Chocolate-Filled Cream Puffs Recipe

"This is a heavenly dessert for chocolate lovers," relates Kathy Kittell of Lenexa, Kansas. "Each puff is stuffed with chocolate cream and drizzled with chocolate glaze."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + chilling Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 cup water
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • 1. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring water and butter to a boil. Add flour and salt all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat until smooth.
  • 2. Cover a baking sheet with foil; grease foil. Drop batter into six mounds onto foil. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 30 minutes longer. Remove puffs to a wire rack. Immediately cut a slit in each for steam to escape.
  • 3. In a bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and cocoa, beating until almost stiff. Split puffs and remove soft dough. Add filling; replace tops. Melt chocolate and butter; stir in sugar and water. Drizzle over puffs. Chill. Yield: 6 servings.
