I showed you how after they were baked, they puffed up and hollowed out inside.  Well, today, we will be filling them with the lightest, creamiest, booziest Irish Cream whiskey mousse you’ve ever tasted!

The mousse is super simple to prepare.  It’s just three components, folded together and chilled:

  1. white chocolate melted together with Irish cream liqueur
  2. egg whites whipped with sugar
  3. whipped cream

It doesn’t get much simpler than that!  Just spoon a little of that fluffy mousse filling into the hollows of your choux puffs.

These are so heavenly, just dusted with a little powdered sugar for garnish!  But since I love you guys so much, I decided to go all out for ya.
