Preparation

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine the milk, water, sugar, salt, and butter. Cook until the butter melts.
  2. Add the flour, all at once, and using a flexible spatula, stir until combined. Continue to mix until the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan and forms into a ball. Remove the pot from the heat and let cool for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Mix in the eggs, one by one, only adding the next once the previous is fully incorporated into the dough.
  5. Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a large round tip or a zip-top bag with a corner snipped off.
  6. Pipe the dough straight down onto the prepared baking sheet in 1-inch (2 cm) circles, leaving 1 inch (2 cm) of space between each one. You may need to use another baking sheet.
  7. Use a wet finger to press down any peaks.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.
  9. Let the puffs cool completely on a wire rack.
  10. Make the filling: In a large bowl, use an electric hand mixer on high speed to beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form.
  11. Pour in the condensed milk and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Add the food coloring and beat to incorporate.
  12. Transfer the cream to a piping bag with a pointed round tip or a zip-top bag with a corner snipped off.
  13. Add the white chocolate to a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30 seconds, about 2 minutes total.
  14. Use a bamboo skewer to poke a hole in the top of each puff, then pipe in the pink or blue cream, filling each puff about ⅔ of the way.
  15. Dip the tops of the filled cream puffs in the white chocolate and decorate with sprinkles, if desired.
  16. Let cool on a wire rack until the chocolate sets.
  17. Arrange the cream puffs in a tower, then serve.
  18. Enjoy!
