• Ingredients
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter (no substitutes)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups whipping cream, whipped
  • 3 cups chopped fresh strawberries

Directions

  • In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, bring water, butter and salt to a boil. Add the flour and cocoa all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until smooth and shiny.
  • Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 3 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until set and browned. Remove to wire racks. Immediately split puffs open; remove and discard soft dough from inside. Cool puffs completely.
  • In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Fold in whipped cream and strawberries. Fill bottom halves of puffs; replace tops. Serve immediately.
