Kicked up Cream Puff Recipe
Great Holiday Treats

I had a few days off from the restaurant and came across a cream puff recipe. I haven’t made cream puffs since I was in vocational school over 30 years ago. This is my kicked up cream puff recipe made with Café Patron cream. It’s a nice holiday treat.

  I used a cream puff recipe (Pate a Choux) from All Recipes. I forgot how simple the dough is to make especially with my kitchen aid mixer.

 For the Café Patron cream I used a pudding shot recipe of mine. I changed it up a little by using vanilla pudding instead of chocolate because I covered the cream puffs with chocolate.

Pudding Shot Ingredients:

2 pkgs vanilla pudding mix, I’ve used chocolate last time. I think banana pudding will be next.

1 cup whole mix

1 cup Cafe Patron tequila

1 1/2 pt heavy cream

Chocolate Glaze:

1/2 cup heavy cream

6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips

Mix pudding, milk and tequila, put in fridge to set up a little. In a mixer, add cream and whip till stiff.

Now take pudding and add to cream. Whip till it’s mixed through. Will resemble a mouse’. Nice and creamy.

Once the cream puffs have cooled, pump in cream using a pastry bag and small tip. Bring heavy cream to a boil till cream starts to foam. In a bowl, add hot cream to semi sweet chocolate chips and whisk till chocolate melts.  Dip cream puffs in chocolate. I had some grated coconut and figured it would go nice on top. With the leftover Café Patron cream, I made pudding shots. As a nice surprise, a few of the cream puffs have a special cherry in them.

For an added kick, I add a cherry soaked in 151 Rum.

Next will be a Black Forest cake using this Café Patron cream and the special cherries. More fun holiday treats.
