No-Bake Chocolate Eclair Cake

A recipe that has both no-bake and chocolate in its name must be a winner…..Right?  Eleven of us were here at chez moi Wednesday evening for a fundraiser, and we decided to make it a dessert and coffee get together.  I prepared three desserts – lemon brownies, yellow cupcakes with coconut frosting, and this no-bake chocolate eclair cake.  (I am happy to report that I didn’t lick my fingers or taste one bite, and if you’re wondering what that is all about, go here.)  It is all about assembly, rather than cooking or baking, and it can be put together in a matter of minutes.  The secret is to make it at least eight hours before you are serving it so that everything can soften up and blend.  I have made eclair cake many times, since it is a favorite of our son’s, but for this one, I used a recipe from All Recipes.

  2. Line the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan with graham crackers.
  3. Pour half of the pudding mixture over the crackers and spread evenly so that all are covered.
  4. Add another layer of graham crackers.
  5. Pour the remaining pudding mixture over this layer and spread.
  6. Add another layer of graham crackers.

  No Bake Eclair Cake - The 2 Seasons


 This would be an easy recipe for the kids to make.  Keep it mind that it is best eaten on the day that it is made or on the next day.


Take care.
