Nutella caramel eclairs




I have leftover of dulce de leche / caramel that I need to use up soon,but I don't have enough to make anything with it, So I mix it with nutella to make topping for mini eclairs, It was perfect bite size eclairs with rich combination of caramel and nutella.




Pastry:
- 8 Tbsp unsalted butter plus extra for greasing
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup all purpose flour,shifted
- 4 eggs, beaten

Filling :

- 1/2 cup nutella
- 1/2 cup dulce de leche / caramel

Direction :

Preheat the oven to 425 F/220 C
grease two baking sheets,Heat the butter and water in a pan until boiling.

remove from the heat,quickly tip in the flour and beat until smooth,transfer to a bowl.

Gradually beat in the eggs with an electric handheld mixer,until glossy.

spoon into a piping bag with a large plain nozzle and pipe up to eighteen 31/2-inch/9-Cm finger on the baking sheets

Bake in the preheat oven for 12- 15 minutes,until golden brown
Cut a slit down the side of each eclair to release steam,bake for another 2 minutes,cool on wire rack.

mix the filling ingredients until smooth,pipe mixture into the eclair,
dust with confectioner's sugar and ready to serve.
