Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. The previous day we make the choux.
For the Choux Pastry
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F.
  2. Line with parchment paper two baking sheets.
  3. In pot add the water, butter, and salt and heat until the butter has melted bringing them to a rolling boil.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat, and add the flour all at once, stirring vigorously.
  5. Return the pot to the stove and cook, stirring, over medium heat until the mixture smooths out; this should take less than a minute.
  6. Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
  7. Transfer the mixture to your stand mixer and beat in the eggs one at a time.
  8. Beat for at least 2 minutes after adding the last egg.
  9. With a piping bag, pipe the batter into rounded clouds.
  10. Bake the pastries for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 170°C / 350°F and bake for an additional 20 minutes, until pastries are a medium golden brown.
  11. Don't open the oven door while the pastries are baking.
  12. Remove the pastries.
  13. With a tooth pick make a small hole in the top of each, and return them to the oven for 2 minutes, to allow the steam to escape.
  14. Place them on a rack to cool.
For the Vanilla Ice Cream
  1. In your mixer bowl beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  2. Add the condensed milk, the vanilla extract and the alcohol and fold gently.

  1. In a glass bowl combine the chocolate, light cream and honey.
  2. Put it in the microwave and melt the chocolate in 30 seconds intervals.
  3. Incorporate the butter and vanilla extract.
