This is heaven for all chocoholics! My sister-in-law gave me the recipe in high school over 30 years ago, since then it has become a signature dish. Several of my children's friends request it for their birthdays. Don't let the length of the prep. discourage you. The ring is fast and easy to make. I have made it in heart, candy cane and tree shapes for different occasions. You can also make bite size or full size individual puffs (or anything in between), though the ring is the quickest to make.
