With the Christmas holidays coming up, we all need a little help in creating yummy Christmas desserts. The best desserts are the ones that are crowd-pleasers and taste like you spent all day creating them. This recipe definitely fits the bill. It's a take on the classic chocolate éclair. This dessert travels well and is great for potlucks and parties. You are only five ingredients away from a rich dessert that everyone will love!


1 box of Honey Graham Crackers

1 large box of vanilla instant pudding mix

1 cup of milk

1 8-10 oz tub of Cool Whip

1 can (plastic) of chocolate frosting


  • Mix 1 cup of milk with the pudding mix.
  • Fold in the entire tub of cool whip to the milk and pudding mixture. Set aside.
  • Place 1 layer of graham crackers in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. A good idea is to break the four connected crackers into two to break them up a bit.
  • Layer half of the pudding mixture on top of the crackers.
  • Top the pudding mixture with another layer of graham crackers.
  • Take the seal (especially if foil) off of the frosting can.
  • Place the can uncovered in microwave for 1 minute on high.
  • Stir frosting and then pour on top of graham cracker layer.
  • Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.

Tip: buy the can of frosting that includes a packet of sprinkles in the lid. Put the sprinkles on as the very last step to make the dessert more festive!
