Easy Chocolate Eclairs

So my mom’s favorite dessert of all time is chocolate eclairs.  I came across a recipe on Marth Stewart’s website that said it would be easy to make.  I can do easy… right???  They ended up being AMAZING buuuuut my mom who promised to show up for a nice stash of them forgot.  Mom…  How dare you!  I should punish her by eating them all up but I wrapped them instead and can only hope they taste just as good tomorrow when she picks them up.

Below is the recipe.  It isn’t as much work as it looks so I say just go for it and you can be creative and pipe it into hearts, circles, etc…  Let me know how it turns out!

Filling:

As far as the filling, I took 1/2 a large carton of fresh whipping cream and whipped it in my stand mixer and add 2 to 4 tbsp of sugar to your liking.  I’m not a huge fan of custard so fresh whipping cream was a clear winner.

Chocolate topping:

For the topping  I used 1/3 cup of fresh whipping cream and 4 Dairy Milk chocolate bars.  I boiled the whipping cream stirring constantly and then broke the chocolate and stirred it until melted.  I let it cool a little and spooned it on top of each eclair. Then place in fridge for at least 30 minutes then serve cold. 

Hope you love and hope you all have a great week!
