Instructions

  • Start by making your caramel sauce and chocolate sauce

Caramel Sauce

  • Stir sugar and water in a saucepan over low heat, until sugar dissolves.
  • Once sugar has dissolved, bring to a boil
  • Boil for 5 minutes until it turns a deep golden brown color.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in cream.
  • Set aside and let cool and thicken for at least 15 minutes.

Chocolate Sauce

  • Stir brown sugar and cocoa powder together in a small bowl.
  • In a small sauce pan, over medium-high heat, add unsalted butter and heavy whipping cream together, and bring to a soft boil.
  • Let boil for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in brown sugar and cocoa powder mixture and whisk until smooth.
  • Remove from heat, add vanilla and salt.
  • Whisk, and let sit a minute to thicken.

Churros

  • Mix sugar dusting ingredients together in a bowl, and set aside.
  • Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until boiling.
  • Whisk baking soda and all-purpose flour together.
  • Stir flour into the melted butter, then slowly add the water until you have a thick dough. You may not need all the water, add a little at a time until you have a soft ball. Remove from heat
  • Transfer to a bowl and add your 3 eggs and mix until combined.
  • Heat your oil at medium high to 375 degrees F.
  • Transfer batter into a piping bag with a star tip.
  • Pipe into the oil about a 6 inch long piece of dough. Use a knife to scrape the batter from the bag tip each time.
  • Fry for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Take them out one at a time and roll in the sugar mixture.
  • Dip into dipping sauces and enjoy
