Layered Chocolate Eclair Cake

 
 

Layered Chocolate Eclair Cake

 

I love chocolate eclairs but I don’t have time to make them from scratch. I found this recipe on one of my favorite food blogs and knew I wanted to try it. The recipe was so easy and took me no time at all to throw together. I took it to a BBQ this week and there was not one single crumb left! Seriously, it is that good! Did I mention easy?

 

 
 
Ingredients:
 

1 box Graham Crackers
2 boxes French Vanilla Instant Pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
1 container (8 ounces) Cool Whip, thawed
1 can Milk Chocolate Frosting

 

 

Line bottom of greased 13×9 baking dish with a layer of whole graham crackers. You may need to break some of them up to make them fit all the way across the pan.

 

 

Combine dry pudding and milk; beat for 2 minutes.

 

 

Fold in whipped topping and mix well.

 

 

Pour half of the mixture over top of the graham crackers.

 

 

Place another layer of graham crackers over top of pudding mixture.

 

 

Top with the remainder of the pudding mixture.

 

 

Place the final layer of graham crackers on top.

 

 

Heat container of frosting in microwave, uncovered, for 1 minute. Pour over top of cake.

 

 

Refrigerate for 12 hours before serving.

 

 

When you serve it the graham crackers will be just softened enough to form your crust! Doesn’t that look amazing?

 

 

Look at all the yummy layers! Who can possibly resist that? Not me. I only got one small piece so I’m making another one this week that I plan to hoard just for myself. Don’t judge me.

  • I made this over the holiday weekend (along with your cherry limeaid cake) and got great reviews! My husband went on and on about this one! You should feel proud cuz he really doesn’t like desserts all that much!

  • My mom called this an icebox cake and we’d make them with all sorts of flavors. So yummy and easy!! I featured your recipe in a dessert round up today!

  • annie!

    More drool. This Craft0Mania blog hop is dangerous!

  • DelilahLove

    It would be great with those tea biscuits that my mom used to buy for us when we visited Englad. Yummmmmmm!

  • Linda667

    Looks lovely. Will have to look for similar ingredients in the uk!

  • DelilahLove

    It’s so good, isn’t it? Not to heavy and easy to throw together. I like easy with maximum taste! Haha!

    Oh my Gah…nutella. I die. That sounds sooooo good!

  • I like to switch between milk chocolate frosting and nutella….mmmmm..soo good!

  • DelilahLove

    Haha! Slim to none but definitely worth the destruction.

  • So umm…. what do you think the odds are that I can convince my husband and my kindergartener to make me this for Mother’s Day without permanently destroying at least part of my kitchen?

    What the heck… it looks good enough to risk it 🙂

  • DelilahLove

    Oh yes, I definitely do know what you mean. I made it again and guess what I ate for breakfast this morning? Sigh…

  • ellie

    I used to make this all time for my son and nephews, well, and for me too.  Can’t make it now, the whole thing would be for me…that would be sooo good, but not so good.  Know what I mean?

  • DelilahLove

    Well I made another batch last night and guess what I had for breakfast? Haha!

  • I recently made & posted about this recipe, too … with the homemade chocolate topping version.  This stuff is addictive, isn’t it??  It’s definitely a family favorite in our home.  And my hubby says it’s great for breakfast, too!  Hey, why not, right?

  • DelilahLove

    You’re welcome! I’m far too lazy for homemade chocolate sauce. haha!

  • ldi

    Thank you so much for this recipe. My mom has been making this for years, but made the chocolate sauce homemade. This is soooo much easier.

  • DelilahLove

    Thanks 🙂 It is amazingly easy too!

  • Hollie

    Yes, it does look amazing!

  • I love the idea of pouring over chocolate frosting rather than melted chocolate. And this looks wonderful and I’m actually sat here, looking for an excuse to make one.

  • DelilahLove

    I totally agree. Haha!

  • omigoodness…yummmm

  • I’m really confused now, this post is doing the blogger comment box…

  • Love this, and I haven’t made it in a long time, so I’d say I need to think of a reason!

  • Delicious!

    I saw you over on Shell today and had to comment and then come over here!

  • My thoughts (in order): That sounds fancy, prolly way too hard to make. (see ingredients) Wait, I could do that… (scrolling) omg that looks good… Sooooo good….mmm chocolate. Gotta make that… Wait… 12 HOURS?!?! No way that’s sitting in my fridge that long. 🙂

  • DelilahLove

    Based on how fast it disappeared when I made it, I bet it would be a huge hit at any party!

  • I’ve had this at a party and absolutely loved it!  Definitely have to make my own.

    It definitely makes a ton! For a family like mine it’s great but you could always cut it in half and make it in a 9×9 pan instead!

  • OMG. That looks beyond yummy. I think I need to try it!

  • Patricia Purcell

    I’ve had this recipe saved for months, because it looks so good, but is too much just for my family. I’m glad to know that it tastes as good as it looks. I’ll have to make it next time someone comes over!

  • DelilahLove

    It really is THAT GOOD, isn’t it? And it’s so easy! I can throw it together in less than 10 minutes!

  • I saw the title of this post in my reader and thought ” I wonder, is this the same as you know who’s”. And it is!!! “you know who is a friend of mine from church and she recently had the kids and I over for dinner while my husband was away in Haiti. That eclair cake is delish! It is SOOO good. Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to make my own!

  • DelilahLove

    It is so scrumptious and delicious! I can’t wait to make more. I’m going to hide in the closet and stuff my face before the kids find me! Haha!

  • Amy ~ Eatlivelaughshop

    OMGoodness!  That looks heavenly and reminds me of something my mother used to make. It may be this exactly. 

    Thanks for sharing!

  • DelilahLove

    Thank you 🙂 I’m far too lazy to melt real chocolate. Haha!

  • I make a recipe like this, but I actually melt the chocolate, etc. instead of using frosting. Your way is a lot easier! Looks delicious!

    PS. So lovely to meet you via Shell today.
