Drain on paper towels. Mix sugar and the optional cinnamon. Roll churros in sugar or dump the sugar on the pile of churros. CHOCOLATE Place the chocolate and half the milk in a pan and heat, stirring, until the chocolate has melted. Dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining milk andwhisk into the chocolate with the sugar. Cook on low heat, whisking constantly until the chocolate is thickened...about five mintues. Add extra cornstarch if it doesn't start to thicken after five minutes. Remove and whisk smooth. Pour and serve in cups or bowls for dunking the churros.
