Chocolate-Éclairs

One of the easiest and most scrumptious of all deserts, today I bring you my favorite recipe of cream stuffed chocolate éclairs. It barely takes any time and can be a great replacement for mithai at various occasions since it’s a one bite treat and is not very messy. So without further ado, let’s begin.

Ingredients:

Pastry

  1. Water- 1 cup
  2. Butter-1 stick
  3. Flour- 1 cup
  4. Eggs- 4

Filling

  1. Whipped cream
  2. Vanilla essence- 3 to 4 drops

Topping

  1. Chocolate chips
  2. Warm milk- 1 cup

Procedure:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Heat water and butter in a pan. Add flour and stir constantly till thick, smooth dough is formed.
  • Beat 4 eggs, one at time, into the dough and mix well till it smoothens.
  • Use a tablespoon to form small balls and put them over a greased baking tray.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until light brown. Keep aside.
  • Add the vanilla essence into the whipped cream. And mix well.
  • Make small incisions on the side of the dough balls. Use an icing nozzle to squirt the whipped cream inside the ball. Smoothen it out from the top.
  • Place a bowl full of the chocolate chips over a pan of hot water and add some milk a little at a time. Mix well until the chips are melted.
  • You can either drizzle the hot chocolate sauce over the balls or submerge the dough balls in the sauce, and freeze.
