OMG!!!!!!!!!! Help me! I don’t think I have ever told you this but I have a LOVE for cream puffs. I love cream puffs!OMG,OMG I feel the tears!I want to try because I love them so much. A lot of people, when they bake they make brownies,cake,cupcake,cookies. A lot of people never do pastries like cream puffs,eclairs, dough cups and filling. I will be honest, Same with me. When I have sweet Saturdays I usually make cake and cookies and brownies, stuff like that. What is so special if I make it like every Saturday anyway? Nothing right’. So these are extra special!! I’m loving it. If you watch food network and cooking channel and all the baking shows, they make these things look extremely hard. To make a cream puff is simple. Like a cake, they make it and they pipe it and use fondant and me, well, I just spread it and put sprinkles on. Well, sometimes a pipe because I love decorating cake.Anyway,the presentation just looks so unique and difficult when it is really not. Like for the chocolate sauce, I just drizzled it on. A lot of people here the word pastry and get all freaked out. Well don’t be for this. A 5 year old could make this.So a lot of you might ask, “what kind of filling”. I know pretty much all cream puffs have the same filling but people do ask this. It is a whipped cream filling. Which goes amazing with the chocolate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’m loving it!

The dough sandwich outside part taste amazing. It isn’t sweet but more
floury. But it is NOT dry. The filling gives it that dessert sweet
flavor.Then the chocolate gives it a chocolate rich dessert flavor. As a
garnish I finished it off with powdered sugar!These words are like on
the type of my tongue.You can’t describe these, you have to make them to
believe how good they are!!

I Love to eat pastries. I love canollis, cream puffs, eclairs, lobster tails, all that stuff. I love to make desserts but when it comes to pastries, not my hot shot. I can make them but only by recipes. So I am sighting my sources and saying this is not my recipe. But it is delicious!!
