- In a saucepan, 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 for 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until mixture is smooth and shiny.

These were amazing! My whole family loved them! To add a little extra flavor and pizazz, I drizzled a chocolate glaze over the top. I also just chopped up regular chocolate chips with a slap-chop instead of buying mini chocolate chips and it worked out just fine.
