There is something about Chocolate Eclairs that conjures up memories of Bakeries. It is so difficult walking in and making a single selection and let’s face it our eyes are always bigger than our bellies .. well usually! That said it usually came down to Vanilla Slice, Chocolate Donut, Custard Tart or Chocolate Eclair.More often than not it was the latter. Seriously, who could resist? We have selected this fabulous NO BAKE version to share with you .
2 (3.4 oz) boxes of dry Vanilla Instant Pudding mix
3 1/2 cups whole milk
12 oz. Cool Whip
1 box (2-3 sleeves) of graham crackers
5 Tbsp. butter
5 Tbsp. milk
5 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
1 cup powdered sugar
In a large bowl, blend milk and vanilla pudding packets for about 2 minutes. Fold in Cool Whip.Line the bottom of a 9×13-inch pan with graham crackers. (You may have to cut some crackers so they fit neatly.)
Spread half of pudding mixture over graham cracker layer. Top with another layer of graham crackers and the remaining pudding.
Melt butter in microwave and mix well with milk, cocoa, and powdered sugar to make frosting. (It will be very thin in texture.)
Top all with a final layer of graham crackers bumpy side down. (This will make the top look smooth.)
Finally, pour chocolate frosting on top and spread evenly.
Refrigerate at least four hours before serving to allow the graham crackers to soften.
