Double Chocolate Profiteroles
These chocolate-flavored cream puffs are filled with a creamy white chocolate mousse. Add a fresh berry or sour cherry for a hidden tangy surprise.
- White Chocolate Mousse
- 1 cup (250 mL) heavy whipping cream, divided
- 4 oz/125 g white chocolate, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) plus 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup (175 mL) water
- 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- Fresh blackberries, raspberries or sour cherries in syrup, drained (optional)
- Powdered sugar
For white chocolate mousse, place 1/2 cup of the cream in Small Micro-Cooker®. Microwave on HIGH 45 seconds. Pour hot cream over chocolate in Small Batter Bowl; stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup cream. Cover; refrigerate at least 3 hours or until mixture is well chilled. Whisk chilled mousse with Silicone-Coated Sauce Whisk until soft peaks form.
Meanwhile, for profiteroles, preheat oven to 375°F. Combine flour and cocoa powder in small bowl; set aside. Bring water, butter, granulated sugar and salt to a simmer over medium heat in (2-qt.) Saucepan. Add flour mixture all at once and stir vigorously until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms into a ball. Remove from heat; place dough in Classic Batter Bowl. Add eggs; whisk until smooth and very thick.
Lightly spray Mini Muffin Pan with vegetable oil. Attach open star tip to Easy Accent® Decorator; fill with dough. Pipe equal-sized rosettes of dough into wells of pan. Bake 28-30 minutes or until dough is puffed and tops are slightly cracked. Remove from oven and make a small cut in side of each puff to release steam. Remove from pan to cooling rack; cool completely. Cut off tops of puffs. If desired, place one berry into bottom of each puff. Fill each puff with mousse using Small Scoop; replace tops. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar; serve immediately.

Pipe batter into pan, filling wells about halfway. Use a wet fingertip to smooth top of rosette for a more even shape. Bake until puffs appear dry on surface and in cracks.
Venting the puffs by making a small cut in side will prevent them from deflating or becoming soggy. Use Bread Knife to slice tops off of cooled puffs.
