Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Puffs

Desserts are one of our favorite things to make for our guests and these cream puffs do not disappoint!


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (Nutella)
  • 1 (8 oz) carton frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside
  2. For pastry: in a medium saucepan combine the water, butter and salt. Bring to boiling. Immediately add flour all at once; stir vigorously. Cook and stir until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Drop 12 heaping tablespoons of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and firm. Prick puffs with a sharp knife to allow steam to escape. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool.
  4. For filling: in a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese and 1/3 cup of the chocolate-hazelnut spread. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined. Fold in the whipped topping until combined. Cover and chill until serving.
  5. Just before serving, cut tops from puffs. Remove soft dough from inside and spoon about 1/3 cup of Nutella filling into bottom half of puff. Replace top half.
  6. Place the remaining 1/3 1/3 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high form 30-40 seconds or until softened. Using a spoon, drizzle spread over puffs. Serve immediately, refrigerate leftovers.
