Over the winter our family loved curling up to watch Master Chef junior together. One of the amazing desserts the kids made on the show was Croquembouche. All of our eyes became very bright when we saw this delicious master piece and decided we would like to try to make one for our Peterson Christmas Party.
I decided that instead of trying to make the pastry ourself I would buy a box of cream puffs from Costco :) You get 100 puffs for under $10, luckily because of Christmas they were on sale for even cheaper!
I looked up a lot of recipes on how to make the prefect caramel for the "glue". Once the glue was made we started to assemble our masterpiece. I think I have the cutest kitchen helper EVER!!!
To finish off we sprinkled it with icing sugar! It was so delicious and a BIG hit at the party :) One thing to remember for next time is it must stay somewhat cool cause if it gets too warm the glue starts to melt and your tower will come tumbling down...
