Chocolate Cream Puff

What to do with left-over whipped cream from the strawberry shortcake? I thought about it and realised that i can turn the already whipped cream into chocolate whipped cream by just adding melted chocolate to it!! I bought a local book not too long ago where it teaches you how to make cream-puff and it is really very easy and i am surprised that it isn't too difficult that i thought it was all along.

I like the fact that the whole combination is not sweet at all - so the dust of icing sugar on top kinna blends it all. So, overall, i am quite happy with the results! now i still have left over chocolate whipped cream so what to do next? :P

Recipe taken from Chef Alex Goh's Temptation of Chocolate..
