Claire Saffitz Makes Croquembouche, A Cream Puff Tower

Claire Saffitz, author of the new cookbook “Dessert Person,” is in the Munchies Test Kitchen making the Eiffel Tower of pastries: croquembouche. This celebratory dessert is perfect for the holiday season– a tower of individual cream puffs coated in crunchy caramel. Claire breaks down each step of the croquembouche process, like making the cream puffs with choux pastry, topping them with craquelin, and filling them with a dark chocolate and creme fraiche cream. The individual puffs are dipped in caramel, assembled into a cone-shaped tower, and drizzled in caramel threads. The result is a pastry masterpiece. Check out the recipe here: to Munchies here:
