How to Make It

1. Step
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
2. Step
In a pot over low heat, combine egg yolks, heavy cream, sugar, and cornstarch.
3. Step
Turn the heat up to medium-high, whisking constantly to prevent any lumps. Allow the mixture to thicken, stirring until smooth.
4. Step
Transfer the custard into three small bowls. Drop different colors of dye in each bowl and mix.
5. Step
Cover the tops of each bowl with plastic wrap and press down onto the surface of the custard to prevent skin from forming. Chill in the refrigerator.
6. Step
In a pot, combine the water, salt, and butter, bringing it to a boil. Add the flour and stir until the dough comes together in a ball. Remove from heat.
7. Step
Add in the eggs, one a time, stirring until the dough becomes a paste. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.
8. Step
Transfer the dough into a piping bag with a large round tip.
9. Step
On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, pipe 1-inch ( 2 ½ cm) mounds. (To form a more rounded shape, dab your finger with a little water and press down on the mound to eliminate the peak.)
10. Step
Bake for 20 minutes until the pastry has risen considerably and the insides are dry.
11. Step
Allow the pastries to cool. Then, using the tip of a knife, cut a small “x” into the bottom of each pastry and transfer (“x” side up) to a cooling rack. This will allow any excess steam or moisture to escape, ensuring your pastries maintain their shape.
12. Step
Transfer the custard to a piping back alternating the colors in order for the custard to swirl inside the pastry.
13. Step
Fill each pastry with custard.
14. Step
In a bowl, melt the white chocolate chips and vanilla, and swirl teal, pink, and purple dye in order to create a purple marble shell.
15. Step
Dip the top of each cream puff in the chocolate and garnish with sprinkles of your choice.
