Vanilla Cream Puffs…with a hint of cocoa…

An oldie but goodie! An awesome recipe for when you’re running low on groceries!

There are probably hundreds of cream puff recipes out there, but the trick is to make it your own.  For myself….it’s all in the cocoa!

Start with a basic Vanilla Pudding:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Heat the milk, then add the dry and slowly stir until it thickens. Place in the fridge to set….

For the puffs…a basic Biscuit Mix! Follow the recipe for biscuits, just add about a 1/2 cup of sugar and throw in a tablespoon or two of COCOA! Drop in large clumps onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake using the box directions…typically it’s 425 * for 12-15 minutes.  Double check your box to be sure….

That lovely brown…is the fabulous Cocoa ❤

Then just slice and fill!
