Chocolate Cream Puffs


I absolutely LOVE cream puffs. So when I saw this recipe I knew it was a must have. I've made these for Sunday treats almost every week this month. They are SO good. Hubby and I fight over who gets to eat the last one-- I promise these won't stick around your house for long.

Chocolate Cream Puffs

Cream Puff
1/2 cup water
4 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. Sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
2 large eggs

Filling
2 ounces low fat cream cheese
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
8 ounces strawberries- diced
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 375. In a medium saucepan heath the water and butter on medium heat until the butter melts. Seperately stir together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt. When butter is boiling add the flour mixture to the saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon until a ball forms. Let cook for a minute or two while you stir- breaking up the ball a bit. Take off the heat and let cook for a minute or two. Mix in eggs one at a time. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool. Makes 12 cream puffs.

While cream puffs are cooking beat together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and heavy whipping cream. Beat until stiff peaks form. Stir in strawberries. When puffs are cooled fill evenly with cream and serve.

1 cream puff w/filling = 3 points (points plus)
