This topping is very close (albeit counterfeit) to Sanders Milk Chocolate Hot Fudge toppping and only to be used in extreme emergencies when you cannot get your hands on the original.
Bring water and butter to a rolling boil.
Stir in flour over low heat about 1 minute or until mixture forms ball.
Remove from heat.
Beat in eggs (1 or 2 at a time is easiest).
Drop on ungreased baking sheet. (By teaspoons up to ¼ cup depending on size of puff desired). A rounded teaspoon is recommended for sandwich
size as the puff up a lot.
Bake at 400° F for 20 minutes for small to 40 minutes for large. May also shape into fingers for eclairs.
These puffs taste like the ones that Sanders used. Make the large size. Cut off the tops, scoop in vanilla bean ice cream, put top back on, and drench with Sanders Milk Chocolate Hot
