So mine isn’t exactly a ring. I decided that I didn’t want a full ring to have around, so I only made part of the recipe and made small cream puffs instead. They were more like eclairs, which used to be one of my favorite treats. I haven’t had one in a while, so it was nice to have something like that again. I wasn’t sure if I would like the cream or not, but it was really good. I liked the peppermint flavor and how it went with the chocolate. The recipe calls for fresh mint leaves in the cream, but the grocery stores around here aren’t exactly known for having anything remotely unusual, so I had to use peppermint extract instead. It ended up working fine. The cream had great flavor. I really liked the dough too because it was nice and flaky. Layers of dough in a dessert almost always win in my book🙂 Overall I enjoyed this recipe and would recommend it. This week’s recipe was chosen by Caroline of A Consuming Passion. Next week we’ll be making Mixed Berry Cobbler, chosen by Beth of Our Sweet Life. Be sure to check out the other cream puff rings made by the wonderful TWD bakers!
