  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • To the flour mixture, add the oil and water and mix until just combined. The dough will be thick and sticky.
  • Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a 1/3-inch star tip nozzle.
  • Place a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat and add 2-inches of oil.
  • Allow oil to heat up to 340°F.
  • Pipe in 6-inch lengths of dough into the oil, snipping off with a scissor. Only cook 3 to 4 per batch.
  • Cook each churro for 2 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Roll occasionally during cooking.
  • Place the cooked churros on a paper-lined plate to drain off any excess oil.
  • To make the coating, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow plate. Roll each churro in the cinnamon-sugar until completely coated.
  • Make the chocolate sauce by melting the chocolate and cream together using a double boiler.
    You can also microwave the chocolate and heavy cream in 30-second bursts. Make sure to use a microwave-safe bowl.
    Stir the sauce after each burst, and continue to microwave until melted and smooth.
  • Once completely melted and smooth, stir in the vanilla extract and serve with the churros!


  • Makes 12 to 20 churros.
  • Vegetable oil used for frying is not included in the nutritional analysis.
