Chocolate Eclair Cake

If I had to choose just one dessert that I could eat for the rest of my life, this Chocolate Éclair Cake would be near the top of the list of contenders.  It’s light and won’t leave you full of regret, yet it’s somehow incredibly satisfying.  It has the consistency of something rich without being too heavy and it’s also served chilled so you get that same satisfaction that you get from eating a bowl of ice cream.

Have I convinced you to try it yet?

Yes?  No?  Well, it’s also one of the easiest desserts to make… it’s one of the first desserts that I can remember making from start to finish all by myself when I was young.  Oh, and there’s no baking required. 

Buy It

2 small boxes instant French vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1 12 oz. light cool whip
1 can chocolate frosting
1 box graham crackers

Make It

1.      Combine pudding mix, milk, and cool whip until smooth.
2.      Line a 9x13 pan with graham crackers.
3.      Spread 1/2 of the pudding mixture on top of the graham crackers.
4.      Add another layer of graham crackers.
5.      Spread second 1/2 of pudding mixture on top of the graham crackers.
6.      Add another layer of graham crackers ensuring that they are wedged very tightly.
7.      Spread chocolate frosting over the top.
8.      Refrigerate until time to serve.

This recipe is one of my go-tos for dinners and parties and it’s one of my very favorite desserts to make during the holiday season. 

I hope you enjoy!
