200g flour (strong white flour)
1 tsp of sugar
1tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
300ml of boiling water
Icing sugar to dust over the churros
200 grams dark chocolate (roughly chopped)
50 grams milk chocolate (roughly chopped)
2 tablespoons golden syrup
300 ml of boiling water
Put all the chocolate in a heavy bottomed saucepan with the golden syrup and cream.
Heat over a low heat, stirring continuously, to melt the chocolate, being careful not to let it burn.
Mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder into a bowl and make a well in the middle.
Pour the boiling water carefully into the well, beating it well with a fork to get rid of any lumps.
The dough should be slightly soft and sticky to touch. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
Fill a large, heavy bottomed saucepan with the sun-flower oil - it should be about one-third full. Heat the oil to 170C.
Add the dough to the churro maker and using the star-shaped nozzle, turn the handle to squeeze the mixture directly onto a tray lined with baking paper.
Use a knife or pair of scissors to cut your churros to the desired length.
Then place carefully into the hot oil. Be careful not to add more than eight at any one time, or they will all stick together.
Fry for about 3 to 4 minutes until crispy and golden.
Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
Sprinkle with the icing sugar.
Reheat the chocolate sauce and pour into little cups for dipping with the churros.
