FFWD Week #29: Chocolate & Vanilla Eclairs
Mmmmmmm! I was so excited for this recipe, and it did not disappoint! I made half of the recipe and made around 30 mini eclairs. Even with being so small, they took over 20 minutes to bake. I decided to go with chocolate pastry cream to fill these, and I am so glad I did, it is so delicious!!!! Seriously, my dreams are made of stuff like this chocolate pastry cream. I've been spreading the leftovers on chocolate-chip oatmeal cookies, yum! The vanilla glaze provided quite the challenge! When I was mixing it I kept thinking it should be thinner, but then it would drip right off of the eclairs. I decided to top them with some sprinkles that I bought when I made cake donuts a few weeks ago. I definitely want to make full-sized eclairs someday soon, and try different flavours!
