Easy Profiteroles

Easy Profiteroles

For the holidays, I had a very big craving for profiteroles. These little puffs filled with ice cream and accompanied by a hot chocolate sauce are always so pleasant to taste. It’s kind of my indulgence. Well, I also wanted easy and easy desserts. As a result, I couldn’t see myself preparing my puffs at the last moment and garnishing them with purchased or homemade ice cream just before tasting them. For a very short while, I even considered going to the frozen food store to buy some. And then, I told myself that it would always be much better if I prepared them myself and kept them in the freezer until serving time. So I imagined a little trick to have something similar to the ones I could have bought.

And to make it extra easy, I used my favorite homemade ice cream recipe without an ice cream maker. Thanks to this recipe, making profiteroles becomes child’s play. The just-cooked and cooled puffs are topped with a mousse that will glaze slowly in the freezer. There is nothing more to do. When tasting them, just take them out a few minutes before. The ice cream inside is perfectly creamy. A real treat served with hot chocolate sauce.

To finish: I flavored my ice cream with tonka bean and amaretto. You can of course use vanilla. Alcohol is not mandatory, but thanks to it, the ice cream is even smoother. You can choose other alcohols.
