1
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C)
2
Sift the flour and white sugar together in a bowl, and whisk until combined.
3
In a medium-sized pot, place the water and 1/4 cup of butter on the stove over medium heat. Melt the butter and let the mixture come to a boil.
4
Remove the pot from the heat and quickly add the flour-sugar mixture, continuously beating until the mixture forms a smooth ball.
5
Allow the dough to cool for a couple of minutes before adding the beaten eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition to create a smooth, glossy paste.
6
Run a baking sheet under cold water for a few seconds, and then tap off any excess water. Grease the damp baking sheet with extra butter.
7
Fill a piping bag with the choux pastry mixture and pipe out 3-4 inches long éclairs onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving ample space between each eclair.
8
Bake the eclairs in the preheated oven for 22-25 minutes, or until they have puffed up and are golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and make a small hole on the side of each eclair with a fork or knife tip to release steam. Allow the eclairs to cool completely on a wire rack.
9
In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream and powdered sugar together until stiff peaks form. Fill a pastry bag with the whipped cream.
10
Slice the éclairs in half horizontally and pipe the whipped cream filling onto the bottom half, then place the top half back on.
11
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 tsp butter for about 1 minute, then stir until smooth. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the filled eclairs.
