Recipe :: Churros + Chocolate Dipping Sauce

I promised a recipe later today for the three chocolate dipping sauces and I’m here to deliver! Churros alone are delicious, but these chocolate sauces put them over the top! My favorite was the Chocolate Chili because I’m a huge fan of dark chocolate and spice, but they were all amazing! Even the white chocolate (which I’m not usually a fan of) was fantastic – the addition of orange is perfection…

Place chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips) in bowl along with other accompanying ingredients, except for the heavy cream. Heat heavy cream on medium-high heat until just coming to a boil. Remove from heat and immediately pour over chocolate. Let sit for 1 minute then stir gently until all the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Sauces will thicken as they cool. Depending upon the type of chocolate used (and the stabilizers contained in the chocolate) you may need to add a little more cream to maintain a sauce-like consistency if served cool. You can also place sauces in a small fondue pot to keep them warm if you plan on letting them sit out!
