Easy Churros with Chocolate Sauce
Lighter and quicker to make than conventional churros, these tasty treats are made from store-bought dough that gets scored on both sides to create those Churro-like nooks and crannies for maximum cinnamon sugar adhesion. Enjoy with a traditional rich chocolate sauce or a light drizzle of honey.

  • ¼c whole milk,for brushing
  • ¼c granulated sugar

  • 3.5oz chopped semisweet chocolate

Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Roll out refrigerated crescent dough on your work surface and separate into four rectangles, pinching the perforated seams of each rectangle together.
  3. Working on one rectangle at a time and chilling the rest, cut each rectangle into five 1-inch strips.
  4. Lightly score the middle of each strip twice lengthwise to create churro-like ridges, being careful not to cut all the way through. Repeat this step for front and back of each strip.
  5. Transfer strips to a plate, twist each strip three times and lightly brush with milk.
  6. Sprinkle on cinnamon sugar.
  7. Lay churros flat in air fryer, allowing room for them to grow.
  8. Air Fry at 350°F/180°C for 4-5 Minutes. Note: as the air fryer heats up, batches will cook in 3-4 Minutes.
  9. Repeat with other three rectangles of dough, working in batches.
  10. As each batch finishes, top with a little bit more cinnamon sugar.
  11. While churros are air frying, microwave cream in a glass measuring jug for 1 Minute.
  12. Pour cream into a bowl with chopped chocolate and let sit 2-3 Minutes before stirring well to combine. Serve alongside churros.
