Somehow when making profiteroles once, I ended up with leftover choux puffs and not enough filling. Sure, it would’ve been easy enough to fill them with scoops of vanilla ice-cream and serve them blanketed with a glossy chocolate sauce but I decided to experiment with other things instead – namely strawberry jam and marshmallows.
Nothing special, just store-bought marshmallows and some really good Ricardoes strawberry jam Mistress had brought back from her travels. Sandwiched into choux puffs and heated in the oven until the innards become gooey, they reminded me of Wagon Wheel biscuits once they’d been doused liberally with chocolate sauce.
To make them taste more like Wagon Wheels I’d recommended using more jam than the teaspoon or so I did above. Otherwise it’s just a matter of splitting choux puffs and the same number of marshmallows in half, and layering them with together with jam squished in the middle. Wrap them up in foil before popping into a preheated 200°C oven for about 5 minutes before unwrapping and heating for a further 5 minutes for the outsides to crisp up. Serve with chocolate sauce.
And because I made these originally with Mistress in my company, I’d like to take this opportunity to also wish her a very happy birthday for today ♥
