My son would like a "tower of chocolate eclairs" for his birthday cake. Do you have a great eclair recipe?

Would love a pastry cream filling that is chocolate. Need the chocolate that's drizzled over the top. Want an authentic pate a choux base for the eclairs.
Thank you!

I'm sure you're more than capable of a google search yourself, but just for fun, I thought they made eclairs recently on GBBO so here is a link to a page on that site for various eclairs. http://www.bbc.co.uk/food...

Choux pastry has just a few ingredients, but, like many things in the kitchen, technique makes a difference...try this method from Delia Smith for step by step instructions - http://www.deliaonline...

Y'all are great. Sadly, he has changed his mind- now the plans are for a double-chocolate layer cake. Still, I am now inspired to make eclairs, so a win-win! :)
