Welcome to my chocolate eclairs in the Air fryer.

Now this is heaven in my mouth. They are the most delicious things ever especially with his amazing vanilla cream.

But if I eat them as much as I want to, I could see a big weight gain, so these are a one off moment.

Dominic was meant to make eclairs and these ones just remind me of being back in France.

When you visit a French bakery there will often be about 10 different versions and they all taste just as good as each other.

You are then spoilt for choice and it is hard to decide which one is for you!

But Dominic wanted to prove to me that you didn’t just have to be in France to enjoy heavenly chocolate eclairs and that you could do an amazing job by making them in the Airfryer.

What I find that is with the use of the Airfryer that they are fluffier and the dough is nice and crispy on the outside.

These are also perfect for romantic nights in, Sunday treats or just for taking with you on a picnic.

Though, we do tend to eat them as soon as they are done rather than saving them for an occasion.

I love my chocolate eclairs to be traditional like long fingers. You can also make them into balls and fill the centre with cream if you prefer.
