Ingredients

Serves 8

  • 4-5 churros
  • 8 short wooden skewers
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tbs. corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. fine salt
  • 2 tbs. water
  • 2 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped or chips
  • 1 tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

Cut the churros into 1” pieces with a serrated knife. Add three bite-sized pieces to each of the 8 skewers. Set aside.

Heat the cream, milk, corn syrup and salt in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Stir the cocoa powder and water together in a small bowl to make a paste. When the liquid is hot, but not boiling, add the cocoa paste, semi-sweet chocolate and butter. Allow the chocolate to melt, untouched, for 5 minutes. Add the vanilla and whisk until smooth.

Pour the sipping chocolate into the bottom of each of the shot glasses, filling only halfway. Add a skewer with churros to each glass and serve
