You Only Need Three Ingredients for These Cream Puffs

The brilliant creation came to me the other day when my kiddos wanted some ice cream sundaes.

I was trying my best to divvy out the ice cream without licking the scoop.

But then I spotted some croissants and wondered.

My kids saw me begin to rush around.

They knew I was having a lightbulb moment and just watched and giggled.

Could a delectable dessert really be that easy to whip up? Could it?

They started grinning when I insisted that I “taste test” my creation before I placed it on the website.

Sometimes it pays to be a food blogger — wink, wink!

But hey, they don’t get out much. :)
