Caramel Cream Puff Pops

It may come as no surprise to you that I think about food a lot. So when I was in the presence of a cream puff the other day, my mind immediately envisioned it on a stick. Not quite structurally sound enough to be skewered on its own, I imagined a thin caramel shell that would not only provide the glue to hold the puffs upright and intact, would provide a crunchy exterior to provide contrast and give way to the soft, creamy interior.

Guess what? It worked. And how. Talk about party food! Except that I might eat them all if I’m there. I posted the recipe over at Family Kitchen.

    Brilliant! Was trying to decide how to use up a random box of frozen cream puffs from COSTCO and was thinking about attempting the whole croque en bouche thing but this is was better! Thanks!!

    Fabulous! And, brilliant!! Julie, what is the difference between corn syrup and golden syrup? Am trying to rid myself of corn syrup and all that high fructose stuff. Would maple syrup or agave syrup work too?

    Robyn – Roger’s Golden Syrup is 100% cane syrup, not corn syrup. You can read more details here –
