Churros con Chocolate

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.

Dissolve the cocoa powder in 2 tablespoons hot water.
Dunk your churro in this thick and rich hot chocolate, and enjoy!
