Hot water              1 cup
Unsalted butter      ½ cup
Salt                         ½ tsp
All-purpose flour     1 cup
Eggs                       4


Icing sugar    
Whipped cream
Chocolate gnash sauce
8oz semi-bitter chocolate 
Whipping cream       1 cup


1.    Heat chocolate and cream for a minute in the microwave, mix it well. And chocolate gnash sauce is ready!
2.   Preheat the oven to 220 degrees and prepare tray with butter paper.
3.   In a heavy bottom sauce pan, combine hot water, butter and salt over medium heat. Bring to boil and add flour all at once. Whisk vigorously to take out lumps of flour.
4.   Stir for 2-3 minutes using a wooden spoon and cook until mixture is clear from the sides and forms a ball around your spoon in the middle.
5.   Remove from heat; add eggs one by one and stir with a wooden spoon until mixed. Once all eggs are added, stir some more until batter is smooth and shiny.
6.   Put the batter into a piping bag with a large nozzle and make 2 inch rounds on a baking tray at a distance of 1.5 inches from one another.
7.   Sprinkle a few drops of water on the tray to create steam in the oven.
8.   Bake for 15 minutes at 220 degrees and then reduce the heat to 160 degrees and bake for 15-20 minutes more. (The puffs should be brown from both sides.)
9.   Remove to a cooling rack and cool completely.
10. Fill with whipped cream and chocolate gnash and sprinkle icing sugar.
11.  Serve immediately or refrigerate for 6 hours.
