Chocolate Profiteroles for the Great British Bake Off Final tonight

I dont think its possible to watch Bake off without some kind of homemade baked treat!

Tonight I think calls for a tower of gluten free chocolate profiteroles with some sugar shards. Filled with some extra thick double cream and delicious gluten free dark chocolate. I hope Mary and Paul would approve.
