Chocolate Éclairs Recipe

Chocolate Éclairs Recipes

Ingredients :

Choux Pastry

1 cup milk

8 tbsp (1 stick) butter

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups all purpose flour

pinch of salt

5 eggs

Whipped Cream Filling

2 cups heavy cream

3 tsp vanilla extract

6-8 ounces semisweet chocolate

Method :

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large saucepan, cook the milk, butter, sugar and vanilla until the butter melts. Add flour and salt, and stir over low heat; the mixture will pull away from the sides of the pan and form a ball. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until there is a film on the bottom of the pan. Place the mixture in the bowl of an electric mixer and allow to cool slightly. When cool, add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Place in a pastry bag and pipe 3-4 inch long éclair shapes onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and, when cold, split open horizontally with a sharp knife. Whip the heavy cream with vanilla. Melt the chocolate in top of a double boiler. Fill the éclairs with piped whipped cream and coat with melted chocolate.
