A no-bake chocolate eclair cake is a delicious chilled dessert that turns a few simple ingredients into a cake that tastes like a chocolate eclair!
Vanilla instant pudding mix Whole milk Cool Whip Graham crackers Chocolate frosting
Whisk the pudding mix and milk for 2 minutes. Fold in the Cool Whip, then stir for another 2 minutes.
Line the graham crackers at the bottom of a pan. Pour half of the pudding mixture over the top.
Repeat with another layer of graham crackers, the remaining pudding mixture, and end with a final layer of graham crackers.
Chill, the microwave frosting and spread it over the top layer of graham crackers. Chill overnight.
The vanilla pudding and Cool Whip mixture really mimics the flavor of the pastry cream piped into the choux dough in an authentic French eclair.
No-bake chocolate eclair cake can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until you’re ready to serve it.
It’s also easily customizable—you can make it in individual serving cups, serve it with fresh strawberries, or even top it with chopped nuts or bits of candy.
