    KelBel's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by a co-worker. She brought a piece in for me for breakfast one day and I immediately asked for the recipe. This tastes just like a real bakery style cream puff, without all of the work or expense. Cooking time includes 1 hour chill time.

      UPDATE: I've made these many times since my initial review, and they are one of our family's favorites. I've prepared them again this week in honor of the Cookathon for KelBel. (I made them this time using 1% milk and the filling wasn't as firm as when I've used whole or 2%.) INITIAL REVIEW: I wasn't sure this would taste like a bakery cream puff, but it sure did! Being chocolate lovers, I made double the chocolate sauce and thinly iced the squares rather than drizzle them with the chocolate mixture. It turned out just like the baked cream puffs at our grocery store, but cost a LOT less as you said. They were great, and I've promised to make them again next week. Thanks for sharing this recipe, KelBel!
