Chocolate Cream Puffs

These Chocolate Cream Puffs are light, crisp and filled with a rich and creamy chocolate custard.

While this classic French dessert is super impressive, it’s also surprisingly easy to make and absolutely delicious.


– Butter – Sugar – Salt – Cocoa Powder – All-Purpose Flour

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat and set aside.


In a large saucepan over medium high heat, add the butter, water, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and add the flour.


Stir constantly and vigorously using a wooden spoon until the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan. Continue to cook for an additional 1 minute in order to remove a little more moisture and cook the flour.


Immediately transfer the cooked pastry dough to the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on medium speed using the paddle attachment to release some of the steam.


Add the vanilla, then begin adding the eggs one at a time, letting each egg incorporate into the dough before adding the next.
