    Chocolate Eclairs

    1 cup water
    1/2 cup butter
    1 cup flour
    1/4 tsp. salt
    4 eggs

    FILLING:

    2 1/2 cups cold milk
    1 pkg. (5.1-oz.s) instant vanilla pudding mix
    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla extract

    CHOCOLATE ICING:

    2 squares (1 oz. each) semisweet chocolate
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 cup sugar
    2 to 3 tablespoons hot water

    In a saucepan over medium heat, bring water and butter to a boil. Add flour and salt all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms. remove from heat. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    With a tablespoon or a pastry bag witha No. 10 or larger tip, spoon or pipe dough into 4-inch long x 1-1/2 inch wide strips on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 325; bake 20 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.

    For filling, combine milk and pudding mix; mix according to pkg. directions. In a mixing bow, beat cream until soft peaks form. Beat in sugar and vanilla; fold into pudding. Fill cooled sells. (Chill remaining pudding for another use).

    For icing, melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in sugar. Add hot water until icing is smooth and reaches desired consistency. Cool slightly. Spread over the eclairs. Chill until serving.
