Hazelnut Mocha Eclairs Recipe

Once you try these, especially the filling, you'll be in heaven. They make a special ending to a meal or treat to afternoon coffee clutch.—Carol Witczak, Tinley Park, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:14 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • FILLING:
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 tablespoon boiling water
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts, divided
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, melted

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, bring the water, milk, butter, sugar and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.
  • 2. Transfer to a heavy duty resealable plastic bag; cut a 1-in. hole in one corner of bag. Pipe 3-in. strips about 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 15-20 minutes longer or until golden brown.
  • 3. Pierce side of each eclair with tip of knife. Cool on wire racks. Split eclairs open. Pull out and discard soft dough from inside tops and bottoms.
  • 4. For filling, dissolve coffee granules in boiling water; cool. In a small bowl, beat cream and confectioners' sugar until stiff peaks form. Fold in coffee mixture and 1/4 cup hazelnuts. Refrigerate.
  • 5. Fill the eclairs just before serving; replace tops. Spread with melted chocolate. Sprinkle with remaining hazelnuts. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 14 servings.

" I made these eclairs this morning, and they are delicious! (I used walnuts instead of hazelnuts, as that is what I had. Still good...) Definitely a 5-star recipe. Thanks Carol for submitting such a great recipe."
