{ movie night treat }

Here's a yummy treat I made today. Don't they look so tempting and delicious?! Here's the recipe:

Cream Puffs
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
4 eggs

Heat oven to 400. Heat water and butter to rolling boil. Stir in flour, reduce heat. Stir vigorously over low heat about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Beat in eggs, all at once, continue beating until smooth. Drop dough by scant 1/4 cupfuls about 3" apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Cool. Cut off top 1/3 of each puff and pull out any filaments of soft dough. Fill puffs with whipped cream. Replace tops.

Sweetened Whipped Cream
2 cups whipping cream
6 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Beat until thick.

Chocolate Ganache Glaze
3 oz semi-sweet chocolate
3/4 cup whipping cream
1 tbsp butter

Chop chocolate and place in metal bowl. Heat cream and butter until it comes to a boil. Pour over chocolate. Let stand 5 minutes, then beat until melted, smooth and thick. Refrigerate for awhile if it's too runny (and don't dump it all over the counter and floor like I did). Pour into icing bag with a small tip and drizzle over cream puffs.

Serve with fresh strawberries and dust with powdered sugar.
