1 (3.5 ounce) package
non-instant chocolate pudding mix
semisweet chocolate, chopped
This is exactly what I was looking for! I followed the recipe exactly in making the pastry. It is so soft and moist, just like the ones you buy in the pastry shops. Everyone loved it! Thanks!
Edit: I used this recipe together with Pastry Cream recipe and they both complemented each other very well!
Fine, but not quite gourmet like I am used to. My 10 yr old daughter surprised me with these for my bday. So it was a sweet treat that I didnt have to make!
These were good but a filling of light white creme would have perhaps been better. My pastries were very light (which is good!) but when the dark filling absorbed a bit it made them look heavy. With the chocolate on top, the filling makes the eclair pretty rich. My guests liked them but next time I'll switch out the filling for something that's non-chocolate.
I used instant pudding, and instead of slicing the eclair in half and filling with pudding, I punched a small hole in the side and spooned the pudding inside. A very fancy dessert!
The recipe was great. But instead of slicing the side open to insert the filling, i would suggest taking a small paring knife and poking a small hole in one end of each one. Then using a pastry bag equipped with a small tip, pipe the filling into each one. You can control how much you want each one will have and its all contained inside.
I have this recipe from some book or something, it is AMAZING!! I dont use chocolate pudding though, VANILLA pudding is FANTASTIC, it tastes sooo good, like i bought it from a fancy bakery or something. Recipe is perfect!! Instead of the 4 eggs(which are listed as medium in my sheet) i use 2 extra large eggs. works out fine!
I had never made eclairs before this recipe, and they still turned out perfect! It was really easy to follow, and my family loved them (didnt last long!) **cutting the slit in the sides part way through made all the difference**
thanks for the great recipe, will be made again for sure!
I made these today for our Sunday dessert. They were quite easy to make ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator. I don't really see why you need to use non-instant pudding instead of the pre-made packaged one. I was surprised that the pastry part came out light and crispy. I'll try these again when we have company.
