 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    7       oz           Butter
    2       c            Water, hot
    9       oz           Flour
    8       lg           Eggs
 
        Mix the butter with hot water in a pan, then heat
   to a rolling boil, shut down the heat and add all of
   the flour.  Beat well, then turn the fire back on to
   dry out the mixture.
   
        Let it all rest for 5 minutes and add eggs, one
   at a time. Incorporate each egg completely before
   adding the next.
   
        Pipe out profiteroles on a cookie sheet and bake
   in a 375 F oven for 50 minutes.  Turn off the oven and
   leave profiteroles until the oven is cool.
   
        Crack the oven door a little during this time to
   enable them to become sufficiently dry.  If you are
   not going to use profiteroles the same day, place them
   in the freezer immediately.  Once they are frozen,
   store them in a plastic bag to prevent them from
   becoming stale.
   
        Procedure: Cut the profiteroles in half and place
   them in a high oven until hot.  Put a small round
   scoop of ice cream in each bottom half.  Cover with
   the remaining tops, then ladle thin hot chocolate
   sauce over the top of each.
   
        Serve immediately.
