Choux pastry is what you need to make both profiteroles and eclairs. It can be seen as difficult to make but once you know and follow the basics, you will realise there is no big mystery or special skills needed.
Making choux pastry is more like making a sauce than a traditional shortcrust pastry.
My only note is that they don’t do well made too far ahead as they can go soft so making them before guests arrive is ideal and prepare the filling and topping separately. Once you’re ready to serve, filling each one and giving them a glossy chocolate dressing will result in truly, delicious Profiteroles which will make everyone very happy 🙂
