  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Bring water, milk and butter to boil in saucepan on high heat. Cook 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add flour; stir vigorously 1 min. until smooth and well blended.
  • Cook and stir on low heat 1 min. to dry out mixture slightly. Place in medium bowl. Add 2 of the eggs, using spatula to incorporate well. Add remaining eggs, 1 at a time. Stir 2 min. until smooth and glossy.
  • Spoon mixture in 2 tsp. portions, 2 inches apart, on parchment-covered baking sheet. Bake 5 min. Open oven door slightly (1 cm) to allow crisping. Bake an additional 10 min. until golden brown. Transfer buns to wire rack. Cool completely, about 10 min.
  • Slice part way on side of each bun; pipe in 2 tsp. whipped topping. Meanwhile, melt chocolate on low heat in saucepan. Dip bun tops into melted chocolate. Dust with icing sugar, if desired.

Cooking Know-How

Once mixture is ready and you don't want to use it immediately, brush the surface with a little beaten egg to prevent skin or crust from forming.

Make Ahead

Freeze prepared profiteroles for up to a month, covered, in tightly sealed container. Thaw in refrigerator 1 hour before serving.

Make it Easy

Place mixture in resealable plastic bag with tip cut off to pipe onto baking sheet instead of spooning.

    My daughters, age 12 and 13 made these by themselves...The turned out great. Everyone loved them so much we made them again the next day...

    Made this for a family get together. Turned out to be a hit, the only thing is that when i took them outta the oven they deflated. But it worked out ok when I filled them they puffed back up. Would for sure make this again!

    I have followed the instructions for this recipe to the letter; yet, I had to bake the dough much longer at the same temperature than it is mentioned in the recipe. However, the end result was absolutely delicious. A wonderful idea for parties and as an easy to serve weeknight desert idea!
