Posted 7:05 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: , ,
It is Valentines Day is now here and there is nothing better than to give something that is made from the heart and just as sweet :) As promised I have an egg recipe just for you - with chocolate love heheh :)

Chocolate Eclairs

Eclair:
1/2 C water
1/4 C margarine or butter
1/2 C all purpose flour or self-rising flour
2 eggs

Heat oven to 400°. Heat water and butter to rolling boil in saucepan. Stir in flour. Stir vigorously over low heat till mixture forms a ball. Beat in eggs, all at once; continue beating until smooth. Drop dough by scant 1/4 cupfuls (shaping into a 'log' shape) about 3 inches apart onto un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Cool away from draft...cut open top and remove any filaments of dough. Fill eclairs with filling, replace top, frost.

Filling:
1/3 C sugar
2 T cornstarch
1/8 t salt
2 C milk
2 egg yolks slightly beaten
@ T butter or margarine, softened
2 t vanilla

Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt in saucepan. Stir in milk, gradually. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir for one minute. Stir half the mixture gradually into egg yolks. Add that to the mixture and boil and stir one minute. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and butter. Cool.

Frosting:
Heat 1/2 square (1/2 ounce) unsweetened chocolate and 1/2 teaspoon butter over low heat until melted. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup powdered sugar and about 1 tablespoon hot water. Beat until smooth.

2 squares unsweetened chocolate
2 t butter
2 C powdered sugar
4 T hot water (give or take)

And just to help those that like to watch a cooking demonstration here is a video just for you :)
