Chocolate Sauce

  • 50 g Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
  • 100 ml Heavy Cream


  1. In a saucepan combine water, butter, cooking oil, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil. Then turn off the heat.

  2. Add flour and whisk quickly until well combined. Then add beaten egg and stir vigorously with wooden spoon until uniform and shiny.

Recipe Notes

  • In this recipe I use 4:6 ratio for dark chocolate and milk chocolate. You can change the ratio to your taste.
  • You can substitute butter with cooking oil.
  • Fry churro bites every 4-6 pieces at a time. The churros tend to stick with each other.
