Print Recipe


  • 20 profiteroles ready-made
  • 2 Terry's Chocolate Oranges melted
  • edible gold glitter optional


  • Remove the profiteroles from the packaging and allow to defrost at room temperature for about an hour.
  • Once defrosted prepare the chocolate orange sauce by adding the chocolate orange segments to a heatproof bowl.
  • Place the bowl containing the chocolate orange over a bowl of simmering water and heat very gently until the chocolate has melted. 
  • Dip the profiteroles in the chocolate sauce one at a time and arrange the first layer in a circle of 9 profiteroles.
  • Put three more dipped profiteroles into the middle of the circle. This is the base of your tower. 
  • Repeat the process by dipping the profiteroles one at a time in the chocolate and build the tower up in layers until it's a cone shape with a single profiterole perching on top. For a visual watch the video.
  • When the profiterole tower is complete, drizzle over the remaining chocolate orange sauce.
  • Add a sprinkling of gold edible glitter for extra wow factor.
  • Serve immediately while the chocolate is still warm and melted.



  • Don't put the Terry's Chocolate Orange in the microwave as it has a tendency to seize. Use the double-boiler method instead.
  • This dessert is best eaten straight away while the chocolate is still warm and melted.
  • You can use dark chocolate oranges instead of the regular ones if you prefer.
  • Keep any leftovers refrigerated and consume within 48 hours.
