For the profiteroles: In a saucepan boil water and add butter. Add flour and stir well. Cook till it starts leaving the sides of the pan. Remove from fire and keep it aside for cooling. Whisk egg yolk in the mixture and add the vanilla essence. On a tray dust flour and pipe the mixture in a round shape. In a pre heated oven bake the profiteroles for 40 minutes, remove when done.

For the mousse Boil milk and chocolate in a bowl and cool the mixture. Whip the cream in a mixing bowl and add the chocolate mixture gradually. Keep aside.

For the caramel In a sauce pan, melt sugar till you get the desired consistency and colour.
