Profiteroles are a type of French pastry that are made from choux pastry dough, which is piped into small balls and baked until they are crisp and hollow inside. The pastry balls are then filled with whipped cream or pastry cream and typically served with a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Although these are easy to make, there is definitely a science and a technique involved, so don't be disheartened if you have to experiment with these a bit. While most people use regular all purpose flour, I liked the results I got with cake and pastry flour. I also tried bread flour but wasn't happy with the results.
