Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add water, salt and ¼ cup of butter and bring to the boil.
Reduce heat to low. Add the sifted flour and stir continuously for until a smooth dough is formed. Continue cooking on the low heat, stirring constantly, until dough begins to pull away from the sides of the saucepan, this should take 2-3 minutes.
Once the dough is ready pour into a large bowl. Allow to cool for 1 minute.
Stir the dough mixture again to let out any excess heat.
Add the eggs one at a time, ensuring each egg is completely mixed through.
Add 2 tsp of cinnamon to the dough and stir thoroughly.
Spoon the dough into to a piping bag and place in the fridge to chill for 20 minutes
Using the piping bag pipe 8 (5cm long) pieces of dough into your air fryer basket, ensuring no dough is touching.
Cook the cinnamon sticks for around 10 minutes or until golden. Repeat this process with the remaining dough.
Once all the cinnamon sticks are cooked combine the sugar and remaining cinnamon in a small bowl and melt the remaining 2 tbsp of butter in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Brush the cooked cinnamon sticks with the melted butter and then roll in the sugar mixture to coat.
Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave 15 seconds at a time until completely melted, chocolate can burn easily so it is important to take your time.
