Things you'll need

Ingredients Cream puff
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • ¾ cups butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 5 to 7 eggs
  • 1 box of instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • Medium bowl
  • Whisk
  • Decorating bag
  • Small saucepan
  • Whisk
  • Wooden spoon
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Hand mixer
  • Wooden skewer
  • Chocolate vermicelli sprinkles
  • Dark cocoa candy melts
  • Decorating bags fitted with #1, #2A, & large open star tips

Let's get Started!

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. In a sauce pan combine water, butter, salt and sugar over high heat until it comes to a boil.
  3. Add flour and mix until a dough forms. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes and then remove from heat. Transfer the dough to a large bowl and whisk with a hand mixer to cool the dough slightly.
  4. Mix in as many eggs as it takes for the dough to come back together.
  5. Fill a decorating bag with dough and squeeze 4 dabs onto the corners of a piece of parchment paper. Place the parchment in a baking tray.
  6. Fit a decorating bag with a large open star tip and fill it with dough. Pipe shells onto the baking sheet for the hedgehog bodies (PICTURE at 4:35) .
  7. Scoop dough into a decorating bag with a #2A tip and pipe a sphere on top of the shell (PICTURE at 4:40). Do this for rest of your hedgehogs.
  8. Bake at 400ºF for 15 minutes and then turn the heat to 350ºF and bake another 15 to 20 minutes. Let the puffs cool completely.
  9. Prepare pudding refrigerate for 5 minutes. Scoop into decorating bags with tips cut off.

Time to decorate!

  1. Use a wooden skewer to poke a hole at the bottom (not through) of each puff.
  2. Dip the body in melted dark chocolate candy melts and then roll in vermicelli to decorate.
  3. Once the chocolate has set, pipe chocolate pudding into the holes.
  4. Use a #1 tip to pipe eyes and a nose onto each face with melted dark cocoa candy melts.
  5. TaDa! You can take these Hedgehog Cream Puffs to Infinity and Beyond!
