Method Prep:30min › Cook:25min › Ready in:55min
Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
In a large saucepan, bring water and butter to the boil. Stir in flour and salt until the mixture forms a ball. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon or stand mixer, beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking tray.
Bake profiteroles for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. The centres should be dry. Pierce the side of each one to let out the steam. Leave them to cool and dry out on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the whipping
cream until thick.
When the profiteroles are cool, and you are ready to serve, gently split each one; fill with whipped cream. Drizzle with the melted chocolate.
