Chocolate Eclair

Recipe by  

"Creamy vanilla pudding, hearty graham crackers, and rich chocolate frosting make this THE MOST awesome dessert. I keep the recipe copied because everyone always wants it when I take it somewhere. The MOST important part of this dessert is waiting about 24 hours to serve it...the crackers need time to absorb the pudding mixture, and it truly makes a difference in the taste if you don't wait!"

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine pudding mix and confectioners' sugar. Whisk in milk until mixture is smooth, then gradually fold in whipped topping.
  2. Place a layer of graham crackers in the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Spread 1/3 of pudding mixture over crackers. Cover pudding with another layer of graham crackers. Continue layering until pudding mixture is gone. Cover last pudding layer with another layer of graham crackers.
  3. Remove lid and seal from frosting and microwave at 20 second intervals, stirring between intervals, until frosting is pourable (about 1 minute). Spread frosting evenly over top layer of graham crackers. Refrigerate 24 hours before serving.

So easy and very yummy. The only change I made and would suggest to others is to switch from using regular chocolate frosting to trying sour cream chocolate frosting and it was a HUGE improvement in my opinion. The plain chocolate was way, way too sweet for me. the cour cream chocolate flavor was more subtle.

woah! this was really super dee duper sweet. i tried a similar eclair cake that didn't ask for sugar nor frosting, and i have to say it was so much better. this cake lasted 5 days while the latter lasted only 2.

I found the chocolate frosting to be a little too rich so the next time I made this recipe I used chocolate pudding for the topping and everyone loved it.

Very good! Everyone I served it to loved it -especially the kids. It was very sweet so I might omit some of the sugar next time. Extremely easy and I loved being able to make it the day before.

Very good! I would leave out the confectioner's sugar next time to make it less sweet.

All I have to say is DELICIOUS!!!! Yummy and so very easy. I used the french vanilla pudding as suggested, but used milk chocolate frosting. I use this recipe often, and it is always a huge hit!!!
