  • Ready-made cream puffs
  • Whipped cream
  • Cream for profiteroles


Boil the milk with the single cream. Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar  (picture 1).
Add the two components and cook at 80°. Add the finely chopped dark chocolate (picture 2) and mix until fully emulsified.

Fill the cream puffs with the fresh cream using a sac-à-poche (picture 3) and cool them. Take the profiterole cream and warm it to 25/30°. Dip the cream puffs into it using a fork (picture 4) and place them in a dessert dish or on top of one another to form a pyramid (picture 5).

Decorate with the whipped cream and serve.

  • Cream for profiteroles

    Before dipping the cream puffs into the cream, check it is fluid enough, adding a little water if necessary for a fluid cream that covers well.
