Éclair Cake


I love me some eclairs…

they are

- hands down -

my fav pastry dessert


Enter a

summer get together

with friends

Mind you - It’s 89 degrees outside

I don’t wanna turn on the oven to bake something

so I whipped up some of this


this was a winning recipe on this hot summer day because it was

1) easy to make


2) used no oven

BONUS - yep – it was pretty delish!

All ya need to whip this baby up is:

graham crackers
2 boxes of instant pudding (I used one box of french vanilla and one box of chocolate fudge – mmmm!)
3 cups of milk
1 carton cool whip
1 can of chocolate frosting

line the bottom of a 9x13 pan with the crackers

mix vanilla pudding with 1 1/2 cups milk, add 1/2 carton of cool whip
spread over the bottom layer of crackers, add another layer of crackers,
mix the chocolate pudding with the other 1 1/2 cups of milk and then fold in the rest of the cool whip, spread over the crackers.  Chill in the fridge for a while (half hour or so). Heat the can of frosting (remember to remove the metal lid/cover, of course) in the microwave for 1 minute and 50% power.  Pour this over the cake. 

Pop back in the fridge and chill for at least 12 hours.
