Profiteroles

For the chou pastry

  • 3 Tbsp (5cl) milk
  • 4 Tbsp (7cl) water
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp sugar (5 g)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 C (75g) flour
  • ¼ C (45g) butter

Filling: Vanilla Ice cream (store bought)

Hot chocolate sauce

  • 1 C (150g) dark chocolate
  • ¾ C (150g) heavy whipping cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Warm up the milk, water, salt, sugar and butter in a saucepan.
  3. When the mixture begins to boil, turn off heat and add flour. Mix well to obtain a homogeneous paste. Return to low heat for 1-2 minutes slowly to allow the dough to dry off the heat.
  4. Add the eggs one by one while mixing well: you will obtain a smooth dough. Fill a pastry bag with this dough.
  5. On a pan covered with parchment paper, form small petits choux, 2 or 3 cm in diameter
  6. Bake for 30 minutes without opening the oven door while baking. Let cool.
  7. Make the chocolate sauce: Heat the cream in a saucepan. Pour over the chocolate and let it melt slowly.
  8. Open your petits choux with a knife and scoop vanilla ice cream inside. Pour the chocolate sauce over the profiteroles.

Bon appétit!
