Chocolate Cream Puffs with Strawberry Truffle Filling

Puffs
1 cup butter
2 cups boiling water
2 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 T sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
8 eggs

Filling
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup strawberry jam
2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese
1 - 8 oz. carton frozen whipped topping
whole fresh strawberries for garnish

Grease a baking sheet and pre-heat oven to 400F.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter in the boiling water. Add flour, cocoa, sugar and salt while stirring vigorously. Cook until mixture forms a ball that won't separate. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition until smooth. Drop about 1/4 cup batter for each puff on a greased baking sheet. Space puffs about 3 inches apart. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in top of a double boiler. In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese and jam until smooth. Beat in melted chocolate then stir in whipped topping.

When puffs have been removed from oven, allow them to cool for a few minutes, then split them in half and remove any soft dough inside. Cool completely. Fill with cream cheese mixture and garnish with fresh strawberries.

Makes 2 dozen puffs
