Cream puffs with a custard filling and chocolate sauce.







  1. Heat water, salt and butter and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and add in the flour. Stir constantly over low heat scraping the bottom and the edges until it becomes smooth and holds together.
  2. Remove from heat and add in the eggs, one at a time. Beat well each time until the dough becomes like a smooth thick cake batter.
  3. Preheat oven to 400F (200C)
  4. Use a piping bag and pipe out small mounds of dough. Bake for about 25 minutes until golden. Let them cool down.
  5. Meanwhile prepare the custard filling. Beat yolks and sugar until white. Gradually pour milk and mix well. Put in flour, cornstarch and vanilla. Mix well.
  6. Cook until it boils and thickens, stirring constantly over medium heat.
  7. Let it reach at room temperature and then chill at least for an hour.
  8. Prepare the chocolate sauce in the meantime. Heat the heavy cream in a small pan and remove from heat right before it boils.
  9. Add in chocolate chips and stir well until they melt and the sauce becomes silky.
  10. Cut each puff halfway, fill with the custard and coat with chocolate sauce. Top with pistachios.
  11. Chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes before serving.
