Makes: about 35 chocolate cream puffs
Ingredients for choux pastry:
- 1 cup of water
- 1/3 cup of butter
- a pinch of salt
- 1 tsp of granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
- 4 eggs
For the filling:
- Chocolate cream
For the glaze:
- 2 cups of dark chocolate melted in a bain-marie
We put the water, butter, salt, vanilla extract and sugar in a saucepan.
We bring to a boil, turn off the heat and pour in the flour all at once, put back on the heat and stir vigorously until the mixture comes away from the sides of the saucepan.
At this point we remove from the heat and add the eggs one at a time.
When the mixture is smooth and homogeneous we are going to put it in a sac à poche.
On a baking sheet where we have previously placed baking paper, we are going to form walnut-sized balls for the cream puffs while for the éclairs we form sticks about 4 inches long.
We bake in a preheated, ventilated oven for 20 minutes at 350 F then lower to 330 F for another 10 minutes without ever opening the oven.
Once baked we let cool inside the oven turned off with the door half closed.
Once cool we fill with chocolate cream and dip the surface in chocolate melted in a bain-marie.
