Recipe for Churros with Chocolate Sauce in an Air Fryer Method

  1. In a small saucepan bring water, salt and ¼ cup of butter to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the flour and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon for 30 seconds or until the dough is smoothly formed. Continue cooking on the low-medium heat, stirring constantly, until dough begins to pull away from the sides of the pan, usually 2-3 minutes. 
  2. Transfer the dough to a medium bowl. Stir constantly for 1 minute until slightly cooled. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring through until completely smooth. Transfer mixture to a piping bag fitted with a medium star tip and place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes
  3. Pipe 6 (5cm long) pieces in a single layer in an air fryer basket. Cook at 190 degrees celsius for about 10 minutes or until golden. Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. In a medium bowl stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Brush the cooked churros with the remaining melted butter and then roll in the sugar mixture to coat.
  5. Place chocolate and cream in a small microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 15 seconds. Take out and stir. Microwave on high for another 15 seconds or until smoothly melted. Serve churros with chocolate sauce.
