When we were in Spain last year we managed to eat churros con chocolat in just about every city and town we visited. My jeans were fitting tighter by the end of the trip but I was in heaven. I loved them so much that in Madrid we even stopped to buy a Churro Maker so we could try to make them at home. I had forgotten about it until I was reorganizing my kitchen and I found it again! Turns out they sell Churro Makers on Amazon so there is no need to head to Spain to get one (unless you want to!) Ps: my friend Andrea says she just makes them with a pastry bag and a giant frosting tip. I am planning on having a Churros con Chocolat party soon but it was fun to put together this treat with my team. Have you ever made Churros with Chocolate? It was surprisingly easy. See below for the churro and and the dark chocolate recipe.
Find the churro recipe right here and the dipping sauce is here:
Thick Dark Chocolate Dipping Sauce
- 1 3.5 oz Ghiradelli Dark chocolate bar
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup half and half
Break chocolate into small pieces and place in a bowl. Heat half and half in microwave or on stovetop until steaming.
Starting with 1/4 cup, pour hot half and half over chocolate. Let stand for a minute or two to allow chocolate to soften. Whisk with a fork until chocolate is incorporated and smooth. Add additional half and half a little at a time to reach thick consistency.
Serve warm with churros.
