Profiterole - French Pastry Balls in Nutella Chocolate Sauce

Profiterole is a dish prepared with pastry balls filled either with whipped cream, pastry cream or simply served along with chocolate sauce..This dessert is quite common in France and i'll get them usually from supermarket, this time i wanted to make them at home that too with nutella spread as a smooth chocolate sauce using some low fat cream, u can serve this profiterole just by dusting powder sugar, either with caramel or with chopped fruits else with a simple chocolate sauce, since am a chocoholic person my choice went for this quick and delicious nutella chocolate sauce..This pastry balls goes for the same prepartion and baking procedure exactly like Chouquette, just u need to skip the sugar pearls that all...Sending this yummy profiteroles to AWED-French guest hosted by me, event by DK..

Profiterole

1/3cup Milk
1/2cup Water
3/4cup All purpose flour
100grms Butter
1/2tsp Salt
4nos Eggs (beatened)
1no Egg yolk

Preheat the oven to 350F, add the water, milk,sugar, butter in a pan and bring them boil in medium flame; once the butter gets melts, take the pan from the flame and add immediately the flour,mix well and cook in simmer again until the dough get stiff..

Transfer this dough to a large bowl, add the beatened eggs one by one until the dough turns like puree but slightly stiff, now fill this dough in a pastry bag and pipe out small quantity of this dough over a baking sheet lined in a baking tray, slightly brush the chouquette with beatened egg yolk and bake them in middle rack for 20minutes..

For Nutella Chocolate Sauce:
2tbsp Nutella spread
1tsp Confectioner's sugar
1/4cup Low fat cream

Heat the cream in simmer, add the nutella spread and confectioner's sugar, once everything get well mixed, put off the stove..Pour this chocolate sauce in a serving bowl, arrange the already prepared pastry balls and pour few teaspoons of this chocolate sauce over the pastry balls and arrange in fridge..Serve chilled..
