Light and airy pastry puffs filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with peppermint hot fudge. An elegant and beautiful dessert for the holidays.
Plan on serving 2-3 profiteroles per person.
Make ahead tips:
-Bake and cool the pastry puffs a few hours in advance and store them tightly covered at room temperature until you are ready to serve dessert.
-Pre-scoop the ice cream (make sure the scoops will fit inside your pastry). Tightly cover the scooped ice cream in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet in the freezer. No scooping ice cream while your guests wait!
-Combine the hot fudge sauce and peppermint extract in advance and transfer it to a microwave safe container. Heat it and pour it onto the profiteroles right before serving.
