“A Halloween twist on classic cream puffs.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup water
  • 12 cup butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 9 12 ounces somebody's mother's chocolate syrup or 9 12 ounces caramel sauce or 9 12 ounces white chocolate sauce


  1. Boil the water and butter in a pot. As it begins to really boil, stir in the flour and salt. As you stir, the mixture will form into a ball. Move that to a mixing bowl and fold in a beaten egg one at a time - mixing between each one.
  2. Drop by the tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet (non-stick is great too). Be sure to space them apart and place in a preheated, 425 degree oven. Bake until golden brown (about 20 minutes -- maybe longer). Let shells cool.
  3. When the shells are cool, using a pastry bag, fill the shells with Somebody's Mother's chocolate, caramel, or white chocolate sauces. To vary the recipe, you can fill the shells with ice cream and drizzle one or more of the sauces over the tops of the shells.
