Churros with hot chilli chocolate

  • 0:20 Prep
  • 0:15 Cook
  • 8 Servings


  • 190g (1 1/4 cups) plain flour, sifted
  • Pinch of salt
  • 310ml (1 1/4 cups) water
  • 160g butter
  • 4 eggs
  • Vegetable oil, to deep-fry
  • 100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Hot chilli chocolate

  • 2L (8 cups) milk
  • 3 x 100g pkts Lindt Excellence Chilli dark chocolate, coarsely chopped


  • 1
    Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Place the water and butter in a medium saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring, until the butter melts. Bring to the boil. Add the flour mixture and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the mixture forms a ball and comes away from the side of the pan. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  • 2
    Use an electric beater to beat the eggs into the flour mixture, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition until well combined and the mixture is thick and glossy. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a 1cm-diameter fluted nozzle.
  • 3
    Add enough oil to a large heavy-based saucepan to reach a depth of 7cm. Heat to 190°C over medium-high heat (when the oil is ready, a cube of bread will turn golden brown in 10 seconds).
  • 4
    Using a knife to cut the dough, pipe six 10cm lengths into the oil. Cook, turning with tongs halfway through cooking, for 2 minutes or until golden. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat, in 3 more batches, with the remaining dough to make 24 churros.
  • 5
    Combine the sugar and cinnamon on a large plate. Roll the warm churros in the cinnamon sugar to coat.
  • 6
    To make the hot chilli chocolate, heat the milk in a large saucepan over medium heat until just boiling. Remove from heat and add the chocolate. Use a metal spoon to stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Divide the hot chilli chocolate among serving glasses and serve with the churros.
