is completely incorporated (the dough will be sticky.)

4. Pull of 1-inch pieces of dough and stuff them with the chocolate chips. I used about 6-7 chips and was able to cover them completely in dough. It's important that the chocolate chips be completely covered or they will ooze out as soon as they touch the grease. Fry the churro donuts, 6 at a time, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

For the cinnamon sugar topping: Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
Roll the churro donuts in cinnamon-sugar while they are still hot. It's best to eat them immediately while the chocolate stuffing is still nice and warm.

Grab a great big glass of cold leche and Disfrutalo! ( Enjoy It)
