Cook Time:


  • 1 cup(s) water
  • 1/2 cup(s) unsalted butter diced
  • 1 teaspoon(s) sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 cup(s) flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 egg for coating lightly beaten
  • vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup(s) heavy cream
  • 4 ounce(s) bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) unsalted butter


  1. 1. Move the oven rack to a position slightly below the center and heat the oven to 375*F. Lightly coat two baking sheets with butter.

  2. 2. In a medium saucepan, bring the water, butter, sugar, and salt to a boil. Remove the pan from the stove top and stir in the flour until well blended. Return the pan to the stove top and cook on medium, stirring constantly, until the mixture pulls away from the sides, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. 3. Remove the pan from the stove top once more and transfer the mixture to a medium bowl. Stir in the 4 eggs, one at a time, until each is fully incorporated.

  4. 4. While the dough is still warm, use a tablespoon-size cookie scoop to place 1 1/2 inch wide mounds on the baking sheets. Stagger the rows to give the puffs room to expand as they bake. Gently brush the tops of each with the beaten egg.

  5. 5. Bake the puffs until golden brown, 25 to 28 minutes. (Don't remove them from the oven until they are fully baked or they will collapse) Transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  6. 6. While the puffs are baking, line a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper. Place 1 1/2 inch wide ice cream scoops on the sheet, one for each puff. Cover the ice cream with plastic wrap and freeze until ready to use.

  7. 7. For the chocolate sauce, bring the heavy cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Place the chocolate in a heat-safe bowl and pour the cream on top. Let the mixture sit for 3 minutes, then whisk it until it's smooth. Add the butter, then whisk again.

  8. 8. To assemble the dessert, cut each puff in half, place a scoop of ice cream on the bottom, replace the top, and drizzle with the warm chocolate sauce. Serve immediately.

  9. Instead of ice cream use whipped cream and top with fruit.
