Ingredients

Cream Puffs

1 cup water

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

Filling

1 (3.3-ounce) package white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix

1 1/4 cups cold milk

1 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream whipped

Decorations

Large marshmallows

Decorator sugar

Toothpicks

Vanilla-flavored candy-coating (almond bark), melted

Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Black string licorice, cut into thin 3/4-inch strips

Small round pink candies, such as mini candy-covered chocolate pieces

Powdered sugar, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine water and butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 4-7 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil.

  3. STEP 3

    Reduce heat to low; stir in flour vigorously until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a ball. Remove from heat. Beat in 1 egg at a time until mixture is smooth.

  4. STEP 4

    Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, 3 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 35-40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Pierce each puff gently with fork to allow steam to escape. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Prepare pudding mix, using 1 1/4 cups milk, as directed on package. After pudding is set, gently stir in whipped cream. Cover; refrigerate up to 4 hours or until serving time.

  6. STEP 6

    Create bunnies by cutting off cream puff tops. Cut large marshmallows crosswise into 3 pieces. Dip cut-sides into decorator sugar for ears. Using toothpicks, attach sugared marshmallows into top of cream puff for ears. Use melted candy coating to attach chocolate chips for eyes.

  7. STEP 7

    Fill bottom half of cream puff with 1/3 cup filling just before serving. Press licorice strips for whiskers and pink candies for nose into filling. Place decorated cream puff top over filling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

Tip #1

-Remove toothpicks from ears before serving.

Tip #2

-In place of toothpicks, bunny ears can also be attached to cream puff using additional melted candy coating. Hold marshmallow ears in place a few seconds until set.

I was searching for a recipe I remembered from my childhood, making this with my grandmother. All I could remember was that it was a simple recipe, mixing the flour into the boiling water and stirring the eggs...and eating them as soon as they came out of the oven! This recipe exceeded my expectations and was very simple and quick! I did not do the bunny thing, just made the basic dough, sliced after removing from oven to release steam. Buttered and filled with fresh warm blueberries... needless to say I couldn't eat just one. Thank you!

I made the cream puffs for the first time ever, and they were really easy! I didn't bother with the filling or decorating, as I used ice cream and Fudge sauce like Sanders in Michigan served fro years. Yummy!!
