Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine the strawberries and Grand Marnier in a bowl and set aside.

Melt the butter and water in a saucepot and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the flour all at once and stir to form a smooth dough. Remove from the heat and transfer to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.

Mix at second speed and add 1 egg at a time to incorporate. Place in a pastry bag with a round tip. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray. Pipe out 1-inch mounds spaced evenly onto the baking sheet.

Transfer to the oven and bake for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature. Whip the cream in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form, and add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Place in a clean pastry bag and fill the baked profiteroles with whipped cream.

Melt the chocolate in a double-boiler over medium-low heat, taking care not to let the bottom burn. Dip the profiteroles into the chocolate and allow the chocolate to set. Place profiteroles on a plate and serve with the strawberries.
