Cream puffs or profiteroles are small French choux pastry balls filled with sweet and creamy custard, whipped cream, pastry cream, or ice cream. They’re perfect for desserts, merienda, or a mid-work snack to keep your mind off the stress. Here are online stores where you can get your fill of the tasty treats.
