  • 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.
