I am sharing the recipe for these beautiful and amazingly delicious chocolate puffs over on the KitchenAid’s KITCHENTHUSIAST blog. But if you are a hopeless (hopeful?) romantic like me I hope you dont mind me sharing my whistful and long winded imaginings here.
What cream puffs symbolized to me was romantic decadence. I had always envisioned a beautifully set table of crystal glass and sweetened iced tea hiding precariously amid the willow tress while a warm afternoon breeze gently kicked up napkin edges and guided condensation drips off their coarse. I imagined lounging ladies with their elbows propped on the table and head resting on smooth lavender scented lotioned hands. They are gazing upon a perfectly puffed and whipped topping filled pastry that seductively beckoned them in spite of their desire to eat daintily.
Having created this perfect creamed puff fantasy in my mind, it never occurred to me that I could make them in my own home and experience the amazingness while sitting in my kitchen. But I am thrilled that I did; because these puffs can truly transport you to a happy place. A place filled with the woodsy scents of fall, with the trees covered in multi-colored leaves and the warmth of a crackling fire on a cool autumn day.
These chocolate cream puffs are paired with the most light and fluffy pumpkin whipped topping I have ever made, and all thanks to my KitchenAid Food Processor. The food processor produces a light yet long-lasting cream with a perfectly velvety and smooth texture. You simply must try!
