Eclair Dessert

"What do you want me to bring?" 
"Can you bring that yummy dessert you brought last time?" 
Little do they know that this is the easiest thing for me to make to take to a neighborhood get-together, or any get-together for that matter!  I have eaten it since I was a child, and I have made it since I was in college.  It doesn't require me to heat up a stove or oven, it is pretty cheap (especially if you use store brand products like SHOP 'n SAVE's Essential Everyday line), and I get to lick the spoon after it is all made and put together.  Perfect!

  • a box of graham crackers
  • 2 sm boxes of vanilla pudding
  • 1 container of whipped topping (like Cool Whip), thawed
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 can chocolate icing
  1. Line 9x13 pan with crackers.
  2. Mix 3 c milk and pudding with a wire wisk for 1 minute.  Add whipped topping, mix well.
  3. Spread half of mixture on crackers.  Add another layer of crackers and the rest of the pudding.  Add a third layer of crackers.
  4. Remove lid and foil cover from icing and microwave for 1 minute on high.  Stir.  Pour over top layer of graham crackers.  Refrigerate 4 hours or over night.

Difficulty: super easy
Time: less than 20 minutes, plus at least 4 hours to chill

  2. This sounds wonderful! I'll bet I could substitute fat free Cool Whip, fat free milk, and fat free/sugar free pudding without compromising the taste too much.

  3. I've been making this "no fail" dessert for 30 years. It always gets rave reviews. Easy and delicious!
