Chocolate Eclair Dessert


"For this awesome layered dessert, a pan is lined with graham crackers, and layered with a series of pudding, whipped topping, more graham crackers. To finish, chocolate frosting is smoothed over."  Kids and adults love this dessert and it is great for potlucks!
INGREDIENTS:
3 individual packages graham crackers
1 (3 ounce) packages instant french vanilla
pudding mix
1 (3oz) package instant cheesecake 
pudding mix
3 cups milk
Frosting:
1/3 cup of cocoa
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter
1/4 cup of milk
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped
topping, thawed

DIRECTIONS:
1.Line the bottom of a 9x13-inch pan with graham crackers. In a large bowl, combine pudding mix and milk. Stir well. Stir in whipped topping to pudding mixture. Spread half of mixture over graham cracker layer. Top with another layer of graham crackers and the remaining pudding. Top all with a final layer of graham crackers and frost with chocolate frosting. Refrigerate until serving.

Frosting-  Bring all ingredients to a boil and boil for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and add 1 tsp vanilla.  Cool completely before frosting.











Outstanding! You will definately need 3 packages of graham crackers to do the three layers as described. I use a box of French vanilla and a box of cheesecake pudding. For the frosting, I used a recipe from this site that is no longer available. It was a chocolate sauce from Bays Chick. The recipe is as follows: 1/3 c. cocoa (I used Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa), 1 c. sugar, 1 stick butter, 1/4 c. milk. Bring to a boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp. vanilla. Cool completely. It thickens nicely and tastes absolutely fabulous! This frosting makes this dessert out of this world!!
