Cream Puff Dessert

I love cream puffs! When I have the time, I like to make individual ones and when I don't, this is the perfect solution. This is a simple and fast way to have the same wonderful taste without all the work. 

Ingredients are as follows:

1 C water
1/2 C butter
1 C flour
4 eggs

1 C chocolate chips 

1 1/2 C milk
1 (3.5 ounce) package of instant vanilla pudding

8 ounces cream cheese, softened 
4 ounces frozen whipped topping (cool whip)

2 ounces of shaved chocolate (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium sized saucepan, bring water and butter to a rolling boil.  Reduce heat to low and stir in flour.

Stir until it sticks together and pulls away from the sides of the pan.

Remove from heat; stir in eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one.

Continue to stir until you get a creamy (sticky) consistency.

Spread into an ungreased 9 x 13 inch pan. 

Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes (It will be golden brown).

Remove from oven and sprinkle on chocolate chips. Wait a minute until they begin to melt, then spread evenly over the dough; set aside to cool.

Whisk milk and instant vanilla pudding together, set aside to thicken.

Cream together the cream cheese and frozen whipped topping.

Now add the thickened vanilla pudding into the cream cheese mixture and mix again until it's all blended together.

Pour mixture onto the chocolate covered dough.

Sprinkle on some shaved chocolate. Cool in refrigerator for an hour before serving.

Slice, serve and enjoy!

  23. my mom makes this and it is so good

  24. I will mix it with real whipped cream because I don't use any non-dairy or processed foods. I image this will taste delicious!!!

  25. Heads Up! When I put this in the fridge to chill...that chocolate layer got hard....and I mean Hard! Didn't anyone else have this happen?

    1. The chocolate does get hard once it sets up. If you prefer you could always omit the chocolate chips and swirl on chocolate syrup instead.
