My sister-in-law Mary taught me how to make this chocolate éclair dessert. She makes it every year for our family reunion.
It is a great dessert for a crowd. You can make it in a 9×13 pan.
It can also be made in individual servings (as pictured) if you are wanting a better presentation for maybe a dinner party.
I honestly prefer to make it in one large pan just because it’s easier.
Chocolate Éclair Dessert
1 box graham crackers
1 can chocolate icing
2 boxes instant vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1 8oz block cream cheese
1 container Cool Whip
Whisk together the pudding mix and the milk until it thickens.
In a separate bowl beat the cream cheese and Cool Whip.
Fold in the pudding mix until combined.
In a 9×13 pan, line the bottom of the pan with graham crackers.
Spread half of the pudding mix over the graham crackers.
Add another layer of graham crackers.
Spread the other half of the pudding mix.
Top with another layer of graham crackers.
Spoon the chocolate icing into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 1 minute or until pourable.
Pour the icing over the graham crackers and spread with to cover.
Refrigerate for a few hours before serving.
