This easy homemade profiteroles recipe is a combination of choux pastry dough, whipped cream, and chocolate glaze. Choux pastry is an egg leavened dough that is very light and fluffy. It gets used for doughnut recipes like crullers and churros, as well as decadent French pastries like eclairs and cream puffs. The cream filling is real whipped cream lightly sweetened with powdered sugar and flavored with vanilla extract. The velvety cream is what makes this dessert exceptional, and this homemade whip cream is as easy to prepare as it is delicious. The chocolate glaze is another important component involving cocoa powder, milk and powder. If you want to transform this profiteroles recipe to eclairs, you could, because all the components are in this dish. All you would have to do is pipe long pieces of the choux pastry rather than piping balls. Whatever you do, this comfort dessert will be a welcome inclusion at any event from workplace potlucks to family get-togethers.
