Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Once again, not the best picture, nor my prettiest job frosting. But I was trying to do a million things at once. Maybe not a million, but a thousand at least...

I honestly don't know the name of this. We just always call it chocolate eclair. I first tasted it at a dinner with my former assistant principal, then later sought the recipe on the web. It is a good dessert to take to get togethers because it can be made ahead of time, is easy, and requires few ingredients. All positives in my book!

Graham crackers (I just buy a box of the cheap kind, regular not cinnamon)
2 packages (approx. 3 oz) of INSTANT vanilla pudding mix
3 cups milk
1 container (8 oz) Cool Whip (or similar version), thawed
1 can chocolate frosting

Line the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan with graham crackers.

In a large bowl, combine the pudding mix and milk. Stir well. (I use a whisk) Stir in Cool Whip.

Spread half of the mixture over the graham cracker layer.

Top with another layer of graham crackers.

Pour remaining mixture over graham cracker layer.

Top with a final layer of graham crackers.

Spread the frosting over the the top layer of graham crackers.

Refrigerate until serving.

Yes, that is it. Easy Peasy.

And just because I worked so hard (ahem, ahem), I get to lick the frosting spreader.


Happy cooking!

  1. This is Dennis' favorite desert. I buy the reduced fat Nabisco Honey Maid crackers, sugar free pudding and lite cool whip. a 9x13 pan fits 15 crackers in each layer. I lightly frost each cracker on top which makes it easier to cut 15 servings. The rest of the frosting will last several weeks in the fridge or you can frost a pan of brownies too. Aunt P
