We opted for a fresh and tasty custard and strawberries.   ------------------------------   Chocolate fritters:   INGREDIENTS  for the chocolate choux pastry:  250ml water  100g butter  30g sugar  140g flour  20g cocoa powder  5 eggs custard, as needed  black cherries  powdered sugar DIRECTIONS  1.
