Directions

1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

2: Place water, salt and butter in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and quickly add the flour. Mix immediately with a wooden spoon, set pan over medium heat and continue stirring until mixture forms a thick consistency and is no longer moist. Put mixture into a food processor and cool it down with a few turns. (The dough may break up but it will come together when the eggs are added in the next step.) 

3: Beat the eggs with a fork until you see air bubbles. Set aside a tablespoon of egg for an eggwash. 

4: Slowly add the beaten eggs to the food processor, processing every 5 seconds until the eggs are thoroughly mixed into the dough and texture is smooth and very fluffy. 

5: Grease a cookie sheet or use a silpat liner. Place rounded mounds of dough (about 2 tablespoons each) 2 inches apart on the sheet. Brush eggwash on the tops. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes until the dough is cooked and forms a browned puff. Let cool. 

6: Carefully make a slice in the top of each puff; the slice should extend halfway through the center of the puff. Scoop out excess dough. Put 3 cups of truwhip into a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of peppermint extract and mix thoroughly. Spoon truwhip into emptied puff shells. Refrigerate before serving. 

7: Just before serving, melt chocolate and milk in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds. Mix with a whisk until it reaches sauce consistency, adding a few drops more milk, – if necessary. Drizzle over chilled, filled creampuffs before serving.
