Heat the milk and chocolate and mix the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour in a bowl.
Pour the hot milk over it. Stir. Pour back into the pan. Stir until thickened.

Fill the pastry cream into a piping bag.
Make two small holes under each choux and fill with cream.
Melt some white fondant in a bain marie and add chocolate. Cover the choux and finish by poaching a little whipped cream.
