Coat in your cinnamon sugar mixture, thoroughly coat, don't be afraid, really gently roll it around in the stuff, nice thick coating is your goal. Lay it on thick.
Now poke an X in the puff bottoms -- sounds kinky to me--with a knife, and place back on your cookie sheet.
Set in your 200 degree oven for, get this, 45 minutes to 3 hours, until they crisp. It took my guys about 2 1/2 hours.. Don't worry, It will be worth it. In the meantime, don't have a cow, I have other things for you to do.
Make your warm chocolate dipping sauce.
Heat your bittersweet chocolate, 2 cups whole milk ( I used 1 %) wow, aren't I the health conscious one?
your sugar, and instant espresso,in a medium sized saucepan until chocolate melts. Now mix the cornstarchwith the water and whisk into the chocolate until it thickens.. it thickens quickly. Done!
Take your gorgeous churro puffs put of the oven,
Stop and look, just look, at the man you married,wonder why, then beat him with a wet noodle for trying to mess up your picture.
Drizzle your churro puffs with that silky smooth, warm chocolate dipping sauce you made..
yes, I know its a dipping sauce, but I like to drizzle it on, AND dip, OK? Got a problem with that? Didn't think so.. And, yes, I know I am using a gravy boat for my dipping sauce, forgive me and please just remember, and never forget, I am just the girl -who loves to cook and bake-next door type of person!!
Dip some raspberries in the chocolate too, tastes yummy.
Will the churro puffs taste good with melted vanilla ice cream, Id dare say yes.
How about some drizzled honey, You bet.
Whipped cream, oh yeah, baby.
Shot of Kahlua, now you're talking.
Use the extra warm chocolate sauce for what you wish. I know what we(FFH and I) will be using it for. --OMG--Get your minds out of the gutter people-- we will be using it for hot chocolate actually, spiked, that is.
Monica, of Lick the Bowl Good was the inspiration for this recipe. After reading about the churros on her blog, I was craving them. Thanks for the calories, Monica. Oh, FFH thanks you too, but I'm not saying why.
My Kitchen Snippets has a more traditional (fried)recipe. OMG. They look real good.I am entering these into A Southern Grace Cinnamon Celebration Contest based on the comments. Thanks for introducing me to this blog!
