Churro balls with dulce de leche dip kick chocolate to the curb

Though we're still pretty jealous of Japan's McChurro, we have to admit that the side of maple syrup is weak sauce. Twigg Studios had the better idea with a dulce de leche dip to complement its churro balls, which look pretty damn tasty themselves. While you make the churro poppers the usual way -- deep-frying dough and then rolling it in cinnamon sugar -- the dulce de leche sauce can be made in either an oven or a crock pot. You just need a can of sweetened condensed milk to get the job done, and we suppose a whole lot of patience if you're actually boiling milk in a crock pot for eight hours.
