  1. In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 sugar and 1/2 tbsp cinnamon then set to the side. In a medium sauce pan, combine water, oil, vanilla, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Immediately stir in flour mixture until the dough forms a ball. Let dough cool until it can be handled, about 15 minutes. 
  2. Load dough into a piping bag (with a corner snipped off, fitted with a large star tip.) If you don’t have a churros press!
  3. Heat oil in a large pot, until it reaches 375F... (if you don’t have a oil thermometer, keep on medium/low heat... and always test one first to see if you need it higher or lower in heat. Fry churros until golden, about 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Use tongs to remove them to the paper towel-lined plate then directly put them into the cinnamon sugar, making sure they get nice and coated. Repeat with any remaining dough. 
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature, with Chocolate sauce! .* Churros are best the day they are made*
  6. For the chocolate dip just chop chocolate into chunks, place in bowl then microwave for 15 second intervals stirring in between until melted and smooth.
