heat oven to 400 degrees.
Bring your 1 cup water,
1 stick butter, salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Coat in your cinnamon sugar mixture, thoroughly coat, don't be afraid, really gently roll it around in the stuff, nice thick coating is your goal. Lay it on thick.
Now poke an X in the puff bottoms with a knife, and place back on your cookie sheet.
Set in your 200 degree oven for, get this, 45 minutes to 3 hours, until they crisp. It took my guys about 2 1/2 hours.. Don't worry, It will be worth it. In the meantime, don't have a cow, I have other things for you to do.
Make your warm chocolate dipping sauce.
Heat your bittersweet chocolate, 2 cups whole milk ( I used 1 %) wow, aren't I the health conscious one?
...your sugar, and instant espresso......in a medium sized saucepan until chocolate melts. Now mix the cornstarch...with the water and whisk into the chocolate until it thickens.. it thickens quickly. Done!
Take your gorgeous churro puffs right out of the oven...
Drizzle your churro puffs with that silky smooth, warm chocolate dipping sauce you made.. .
