This was pretty good, simple to make, and did have an eclair taste. I would recommend crushing up the vanilla wafers instead of using whole wafers as the cookies will soften up better. I refrigerated this overnight and some of the cookies still weren't as soft as they could have been. For the top layer I substituted crushed chocolate wafers and used half a container of milk chocolate frosting which I microwaved for 30 seconds and poured over as a glaze. Next time I'll use homemade whipped cream as opposed to Cool Whip and see if that helps the flavor as well.

This was alright... i subbed the vanilla wafers with oreos since that was all i had! It was very creamy...which was good and i liked the texture! for a shorter amount of waiting i suggest freezing for about 2 hours!

Very easy to make, I tried french vanilla pudding,it was a HUGE hit at my church. I LOVE this recipe.HINT,,I tried extra cool whip,,it does not cut into squares,too creamy.

I have made this using Graham crackers instead of vanilla wafers. No cookie crushing involved, and the cracker layer is moist. Pudding layers don't have to be as thick either. For my top layer I spread out the cool whip & drizzle Hershey's Chocolate sauce. Extremely easy & tasty recipe.

This was another recipe that I had to tweak. Instead of using vanilla pudding I used banana and I used almost 2 boxes of wafers because I laid them down whole and crushed. As for the chocolate I don't like to microwave it so I melted it using the pan to pan method after I drizzled it over the top and used some of the cookie crumbles just for decoration. It was a hit with the family

This dessert is super easy and tastes GREAT!! My 15yr old son made it for his dad's 40th bday. My family could not get enough of it. He doubled the receipe, used two boxes of vanilla wafers so there would be alot of wafers. He melted chocolate on a double boiler and drizzled it like the picture shows. He could not get enough praise on how well it tasted that day.

Very simple and tastes good too!

This is a good recipe. However would recommend making a crust for the bottom layer. When I tried to use whole wafers on the bottom the wafers kept pulling up. Also when I made the pudding I used some heavy whipping cream to help thicken it so it would cut up nice. Tastes great will definately make it again.
