Rated 4 out of 5 by azlm from Super simple I was looking for a recipe like this for assembly tips. It was helpful except that it didn't include a recipe for chocolate ganache. I searched this web site for one and found it buried in the instructions for another type of desert. Please include it with these instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carolynt from So EASY!! So impressive! I've done this for special celebrations at church suppers, & very often when entertaining at home. Works great in a buffet setting. I would add to the instructions provided: Melt some chocolate in a pastry bag (or a resealable plastic bag if you don't want to clean up chocolate. Snip a very small nip off the corner; you can always make it bigger, can't make it smaller), and use it for glue to hold your cream puffs secure while you build. If you pick up the frozen cream puffs at a warehouse club, there are 48 to 52 frozen cream puffs in a box, makes a generous tree. You can drizzle the chocolate ganache over the finished stack, drizzle some white chocolate over that. You'll be getting calls, not for the recipe, but for the dessert!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frida van Leeuwen from This is a good idea. I am going to try it out in a Christmas outfit, decorated with green hollyleafs and red drops ore with read poinsettia.
