A profiterole is a dessert made from a small, round baked choux pastry, then filled with a sweet filling. This recipe uses an ice cream and chocolate topping, but other filling options are whipped cream or pastry cream, and they can be served topped with a caramel glaze or fruit.


1 cup milk
1/4 lb. unsalted butter
Pinch of kosher salt
1 cup all purpose flour
4 extra-large eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. prepared coffee
Vanilla ice cream


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Scald milk, butter, and salt over med. heat. When butter is melted, add flour; beat with wooden spoon until dough forms. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat for 2 min. (Flour will begin to coat bottom of pan.) Dump hot mixture into bowl of food processor. Add eggs; pulse until incorporated.
  2. Spoon mixture into pastry bag fitted with a large, round tip. Pipe 1 1⁄2 in.-high mounds onto baking sheet lined with parchment. With wet finger, lightly press down swirl at top of each puff.
