Ingredients

  • CREAM PUFFS:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • FILLING & TOPPING:
  • 1 8oz container of Cool whip
  • 3 tbsp condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp whipped cream cheese
  • 14 oz Hershey's milk chocolate bars melted

Instructions

  • Melt butter and salt in water over medium-high heat. Add the flour and quickly whisk until a batter forms into a ball (1-2 min).
  • Transfer dough into a stand mixer with a paddle attachment and beat 30 seconds. Then add 1 egg at a time. Beat dough for 2 minutes after the last egg is added (dough will be tacky.)
  • Place dough into a piping bag with a round tip.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Holding the piping bag in a downward direction, squeeze batter out holding the bag in place and count to 5 seconds, slowly moving upwards. Use your finger to dis-attach the dough without stretching it out. Dough should look like large hershey kisses at this point (1.25" wide.)Dip your fingers into water and smooth out the pointy tops.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR, this may cause your puffs to deflate.
  • FOR FILLING: Beat cream cheese until smooth then add cool whip and condensed milk.
  • TO ASSEMBLE PUFFS: Stuff each puff with the cool whip frosting, inserting a narrow tip on the side of each puff.
  • Then dip the tops into the melted chocolate and place onto a tray. Keep Refrigerated. Serve cold.

Notes

Tip: dap the four corners of the baking sheet with some of the batter before applying the parchment paper, this helps the paper not slide when piping out.
