Chocolate Eclair Dessert


I thought I would participate in this week's recipe swap (hosted by my friend The Natural Mommy), because I do believe I have the best no-bake summer dessert recipe. It is incredibly easy and quick to prepare, and to-die-for delicious. I have been using this recipe for (dare I say?) decades. The worst thing about this recipe is that you have to wait for it to set overnight. It is always a HUGE hit at potlucks, and a family favorite. So without further ado:

Chocolate Eclair Dessert


  • 1 Box Graham Crackers
  • 2 Pkgs French Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix (4 serving size)
  • 1 12 oz Tub of Cool Whip
  • 3 Cups Milk
  • 1 Can Milk Chocolate Frosting


In large mixing bowl, combine pudding and milk. Beat until well blended. Add Cool Whip and blend well. In a 9x13 pan, layer the following: graham crackers, 1/2 of pudding mixture, graham crackers, the rest of the pudding mixture, graham crackers. Put frosting in the microwave (take off the foil seal first, of course) for 1-2 minutes or until pourable. Pour over the top of the graham crackers and spread evenly. Refrigerate overnight. Cut into squares and serve. Divine.

You can make this recipe low-fat by using fat-free, sugar-free pudding, fat-free Cool Whip, and the reduced-fat or reduced-sugar frosting, and the reduced-fat graham crackers.
