Gianduia-Filled Profiteroles with Double Chocolate Sauce & Toasted Hazelnuts

Featured in our 2017 Christmas Guide
Scott Phillips

Servings: six.

A classic dessert is given a new spin with the addition of gianduia. I like this best when the mousse is cold, the puffs are room temperature, and the sauce is warm. This recipe uses a bit less than a full recipe of Gianduia Mousse, but don’t worry about the leftovers: The extra mousse is delicious when eaten on its own, topped with a dollop of whipped cream.

  • Use a sharp knife to cut each pastry puff in half horizontally, leaving a small hinge on one side if possible. Spoon or pipe 1 to 2 Tbs. of the gianduia mousse into the pastry bottom—the exact amount of filling is a matter of preference, and you’ll have plenty of extra. Close the top half of the puff over the filling.
  • Arrange five puffs per plate in a pyramid . Drizzle each serving with warm sauce and sprinkle about 1/2 Tbs. of finely chopped hazlenuts over the top. Serve immediately.

    beautiful, the mousse is easy & very tasty (much like baci) the profiteroles don't hold super well... it is definitely best to serve right away
