S’mores Mini Eclairs

This is an idea whose time has come.  If you bring these to a summer cookout, you’re going to be a hero.  Everyone loves s’mores, and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like an eclair (much like a parfait -check your Shrek). The combination is a treat everyone will remember long after they lick the chocolate off their fingers.  Hope you like it.
Choux pastry:
1 cup butter
1 cup water
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
4 eggs
Preheat oven to 400
Boil water, butter, and salt; remove from heat
Add flour and mix
Add one egg at a time and beat until smooth
Let cool for 20 minutes
Line baking sheet with parchment
Spoon mixture into a piping bag or a large plastic storage bag (cut one of the bottom corners)
Pipe mixture on parchment in 2 x 3 inch tube shapes
Bake for 22-25 minutes
Let cool for 30 minutes
Filling:
1 stick butter at room temperature
1 7-oz jar marshmallow cream
2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Beat together marshmallow and butter
Add vanilla and beat
Add powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time and beat until smooth
Topping:
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
Melt chocolate and milk in microwave in 25 seconds bursts
Add butter and stir until smooth
Crush graham crackers
(You know what also works great – a heating pad will melt the chocolate and control the heat.)
Assembly:
Spoon filling into a piping bag with a large tip
Push tip into the short end of the pastry
Fill eclairs with marshmallow mixture
Top with melted chocolate
Sprinkle graham crackers to top
If you have a blow torch, now is the time to burn any of the marshmallow that’s showing
Serve
