This chocolate frosted creamy eclairs recipe is a delicious combination of light, puffy dough, creamy vanilla custard and a chocolate glaze. These fun desserts are compact and contain an abundance of flavor. These tiny pastries are perfect for parties where people are less likely to be sitting. Of course, the dark chocolate frosting and vanilla bean laced cream will make you want to keep the whole batch for yourself.

The elegance of eclairs recipes may seem out of reach to many home cooks, but are surprisingly easy, even though they do take some time. The pastry cream recipe itself takes moments to thicken on the stove but requires all night to chill so that it is thick enough to fill the eggy pastry. The choux pastry is much simpler. You will be shocked by how the dough puffs in the oven with the minimal effort. This pastry dough can be adopted for other dessert recipes as well, like cream puffs, crullers or churros.
