Eclair Dessert

Seriously delicious.  At a recent get together,  MJ knocked it out of the ballpark with a sinful dessert.  Anything that remotely resembles an eclair….I’m in. I feel confident that it was made with full strength fat and sugar, although a low-calorie version might be worth a try.  Layered desserts can be fun.  It involves no baking and relatively simple.  This would be a great recipe to make with your children.  Close your eyes and dream about a Parisian bakery without the travel.  Enjoy.

Crust
8-10 whole graham crackers

Cream
2-4 oz packages of French vanilla instant pudding (I used one regular vanilla and one French)
3 cups milk
9 oz Cool Whip

Frosting
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
3 T. margarine
5 T. milk
1 t. vanilla
1 ½ cup powdered sugar

Line 9×13″ pan with graham crackers until completely covered with one layer of crackers.

Combine pudding and milk.  Beat on low-speed for 3 minutes. Fold Cool Whip into pudding mixture.

Spread ½ of the creamy mixture over the graham crackers. Place as second layer of graham crackers over the cream. Use the rest of the cream over this layer of graham crackers. Place a third layer of graham crackers over cream.

Make frosting: Melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan over low heat. Gently add milk and vanilla.  Add powdered sugar, whisking until well  blended and smooth.   Cool for 5 minutes. Pour frosting over 3rd layer of graham crackers.

Cool 8 hours.
