Ingredients:  
FOR THE CHURROS:
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 quarts vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour

FOR THE CHOCOLATE SAUCE:
3 1/2 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions:
Directions:
Combine 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Set aside. Line a plate with paper towels.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the water, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring the mixture to a boil then remove it from the heat. Stir in the flour, mixing until it forms a ball.

Heat 3 to 4 inches of vegetable oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot set over medium-high heat until it reaches 375F. (There should be a minimum of 3 inches above the oil to prevent it from bubbling over.)

Transfer the dough to a cloth pastry bag or heavy-duty plastic bag fitted with a large star tip.

Pipe the dough over the pot of oil to a length of about 4 inches, then using scissors or a sharp knife, cut it so it releases into the oil. (Stand back to avoid any splatters.) Pipe two to three churros into the oil at a time, frying them until they're golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the churros to the paper towel-lined plate to drain for 2 minutes, then roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat the frying and coating process with the remaining dough.

MAKE THE CHOCOLATE SAUCE:
Place the chopped chocolate in a small bowl.

Warm the heavy cream in small saucepan. (Do not let it boil.) Pour the heavy cream over the chopped chocolate. Let it sit for 1 minute then stir to combine.
