I recently served this delicious dessert during Superbowl Sunday. Since we were having Mexican food, with Mexican rice, re-fried beans, carne asada, and other trimmings, I thought I'd take it to the end zone with churros. However, I did it with a slight twist.
Let me make it clear that I did not make the churros. It's store bought. I bought these at Smart & Final, and it came with a packet of sugar and cinnamon inside the box. Here's the twist I am talking about....instead of rolling the churros in cinnamon and sugar, I decided to do it Pinoy (short for Filipino) style, a style we inherited from Spain. Why Spain? Well, we were a Spanish colony from 1521 to 1898. Ok, back to the churros, Pinoy style is to dip it in rich hot chocolate, which is the recipe I have here. -GG-
1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons hot water
1/4 Cup whipping cream
3 Teaspoons sugar or to taste
1. In a medium sized bowl, dissolve the cocoa powder in about 2 tablespoons hot water. Whisk it until completely dissolved.
2. In a small saucepan, heat up the cream and add the chocolate mixture. Add sugar to taste. Bring to a slow boil over low heat until it thickens to a good dipping consistency.
3. Heat up churros according to package directions, dip in chocolate and enjoy.
