Profiteroles au Chocolat

I finally get to spend a little more time at home now that the season is slowing down, and I love it! My mother is visiting from France, as are my friend Isabelle's parents...and that is all we need for an excuse to organize dinner parties!
Sunday night was at the DeDeckos and Monday night at our house. Grilled leg of lamb with spice rub and a mint yogurt sauce, Bob's marinated chicken, couscous and roasted red peppers. All very delicious! And for dessert...Profiteroles au chocolat!!!

Profiteroles au Chocolat

Serves 8

24 puffs (see Pate a choux recipe)
Vanilla ice cream, preferably home made
2 cups chocolate sauce

Cut the top off the puffs and reserve.

Place one scoop of vanilla ice cream in the bottom part of the puff and place cover on top.

Transfer 3 filled puffs per plate and pour the hot chocolate sauce on top.


For faster last minute assembly, prepare the ice cream ahead: line a sheet pan with parchment paper and place the ice cream scoops on it. Keep in the freezer until ready to assemble the dessert.
