DIRECTIONS

  • Grease a baking sheet and preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter in the boiling water.
  • Add flour, cocoa, sugar and salt while stirring vigorously.
  • Cook until mixture forms a ball that won't separate.
  • Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition until smooth.
  • Drop about 1/4 cup batter for each puff on a greased baking sheet and space puffs about 3 inches apart.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in top of a double boiler.
  • In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese and jam until smooth.
  • Beat in melted chocolate then stir in whipped topping.
  • When puffs have been removed from oven, allow them to cool for a few minutes, then split them in half and remove any soft dough inside.
  • Cool completely then fill with cream cheese mixture.
