{Guest Post} Sarah From A Girl in Transit

4/05/2012

Hello lovelies! Today we have a special treat for you (a sugary sweet treat to be exact). Sarah from A Girl in Transit is sharing her Chocolate Heart Churros recipe. Mouths...get ready to water.


 So who doesn't like churros? like, hardly anyone! I saw a few churro recipes pinned on pinterest, mainly being dipped in chocolate. That's when I thought "Hmmm CHOCOLATE CHURROS!" I searched for a recipe and I ended up using a combination of 2 different recipes.  Then, because my life doesn't have enough going on as it is... I thought "why not make them HEART shaped!" Making churros is actually really simple. The heart shape is a tad tricky, but not too bad. Let's just say I definitely put my feet up and almost ate ALL of them when I was done. The baby bump was happy =)







Ingredients Needed:

1 Cup Water
3 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Cup Flour
2 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 Large Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 Cup Sugar
Canola Oil for Frying

Directions:
Start out by adding your water, butter, brown sugar, and salt to a pot and let it come to a rolling boil.While your water is heating up, grab the flour, 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon, and the cocoa.  Mix it all together. Once your water is boiling, remove it from the heat and add in the chocolaty flour mixture. Stir it in until a dough ball forms. Transfer the dough to a stand mixer bowl; mix on low speed until there is no longer steam escaping from the dough. With the mixer running on medium, add the eggs, 1 at a time, then add your vanilla. Scrape down the mixer bowl with a rubber spatula between each addition. Transfer the dough to the piping bag.

For the tip I used a Ateco Pastry Tube - Star - Size 8.  You can also  pipe them out by  cutting a corner from your bag.  I used a dutch oven filled 4 inches with canola oil heated to 375 degrees F. Once your oil is hot, you can start piping out your churros.  You can either squeeze the piping bag and cut the churros right off with scissors into the oil for regular shaped churros, or on floured wax paper pipe out heart shapes. Then with floured fingers lift the heart into your oil skimmer and lower it carefully into the oil. Don't add more than 3 or 4 at a time or your oil temperature will lower. Cook the churros for about a minute on each side and then pull them out and allow them to drain.

Mix together the white sugar and remaining teaspoon of cinnamon.  Grab up your warm churros and spin them around the mixture in order to get them good and coated. You can eat them as is, with chocolate dipping sauce, or what I did was make a strawberry puree sauce. Then enjoy!!!

And now I want a churro. Dipped in hot chocolate. Thanks so much for stopping by sweet Sarah and readers, go check out her adorable blog, she has the best craft projects and recipes (obviously).
