Chocolate Cream Puffs (Profiteroles)

These sweet pastries remind me of my childhood when I absolutely adored all things creamy/custardy–cream puffs, eclairs, custard-filled doughnuts, you name it! For some reason I’ve always been intimidated by cream puffs; they just seemed so complex, so perfect and so French! But recently, I stumbled upon this surprisingly easy recipe and decided it was time to put my fear to rest; so here it is: homemade Chocolate Covered Cream Puffs!

Recipe: Simple and Easy Cream Puffs

**NOTE: Feel free to serve the cream puffs either chilled or frozen. I prefer frozen; they taste like sweet bundles of ice cream heaven! ALSO: For a low cal version, try using cool whip to fill the cream puffs instead of the creamy vanilla custard.

Boston Cream Pie

 

 

When my family and I visited the east coast, we just had to try an original Boston Cream Pie (make that 3 Boston Cream Pies), but the all of the cakes were disappointing! So of course, the second we arrived home, I was dying to make a Boston Cream Pie of my own.

Thankfully, the cake turned out great! The vanilla cake was spongy, not dry, and the ganache was so perfect that I use it for all of my desserts!! Enjoy!
