Stuffed profiteroles made from choux pastry with vanilla cream and chocolate

This dessert is a French pastry. Choux pastry is typically prepared in a saucepan and contains no sugar. The balls baked from it are then filled with a delicious vanilla pudding cream. Much like cream puffs, this dessert requires some work and effort. But the result can really be seen and tasted. Delicious profiteroles with a delicate and moderately sweet vanilla cream, covered in melted, warm chocolate are sure to draw diners’ admiration.
