This mini sweet treat is filled with all the classic flavors of a traditional éclair with a fun inside out twist. These Inside Out Mini Eclairs are filled with sweet, airy chocolate mousse and is topped with a delicious white chocolate ganache. If you enjoy the cream-filled puff that makes a chocolate éclair, you will love these miniature chocolate-filled eclairs. Their heavenly sweetness is divine!
I’ve made my fair share of classic eclairs in my day. You know, the ones that are 6-inches long and are filled with sweet vanilla pastry cream and finished with a drizzle of milk chocolate. These éclairs are better! I promise.
They are simple in the making and worth every effort. 😉
Start with basic pate a choux dough to form the light, eggy, hollow shells that will house the scrumptious chocolate filling. You can find the full printable recipe here. As the piped dough bakes, the inside becomes airy and hollow while the outside becomes crisp and golden brown. They are so good. I like to use a large plastic piping coupler and a ziplock bag to pipe the finger-size stripes of dough onto a piece of parchment baking paper.
To give these éclairs their fun inside out twist, I switched the filling and ganache flavors. The filling is a sweet, creamy EASY 3-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse. The chocolate ganache is a delicious white chocolate ganache.
The delicious chocolate center sets these little finger desserts apart from the rest. They are filled with an airy chocolate mousse that is so quick and easy. This chocolate-y filling takes minutes to make and only has 3 ingredients. You can’t go wrong.
The finishing touch is added with a yummy white chocolate ganache and a drizzled of milk chocolate.
These éclairs can be made in this fun miniature size or as a regular-sized eclair.
Have a tray of these ready for your next BBQ, family gathering, or date night in, and everyone will be blown away. Everyone will be surprised to hear you made these sweet treats yourself.
