Now, I love to bake, and I certainly don't shy away from complex dessert recipes. But sometimes I want something tasty that just so happens to be easy, too. How 'bout you?
|Chocolate Eclair Dessert|
For this dessert, you start with graham crackers, vanilla pudding, and Cool Whip. Mix the pudding and Cool Whip together - then resist the urge to eat it all up at this point ... wait for the final product ... it's worth it, I promise.
Then layer this fluffy mixture with the graham crackers. You just lay the whole graham cracker sheets in the pan and spread them with the pudding. How easy is that?
Once you're done your layers, boil together some sugar with cocoa and milk, and then add some butter and vanilla ...
... then pour it over the top graham cracker layer. Now lick the spoon ... and the pudding bowl ... you deserve it.
Refrigerate it over night, and then dig in! You'll be surprised how yummy and satisfying this super-simple concoction is. Oh, and Mark says it makes a great breakfast, too.
