  1. 1

    In a large, deep pan, heat the oil for deep frying the churros to 190°C or until a piece of bread takes 30 seconds to colour. Preheat the oven to 150°C (fan 130°C, gas mark 2).

  2. 2

    Bring the milk and 150ml water to the boil in a pan, shoot in the flour and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon until smooth. Cool slightly, then gradually beat in enough egg to make a smooth but stiff, glossy mixture that drops, reluctantly, off the spoon. Spoon into a piping bag with a large star nozzle.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 150ml Milk (whole)
    • 100g Plain white flour
    • 2 Egg(s) (free range) medium, beaten
  3. 3

    Holding the nozzle over the hot oil, gently squeeze the piping bag and snip off 6-8 x 10cm lengths of the mixture with kitchen scissors. Fry for 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally, until crisp and a golden brown. Lift out with a slotted spoon onto a baking tray lined with kitchen paper.

  4. 4

    Mix the golden caster sugar and the cinnamon together on a large plate. Roll the fried churros in the sugar mixture, then pop in the oven to keep warm while you make the hot chocolate.

  5. 5

    For the hot chocolate, put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and rest over a pan of just simmering water until completely melted. Meanwhile, bring the milk to the boil in a small pan. Remove the chocolate from the heat and whisk in a little of the hot milk. Add the rest and whisk until frothy. Pour into hot mugs.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 225g Dark chocolate
    • 800ml Milk (whole)
