Yield Makes 1 croquembouche

Number Of Ingredients 6

About 70 doughnut holes of any flavor
Assorted candy decorations such as M&M's, Red Hots, licorice balls, and silver dragées
1/4 cup corn syrup with 1 teaspoon water stirred in
Purchased or homemade chocolate or caramel sauce (optional)
Special Equipment
Clear tape, 18-inch-tall Styrofoam cone (available at floral shops and craft stores), waxed or parchment paper or aluminum foil in color similar to doughnuts, cake-decorating turntable (optional), about 70 toothpicks, thimble, cloth leaves (available at floral shops and craft stores)


  • Using tape, cover cone with paper. Place cone on turntable if using.
  • Arrange 1 ring doughnut holes around base of cone, placing as closely together as possible. Insert toothpick through each doughnut hole into cone to attach doughnut hole to cone, leaving end of toothpick sticking out (you'll push it in later with thimble).
  • Attach second ring of doughnut holes above first, again packing tightly and staggering so doughnut holes in second ring are not directly above doughnut holes in first ring.
  • Continue in same manner to attach remaining doughnut holes. For top tiers, if desired, slice off small amount of each doughnut hole on side facing toward cone to make shape more tapering. Finish covering cone with 1 doughnut hole attached to top of cone.
  • Using thimble, push in toothpicks until not visible.
  • Decorate by pushing candies and leaves into gaps between doughnut holes. If candies won't adhere, dip in corn syrup-water mixtur before attaching.
  • If desired, drizzle with chocolate or caramel sauce. Croquembouche keeps, covered loosely with aluminum foil and refrigerated, 2 to 3 days.

Time 3h30m

Yield 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 18

1/4 -ounce packet unflavored gelatin (2 1/2 teaspoons)
4 cups whole milk
2 vanilla beans
12 large egg yolks
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 tablespoon powdered espresso
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
6 large eggs
3 cups sugar
3 tablespoons light corn syrup


  • For the Cream Filling: Prepare the cream fillings: Sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup cold water in a bowl and set aside to bloom.
  • Place the milk in a pan. Halve the vanilla beans lengthwise; scrape out the seeds with a paring knife, then add the seeds and pods to the milk. Bring to a simmer, then cover and remove from the heat.
  • Whisk the egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium bowl until smooth.
  • Remove the vanilla pods from the milk. Gradually whisk one-third of the warm milk into the egg mixture.
  • Whisk the egg mixture into the remaining milk in the pan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens, 6 minutes. Continue boiling until the mixture is custard-like, 3 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat. Slice the butter into pieces and whisk into the custard, then stir in the gelatin mixture.
  • Microwave the chocolate until melted, 2 to 3 minutes, stirring. Mix 2 tablespoons hot water with the espresso. Transfer half of the cream filling to a bowl, then stir in the chocolate and espresso.
  • Transfer the remaining cream filling to another bowl. Press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the chocolate and vanilla creams and refrigerate until cold and firm, at least 2 hours.
  • When ready to fill the puffs, whip the heavy cream to soft peaks with a mixer. Fold half into the vanilla cream filling and half into the chocolate filling.
  • Transfer each filling to a large pastry bag with a 1/4-inch tip and set aside. (To do this cleanly, cuff the open end of the pastry bag over your hand.)
  • For the Pastry Puffs: Unfilled puffs can be frozen for up to a week. To re-crisp, thaw, then brush with a beaten egg; bake 5 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • While the fillings chill, make the pastry puffs: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Bring 1 1/2 cups water, the butter, sugar and salt to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring to melt the butter.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the flour with a wooden spoon to make a paste. Return to the heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the paste is shiny and pulls away from the pan, 6 to 7 minutes. Cool slightly.
  • Transfer the paste to a stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment on medium-low speed to cool, 1 minute. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Transfer the dough to a large pastry bag with a 1/2-inch tip. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, dabbing a bit of dough under the corners to keep the paper in place. Pipe 1 1/2-inch balls of dough onto the paper (about 48 total).
  • Smooth the dough peaks with a wet finger. Bake until puffed, 15 to 20 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350 degrees and bake until golden, 15 minutes. Turn off the oven; keep the puffs inside 10 minutes to dry out. Pierce each puff with a dry piping tip; transfer to a rack to cool.
  • To Assemble: Fill half of the puffs with chocolate cream and half with vanilla: Insert the tip of the pastry bag into the hole and squeeze until full. Chill the filled puffs 30 minutes before assembling the tower.
  • Make the caramel: Mix the sugar, corn syrup and 1 cup water in a saucepan, cover and bring to a boil over high heat; don't stir. Uncover and boil, swirling the pan, until the syrup turns deep amber, 20 minutes.
  • Immediately dip the bottom of the saucepan in a large bowl of ice water for a few seconds to stop the cooking.
  • Transfer the caramel to a liquid measuring cup and cool slightly (it should still be liquid). Be careful-the caramel will still be hot!
  • Draw a 7-inch circle on parchment paper. Partially dip each filled puff into the caramel and let the excess drip off. Arrange the puffs around the circle. If the caramel hardens, microwave until soft, 45 seconds.
  • Fill the base circle with more puffs for stability, then continue building a conical tower of smaller circles. Top the tower with a single puff. Line your work surface with parchment paper-the next step can be messy.
  • Dip the tip of a fork into the caramel and quickly wave it in circles around the tower to create a web of caramel strands. Repeat. Let set, then slide two spatulas under the paper and transfer the croquembouche to a platter. Tear off the excess paper around the base.
  • To serve, crack the caramel web with the back of a knife, then dismantle the tower and transfer the cream puffs to plates.

Time 2h15m

Number Of Ingredients 15

185g plain flour
175g unsalted butter , cut into pieces
6 large eggs , beaten
9 large egg yolks
150g golden caster sugar
50g plain flour , plus 1 tbsp finely grated zest of 2 lemons, plus 4 tbsp juice
500ml full cream milk
7 tbsp limoncello (Italian lemon liqueur) or an orange flavoured liqueur
400g white chocolate
200g refined caster sugar
mixture of cream and pink sugared almonds , 175g/6oz each
x tubs crystallised whole roses
1 A1 sheet of card
60cm length of string
tape and foil for shaping cone


  • Three days ahead (or 1 month and freeze): preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6/fan oven 180C. Lightly butter 3 large baking sheets. Sift the flour onto a large square of greaseproof paper. Put the butter in a large, heavy-based saucepan with 450ml/3⁄4pint water and gently heat until the butter has melted. Bring to the boil then immediately tip in the flour, all in one go. Beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a ball that comes away from the sides of the pan. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Beat in the eggs, a little at a time, beating well between each addition, until the mixture is glossy and only just holding its shape. You may not need to add all the beaten egg. Spoon and pack half the mixture into a large polythene freezer bag. Twist the opening to secure and snip off a 1cm tip from the corner (or use a piping bag and 1cm plain nozzle).
  • Pipe small rounds, about 2cm in diameter, on to the baking sheets, trimming the paste from the bag with a knife. Leave room between them to allow for spreading. You should end up with about 75 rounds. Bake for 25 minutes, in batches if necessary depending on how many baking sheets you have, until well risen and golden, rotating the baking sheets half way through cooking. As soon as the pastry is cooked, make a 1cm slit on the side of each bun to let the steam escape. (This stops them turning soggy as they cool). Return to the oven for a further 5 minutes to dry them out, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container (or freeze).
  • Make the cone. Make a pencil mark halfway along a long edge of the A1 card. Mark the halfway position along both short edges and draw a line from each point to the mark on the long edge. Attach one end of the string to the pencil and holding the other end at the point on the long edge, draw a curve from the point on one short side to the point on the opposite side. Cut out the card shape and use as a template to cut out the same shape in foil. Tape the foil over the card and roll up (foil inside), overlapping the straight edges to make a cone shape with a 20cm diameter opening. Secure with tape and snip 10cm off the point of the cone.
  • Two days ahead: make the limoncello cream. Beat the egg yolks, sugar, flour, lemon zest and juice in a bowl to make a smooth paste. Bring the milk to the boil in a large, heavy-based saucepan. As soon as it reaches the boil, pour it over the egg mixture, stirring well. Return to the saucepan and cook over a low heat, stirring constantly until the sauce is very thick and bubbling. Stir in the liqueur and transfer to a bowl. Cover the surface with a circle of greaseproof paper to prevent a skin forming and leave to cool completely. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • The day before: if the buns are a bit soft when you take them out of the container, lay them in a single layer on baking sheets and re-crisp in a moderate oven for 5 minutes. Fill them sparingly with the limoncello cream by piping as before. You can always pipe in a little extra if you have any mixture leftover.
  • Break the chocolate into a heatproof bowl and melt over a bowl of gently simmering water. (Or melt in the microwave on Medium for 2-3 minutes.) Give the chocolate an occasional stir until it has just melted. Turn off the heat.
  • Rest the cone inside a vase or jug for support. Put a small bun into the point of the cone with the bun's base face up. Spoon 1 tsp of melted chocolate onto the base and secure two small buns over the first, again with base up. Spoon over another teaspoon of chocolate. It's a little difficult working at the tip of the cone but it gets much easier as the cone gets wider.
  • Work up the cone, packing in the buns quite firmly, drizzling the chocolate (see left) and working in horizontal layers until the cone is filled. Make sure that each bun is firmly secured in place with chocolate before proceeding to the next layer and make sure the last layer forms a flat base for the cake. Keep the filled cone in the coolest place overnight.
  • On the day: carefully invert the cone on to a flat serving plate and lift away the cone. Gently peel away the foil if it hasn't come away already. Put the remaining 100g/4oz sugar in a small heavy-based saucepan with 5 tbsp water. Heat very gently, stirring slowly until it has dissolved to make a smooth syrup. Take care not to splash the syrup up the sides of the pan or it may crystallise and solidify.
  • Bring the syrup to the boil and cook for 4-6 minutes, watching closely until it turns a rich golden colour. Take off the heat and dip the base of the pan in cold water to prevent further cooking. Stand back as the pan will splutter noisily. Carefully dip the ends of the sugared almonds and roses in caramel and secure around the cake, scattering a few on the plate.
  • Using a teaspoon, drizzle more caramel around the buns so that it falls in fine threads. If the caramel hardens before you've finished decorating, gently reheat it, taking care not to burn it. Finish with a dusting of icing sugar. To serve the cake, it is easiest if you have one server to break pieces off for the guests, starting from the top and working down.


How To Make A Croquembouche (Cream Puff Tower) Recipe by Tasty image

Here's what you need: milk, vanilla beans, egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch, butter, water, butter, salt, sugar, flour, eggs, egg wash, sugar, dark corn syrup, water, heavy cream

Provided by Jody Tixier

Categories     Desserts

Yield 30 servings

Number Of Ingredients 17

6 cups milk
2 vanilla beans, scraped
18 egg yolks
2 ¼ cups sugar
¾ cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons butter
4 cups water
4 sticks butter
2 teaspoons salt
6 tablespoons sugar
4 cups flour
12 eggs
egg wash
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
⅔ cup water
⅔ cup heavy cream


  • In a pot, heat the milk and vanilla bean pod and seeds over medium heat, bringing it to a boil. Once it begins to boil, turn off the heat and let steep for 15 minutes.
  • Using a hand mixer, beat the egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the cornstarch and mix until fully incorporated.
  • Remove the vanilla bean pod from the milk. Add ½ cup (120 ml) of the milk to the egg yolk mixture and mix until well combined. Add the remaining milk mixture and beat until fully incorporated.
  • Over medium heat, whisk the mixture constantly until thickened, about 7-10 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and add the butter, whisking to combine.
  • Strain the custard into a bowl to ensure a creamy custard (optional). Cover the custard with plastic wrap, making sure that the plastic touches the custard, and chill for at least 2 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 425˚F (220˚C).
  • In a large pot, bring the water, butter, salt, and sugar to a boil over high heat.
  • Once the water begins to boil, remove the pot from the heat and immediately add the flour, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the liquid is absorbed and the mixture begins to form a ball.
  • Return the pot to the heat and cook for another 30 seconds to remove excess moisture. Remove the pot from the heat.
  • Working quickly, add the eggs, one at a time, stirring until fully incorporated. Continue stirring until the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the pan and is thick and glossy. Alternatively, you can use a stand mixer with the paddle attachment.
  • Using a piping bag with a standard round tip, fill the bag with the batter.
  • Place 1-inch (2 cm) dollops on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spaced at least 1-inch (2 cm) apart.
  • Use a wet fingertip to gently press down any points on the puffs. Brush the egg wash over the the puffs.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375˚F (190˚C), and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Let puffs cool completely.
  • Use the bottom of a wooden skewer to create an opening in the bottom of the cream puff shells, just big enough for a piping tip to insert.
  • Fill a piping bag fitting with a small round tip with the custard. Gently fill the puff shells with the custard.
  • Add the sugar, corn syrup, and water to a pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and put the lid on, cooking for 5 minutes without moving. Remove the lid and cook for an additional 7-10 minutes, until the caramel is a deep amber color and reaches 300˚F (150˚C).
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the heavy cream, stirring vigorously.
  • Working quickly, dip the cream puffs into the caramel and arrange on a serving platter in a circular pattern.
  • Continue to stack caramel-dipped cream puffs in a tower shape.
  • Once your tower is completed, dip a fork into the caramel sauce and drizzle it around the tower.
  • Enjoy!

Time 5h

Yield about 70 small cream puff shells

Number Of Ingredients 20

2 sticks (16 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
Food coloring, in color of choice
1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
6 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
Vanilla Pastry Cream, recipe follows
4 cups sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons cornstarch
Pinch fine salt
4 cups milk
6 large egg yolks, beaten
Seeds from 1 vanilla bean pod
2 tablespoons unsalted butter


  • Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • For the craquelin: Add the butter and sugar to a stand mixer bowl fitted with the paddle attachment and beat until combined. Add the flour and beat to combine. Stir in a few drops of food coloring of choice and beat until uniform in color. Scoop the paste out onto a sheet of parchment paper with a rubber spatula. Cover with another piece of parchment paper and use your hands to press out into an even sheet. Then roll gently a few times with a rolling pin to flatten to an even 1/8-inch thick. Transfer to a baking sheet and freeze for 20 minutes. When the craquelin is frozen, remove it from the freezer. Peel the top piece of parchment off and cut rounds with a 3/4-inch round cutter.
  • For the choux dough: Meanwhile, combine the butter, sugar, salt and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan over low heat. Once the butter has melted, bring it to a boil over medium heat. As soon as it boils, remove the pan from the heat and sift the flour directly into the pan. Stir the mixture into a paste with a wooden spoon; you will have to beat it hard. Return the pan to medium heat. Stir the batter continuously until it pulls away from the sides of the pan and is slightly shiny, about 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the batter to a stand mixer bowl fitted with the paddle attachment and beat until slightly cooled, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, incorporating each one thoroughly before adding the next.
  • Fit a large pastry bag with a plain round tip and fill with the choux dough. Pipe twelve 2-inch circular mounds, about 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheet. If the batter has a peak, dab it smooth with a wet fingertip.
  • Beat the egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water and brush the surface of the puffs with the beaten yolk. Using a small offset spatula, gently lift the craqulin rounds off the parchment and place on top of the cream puffs. Bake on the middle rack for 20 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F and continue baking until the puffs are golden brown, light, airy and crisp, 30 to 35 more minutes. If the cream puffs still don't feel completely dry and crisp at the end of the baking time, poke a hole in the bottom with a paring knife and place them back into the oven for a few more minutes to crisp up. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Fill a pastry bag with a small plain tip with the Vanilla Pastry Cream. Fill each puff with the pastry cream from the hole in the bottom.
  • To assemble: Mix the sugar, corn syrup and 1 cup water together in a heavy-bottomed pot and bring to a boil. Continue to boil until it reaches the hard crack stage at 300 degrees F.
  • Use the hot syrup to adhere the puffs to about a 16-inch foam cone covered in foil, or pile up to form a mound. If the hard candy caramel gets too thick, heat it gently.
  • Whisk together the sugar, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan. Add the milk, eggs and vanilla bean seeds and whisk to combine. Turn the heat to medium-high.Whisk often to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Once thick, after about 10 minutes, turn off the heat, add the butter and stir until combined.
  • Pour the pastry cream into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface. Place in the fridge to cool completely, about 2 hours.

Yield Makes about 60 puffs

Number Of Ingredients 21

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
6 large eggs
1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water
6 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sifted flour
2 cups milk, scalded
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons cognac
Pinch of salt
2 cups sugar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 cups toasted finely ground almonds
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup water
2 tablespoons corn syrup


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. To make the puffs, melt the butter in the water with salt and sugar over low heat. Remove from heat and beat in flour with a wooden spoon until completely mixed. Return to heat and stir vigorously for 2 to 3 minutes. Mixture will form a mass, and a film will form on bottom of pan. Remove from heat and, one by one, add eggs, beating vigorously after each addition.
  • Using a pastry tube with 1/2-inch opening, form puffs on a buttered baking sheet. Glaze each puff with the beaten egg and water, using a pastry brush. Smooth the top of each puff. Put in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and pierce each puff with a sharp knife (This allows the steam to escape so that the interior of the puff is not soggy). Return to the oven for 10 minutes more. Cool puffs on a rack. While cooling, prepare pastry cream.
  • To make the cream, beat the egg yolks, gradually adding the sugar, until mixture is thick and pale yellow. Beat in the flour. Add the hot milk in dribbles, reserving 1/2 cup for thinning. Return to pot in which milk was scalded, and stir mixture over high heat until it comes to a boil. It will become lumpy first and then will smooth out with vigorous stirring. Be careful not to scorch the bottom of the pot. The cream should be thick, but add milk if too thick to pipe.
  • Add the butter, one tablespoon at a time. Flavor with vanilla, cognac, and salt. Cool completely. Inject the pastry cream into the puffs with a 1/4-inch pastry tip.
  • To make the nougat, melt the sugar with the lemon juice in a heavy pot. Do not stir. Boil together until a thick amber syrup is formed. Stir in the almonds and spread the mixture on an oiled marble slab while warm. Cut with a sharp knife into a round for the base, and into small triangles for decoration, Keep nougat warm in a 250 degree oven. (It cannot be cut or shaped if it hardens.)
  • To make the caramel, bring the ingredients to a boil over high heat. Do not stir. Cover pan (allowing steam to dissolve any crystals that might form). Uncover pan and boil several more minutes, until syrup is amber. Reduce heat to keep syrup from hardening.
  • Dip the filled cream puffs, one by one, into the caramel syrup and arrange on the nougat base, forming a cone resembling a pyramid. The caramel holds the cream puffs together.Note: Assemble the croquembouche the day of the party, as it cannot be refrigerated. However, the cream puffs, pastry, and nougat can be prepared in advance.
