Daring Bakers – 10th Challenge: Chocolate Eclairs! Hum…chocolate… 

This month’s challenge, hosted by Tony Tahhan and MeetaK, was scrumptious chocolate eclairs, taken from Pierre Herme’s Chocolate Dessert. This recipe yielded one of the best recipe recipe for choux paste I have ever made. I couldn’t believe how light the eclairs turned out. 

Though we had the choice to use any type of cream for the inside, I chose to follow the recipe fully and did the bittersweet chocolate pastry cream and the bittersweet chocolate sauce. The result was a trip to chocolate heaven! I’ll definitely do this one again.

I completed the challenge the weekend after it was posted.  It’s been a long month waiting for the next challenge. Bring it on!
