Ingredients
Filling:
  • 1 package vanilla pudding mix (instant)
  • 1 1/2 Cups milk
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Cream Puffs:
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Cup butter
  • 1/2 Cup flour
  • 2 eggs
Topping:
  • 1/2 Cup chocolate chips
  • 1 Tablespoon shortening
  • 1 Tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons milk
Instructions
For filling:
  1. Mix dry pudding and milk and chill for one hour. Beat whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla 'til stiff. Fold into pudding mix. Refrigerate several hours.
For Cream puffs:
  1. Bring water, salt and butter to boil over medium heat. Remove and add flour. Mix well. Return to low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture pulls away from side of pan and forms a ball. Beat in eggs one at a time 'til well mixed. Drop dough from teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Puffs will look "dry" when done.
For Topping:
  1. Mix all ingredients in a double boiler until chocolate melts. Keep warm.
  2. Slice through puffs horizontally and add about a tablespoon of filling. Take remaining cap and drag through topping. Place on filled puff.
  3. Must be refrigerated before serving. Best if made same day as needed - otherwise they get soggy.
