Finally I've completed a Daring Baker's challenge! This challenge came from Pierre Herme and a cookbook written by Dorie Greenspan called Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Herme. I made these eclairs last weekend and had the best time making them! The inside is filled with chocolate pastry cream and instead of dunking the entire tops in chocolate ganache, I chose to drizzle it, creating a nicer presentation. I made a few cream puffs with the leftover dough. I'm not so into puffed pastry sweets but these were really good. I had made a cream puff ring a while back to which this recipe was significantly similar to considering they both derived from Dorie Greenspan.
I'm looking forward for the next Daring Baker's challenge for the month of September! Check out the Daring Baker's blogroll for all the other fabulous eclairs!
