Prepare Chocolate Cream Filling. Cover; refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until cold.


Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease.


Heat water, butter and salt in medium saucepan to full rolling boil. Add flour all at once; stir vigorously over low heat about 1 minute or until mixture leaves side of pan and forms a ball. Remove from heat. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until smooth and velvety. Drop batter by spoonfuls to form 12 balls on prepared cookie sheet.


Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. While puffs are warm, horizontally slice off small portion of each top; reserve tops. Remove any soft pieces of dough from inside of puffs; cool on wire rack.


Fill puffs with Chocolate Cream Filling; replace tops. Drizzle with Chocolate Glaze. To serve, garnish with fresh strawberries, if desired.


Filling can be made a day ahead.
