Amazing chocolate eclairs recipe





These chocolate éclairs are so good, that I will savor them one last time, an excellent idea it seems to me, before leaving the blue planet, without regrets and without remorse.
A delicious chocolate eclair!
I received a lot of compliments about this lightning bolt.
Mainly thanks to the creaminess I think, because the creamy chocolate filling makes a huge difference with store-bought éclairs which are content with pastry cream, so a little pasty and a little too heavy.
