    Chocolate Cream Puffs with Strawberry Truffle Filling

    This recipe by Joni Hilton of Sacramento, California was a finalist in the 1997 California Strawberry Festival's Berry Off cooking contest.

    Makes 2 dozen puffs

    1 cup butter
    2 cups boiling water
    2 cups flour
    1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
    2 T sugar
    1/2 tsp. salt
    8 eggs

    2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 cup strawberry jam
    2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese
    1 - 8 oz. carton frozen whipped topping
    whole fresh strawberries for garnish

    Grease a baking sheet and pre-heat oven to 400F.
    In a medium saucepan, melt butter in the boiling water. Add flour, cocoa, sugar and salt while stirring vigorously. Cook until mixture forms a ball that won't separate. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition until smooth. Drop about 1/4 cup batter for each puff on a greased baking sheet. Space puffs about 3 inches apart. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, melt choclate chips in top of a double boiler. In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese and jam until smooth. Beat in melted chocolate then stir in whipped topping.

    When puffs have been removed from oven, allow them to cool for a few minutes, then split them in half and remove any soft dough inside. Cool completely. Fill with cream cheese mixture and garnish with fresh strawberries.
