This Chocolate Eclair Dessert is so super easy you may not even believe it. It’s a No-Bake, No-Fuss, heavenly concoction to be sure. Layers of sweet french vanilla pudding are spread between layers of graham crackers and topped with a smooth chocolate frosting. It’s simple, most definitely but wonderful. It tastes a lot like a delicious chocolate eclair from the bakery. My family loved it, I loved it. I bet some of you have made it in the past, yes? It’s one of those recipes that has been floating around for a long time. Thanks goes to my sweet sister-in-law Rachel for passing it on to me. 🙂

And to you.

Hope you love it!

1. Grab 2 small (3.4 ounce) boxes of French Vanilla Instant Pudding. Pour them into your stand mixer or large mixing bowl.

2. Add 3 1/3 C cold milk. (I used 2%)
3. Beat the pudding for about 3 minutes, or until it has thickened. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula 2-3 times during the mixing process to be sure all of the powdered mix gets incorporated.

4. Add 1 (8 ounce) package of cool whip (be sure it has thawed) to the pudding. Fold it in to combine.
