Heart Shaped  Cream Puffs

Valentine's day with these little heart shaped cream puffs is a great way to end the evening.

With such adorable little desserts, you'll feel the love in every raspberry and chocolate packed bite.



– 1 pint whipping cream – 6 oz fresh raspberries – 1/3 cup sugar – 1 tsp vanilla extract  – 2 sheets puff pastry (1 box) – 1 large egg  – 1 Tbsp water – 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate

– Thaw your puff pastry on the counter for a good hour or until it's thawed enough to cut and unfold without breaking.

– Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.



– In a small bowl combine the egg and the water and beat well. Set aside. This is the egg wash.

– Place the metal bowl of a stand mixer and the electric beaters in the freezer. This will help get the whipped cream to form up more quickly.

– Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out the shapes from the puff pastry. Try to squeeze the hearts as close together as you can because you will not be able to re-roll the dough for another use.

– Place the heart puff pastries on a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with the egg wash.

– Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and puffed. Allow to cool completely.

– In a small bowl, mash the raspberries with half of the sugar. If desired, you can strain the juice to remove seeds, or leave them in.

– Remove the metal bowl and beaters from the freezer.

– Pour the whipping cream into the bowl and beat on high until soft peaks form (about 1-2 minutes).

– Add in the vanilla and the remaining sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form (about another 3 minutes).

– Fold in the raspberry mixture until well combined.

– Place the raspberry whipped cream into a bag with the corner snipped off, or use a pastry bag with fitted round nozzle.

– Slice the puff pastry hearts in half horizontally and pipe the whipped cream onto the bottom half before topping with the other half like a sandwich.

– Continue until all cream puffs have been filled.

– In a small bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring well between each until smooth.

– Drizzle the chocolate over the top of the cream puffs and add festive sprinkles if desired.

Serve and Enjoy!
