  5. Move the dough to a medium bowl set aside to cool for approximately five minutes..
  6. Time to add the eggs, make sure the dough is not too hot, a little above room temperature is best; you don’t want the eggs cooking.
  7. Beat in the eggs one at a time, until each egg is completely combined, and the dough becomes sticky.
  8. Simply mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and done, when finished move to a shallow serving dish.
  9. Heat the cream to a simmer using a medium heat, remove from the heat and stir in the chopped chocolate keep stirring until it is all completely dissolved transfer to a serving dish for dipping the churro balls.
