A creamy peanut butter toffee custard fills chocolate covered eclairs for a light sweet indulgence.
I have a bit of an éclair fetish. It started early in life I may have even been born with it, in my genes maybe. My Dad is an éclair lover so I come by it naturally. For a long time the thought of making a pate a choux dough was very daunting. I mean just the name makes it sound really hard. It’s french so it must be hard. It is really easy though. I’ve made them before without trying to “lighten” them. They were so good.
When I bought a jar of Pacific Beach’s Toffee flavored Peanut Butter Spread and tasted it for the first time an idea spread through my brain. I must make Peanut Butter Toffee Chocolate Éclairs. This stuff is amazing, addictive and down right delicious. It’s also organic. Plus it has 4 grams less fat than a regular peanut butter. It’s not because they do something special to reduce the fat, it’s because they don’t add any other unnecessary ingredients.
These are serious yumminess. I won’t tell you they are light and healthy. While I did add some healthy ingredients and reduce the fat slightly, they are still a sweet treat. You cannot eat them all no matter how much you want to. Believe me, you will want to. Pass them out to friends and neighbors. You will be very popular, if you do. Watch out, you will probably sneak a spoon full of the peanut butter and the peanut butter custard.
You may also hear the Peanut Butter Toffee Chocolate Éclairs calling your name from the refrigerator. Their magical flavor powers will be feeding your brain messages to eat them. Oh yes, they have magical flavor powers and are not afraid to use them. “Eat me, Eat me, Eat me”, they will scream. It’s OK to have a few.
