Ingredients checklist


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan)

Step 2

Put the butter and water into a saucepan and heat over a medium heat until the butter melts and it comes to a boil (around 1 minute). Turn off the heat and add in the flour, beating with the wooden spoon until a soft dough is formed

Step 3

Turn the heat back up to medium and cook out the flour for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly, before transferring to the large mixing bowl and leaving to cool slightly

Step 4

Using the electric hand whisk, add the eggs one by one, ensuring you thoroughly incorporate each one until a smooth glossy paste is formed. Transfer the paste into a piping bag and cut off the end to create a 1.5cm opening

Step 5

Line two baking trays. Pipe 18 small mounds onto each tray and bake for 20 minutes until risen and golden brown. Leave to cool completely

Step 6

To make the cream filling, pour the double cream and 100ml of Baileys into a large mixing bowl and whisk until thick

Step 7

Once cool, cut each profiterole in half and spoon the cream into each one, being careful not to overfill

Step 8

Heat the other 100ml of Baileys in a saucepan until just simmering, then remove from the heat and add in the dark chocolate, stirring continuously until you have a smooth glossy ganache

Step 9

Stack the profiteroles in a pyramid style on a serving plate, spooning the chocolate ganache over each layer to help them stick. Drizzle any remaining ganache over the completed stack and serve
