Ice Cream Puffs

2 cups water
1 cup (2 sticks/8 oz./226g) butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
8 eggs
1 container of vanilla ice cream
Ready-made store bought Chocolate syrup

Preheat oven to 400ºF/200ºC.

Boil water and butter in a small saucepan. Add flour and stir briskly over low heat until a ball forms. Remove mixture from heat. Using a spoon, beat in eggs one at a time. Mix until smooth. With a spoon, drop dough onto ungreased pan 3-inches apart. Bake 35 to 45 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven, set aside to cool.

When cream puffs have cooled, slice in half. Place a small scoop of ice cream between the two halves. Drizzle cream puffs with chocolate syrup.
