    I'm looking for a good chocolate crème pâtissière recipe! I tasted some really wonderful éclairs glazed in chocolate with such an amazing filling! I've tried making the choux pastry (with some success) but the perfect filling still eludes me!

    When you find what you're looking for, please share your recipe. I've made e lairs before and mine did not taste good at all. I'm thinking it was the filling because my crust came out fine.

    Absolutely! It all has to do with the filling. The choux pastry for the crusts is the easy part! I've never been able to get that silky-smooth texture! It's either too soggy or else too hard or else too lumpy!
