Ever wanted to make croquembouche? If you've never heard of it, it's essentially a giant mountain of choux pastry balls that are held together by whisper-thin threads of caramel. It's a special treat reserved for celebrations like weddings and baptisms. In this video from Bon Appétit's The Scene, you can watch croqeumbouche being made in all its gooey, choux-y glory.
