Chocolate Cream Puffs are really easy to make. You make it just filling puffs up with cream or custard, and then covering them with chocolate icing. You asked me for the recipe, and here it is: the classic cream puffs, filled in with whipped cream and covered in chocolate icing. Of course, you can indulge your whims and fill/cover them according to your taste 😀
Ingredients for the chocolate icing:
200 g of dark chocolate al 70%
200 ml of milk
100 g of sugar
2 tbsp of butter
300 ml of whipping cream
Preparation Time: 40 min.
Cooking Time: 20 min.
Total Time: 1 hour
In a heavy-based saucepan, bring the water to a point of boil, together with butter and salt.
Take away from the heat and add sugar and flour.
Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon till you get a smooth dough. Put again on the heat, and stir till it breaks away from the sides.
Take away from the heat, let cool till tepid, and add the eggs, one at a time: incorporate evenly each egg befor adding the next one.
Keep stirring till the choux pastry gets quite consistent.
Cover a baking tray with baking paper. Put the choux pastry in a pastry bag with a round nozzle, and make small ball of dough, quite far among each other.
Bake the puffs in pre-heated oven at 200°C for about 20 minutes.
Let them cool down, then make a little hole on the surface with the tip of a knife.
Whip the cream and put it in the pastry bag.
Stuff the puffs by putting the nozzle of the pastry bag in the hole you’ve just made.
Make now the chocolate icing.
Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan, then add milk and sugar and cook on a low heat for about 5 minutes.
Let the icing cool till tepid, then dunk the puffs, one at a time, in the icing.
Put your puffs on a platter.
Garnish the Chocolate Cream Puffs with the remaining whipped cream.
Refrigerate them until the eleventh hour.
