Ingredients

    * Water, tap, 1 cup (8 fl oz)
    * Margarine, hard, 1 stick = 1/2 a cup
    * *Flour, white, 1 cup
    * Eggs 3 large
    * *Cool Whip Free, .5 cups
    * Kraft Jello-o Brand Fat Free Sugar Free Pudding, Vanilla, 2 servings- 1 cup of pudding
    * Milk, nonfat, 2 cup - for preparing pudding

Directions

Boil cup of water and 1/2 cup of margarine.
Remove from heat and add cup of flour- stir till it comes off the sides and one at a time beat in 3 eggs.

Scoop on to grease cookie sheet in teaspoon sizes. Bake until brown (If not cooked long enough they'll deflate)

Let cool completely.

For filling- make pudding as directed on box and let set.
Mix in 2 cups of cool whip.

Use a pastry bag to fill cooled cream puffs as close to your serving time (this helps prevent the pastry from getting soggy) Usually it's easy to find a crack or thin spot in the cream puff to fill it without leaving a mark.

*You can make these larger to serve at kids parties instead of cupcakes or if you'd like a larger version for yourself- just use larger scoops!

Try other flavor puddings for your own tastes.

For Halloween I also use a few drops of orange food coloring in the batter of the pastry while mixing in the eggs.

Heat the chocolate til soft and use a pastry bag to draw eyes and a little jack-o-lantern mouth.
