With all of the heavy desserts around this time of year, sometimes it's nice to have something that doesn't hit your digestive system so hard when you still need your sweet fix. These chocolate-drizzled orange cream puffs are just the ticket.
The puffs are made from a basic pate a choux pastry dough. It's a really lovely dough that's relatively simple to make and it comes together so nicely! I was surprised at how easy it was to work with, and now I'm excited to explore other ways of using this dough.
The puffs are cut in half and then filled with a lighter-than-air pastry cream with the perfect hint of orange flavor.
And because chocolate makes everything better - and because chocolate and orange are an amazing duo - they are finished off with a drizzle of chocolate.
