Cream puffs are one of those bizarrely lush desserts that people rarely consider making at home. They somehow seem too high maintenance for the home cook. I’m Jelli from Jellibean Journals, and today Claire has kindly given me the privilege of demystifying cream puffs with you.

Let me show you how easy it is to whip up your own batch of sinfully delicious Nutella cream puffs.

Cream puffs are made from French pâte à choux (choux pastry). The only thing complicated about making it is the name. Anybody wanna lend some French lessons with that pronunciation? Fingers crossed that my university French professor isn’t reading this…

Choux pastry is made by heating water, salt, and butter in a saucepan. Once the butter melts, all you’ve gotta do is stir in a few basic ingredients and spoon or pipe the smooth, shiny dough onto a prepared baking sheet. The oven’s heat will magically puff up the pastry into delicate, hollow, homemade cream puff shells perfect for packing in gobs of sweet Nutella cream.
