ECLAIRS with COFFEE CREAM & CHOCOLATE

ECLAIRS con CREMA AL CAFFEE & CIOCCOLATO”  in italiano

These are my super delicious Eclairs with a coffee filling and a thick chocolate coating. Coffee & Chocolate is a combination I personally like a lot, love indulging in a nice piece of dark chocolate dipped into hot coffee. That’s why I thought about making these Eclairs with coffee and chocolate, sweet and delicious combination!

This recipe has been a great success at Sleek!
