Chocolate Eclair Hearts
Bake some sweet hearts for your sweetheart. In a twist on traditional oblong eclairs, the light French pastry known as pate a choux is piped into heart shapes and filled with milk-chocolate whipped cream. Topped with a glossy layer of dark chocolate glaze, these treats are perfect after a dinner party or dining a deux.
Unfilled, uncut hearts can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to three days; reheat in a 350-degree oven until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes, then let cool before using. The filling can be made through step 7 and refrigerated overnight.
