It’s snack time, and we’re heading to France. OK, we’re lying, but it feels like we’re strolling along the Seine thanks to recipe developer Erin McDowell’s coconut choux bites. Lucky for you, the light-as-air treats are easy to make at home.
“In France, they make these delicious, tiny cream puffs but sans cream,” McDowell tells us. “They’re just little choux garnished with a course granulated sugar called pearl sugar. They’re served in little boxes and you’re meant to eat them by the handful. It’s one of my favorite things to get when I’m in Paris, and you can’t really find them here.” Until now, of course. “I added sweetened coconut along with the pearl sugar,” she says, “which just gives them a little bit more crunch and texture with that coconut flavor.”
Don’t let the fancy French term intimidate you—McDowell assures us that they’re actually really easy to make. And because the pearl sugar is the only sweetener, “these really are sweets for people who don’t like sweets,” she says. “They’re not cloying, they’re really crunchy, they’re impossible to put down and I want more people in America to make them so that I don’t have to wait until I go to France to get them!”
That’s our cue.
