No Bake Chocolate Eclair Cake

Jun20

This delicious No Bake Chocolate Eclair Cake is perfect for putting together in minutes.

It’s hovering at 92 degrees here in NC and our upstairs air conditioning has been out for weeks. Yes, adding more freon didn’t work, so it’s a whole new unit for this family and apparently, every air conditioning repairman has better things to do than helping a sister out.

BUT, I am SO grateful for downstairs air and I’m reminded it’s a want, not a need, just like my need for this No Bake Chocolate Eclair Cake.

Now, please understand that we are going to hold the word “cake” loosely in this title because it’s a little tricky to give a name too. Whatever you call it, you will be glad you gave it a try. It’s SO easy that it really belongs over on my 10 Minute Dinners site, plus it feeds a crowd in minutes. Since it’s a make ahead of time type dessert, it’s a wonderful way to get some of the items on the “To do” list marked off before company comes.ย 

Such a delicious and easy dessert. Perfect for days you don't want to heat the oven

I know I have a picture of this deliciousness on a plate, but for the life of me, I can not find that photo card, so just imagine layers of refreshing goodness. While I list store bought whip cream and pudding, know that you can absolutely substitute them with homemade, and believe it or not homemade chocolate pudding is SO easy!!

I make it in a Trifle bowl only because anything layered make a beautiful presentation in a see through bowl, but wouldn’t you know that Kraft shared a picture with pieces cut from an 8×8 cake plate. So much versatility.

  2. Pop that frosting in the microwave for a about 30 seconds and then stir it so it’s the same consistency, then pour it over the final layer of Graham crackers. So much easier!

    I would think you could, but I haven’t tried it. Typically, it’s such a quick dessert that I whip it up the day of. Sorry I can’t be more help. If you give it a try, let me know. ๐Ÿ™‚
