Chocolate Eclair Cake RecipeEclair Cake  a no bake dessert with only 5 ingredients. Easy peasy.


  • 1 (14.4 oz.) box graham crackers
  • 2 (3.5 oz) small boxes or 1 large box vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 4 cups milk (only 3 cups if you use 1 large box of pudding mix)
  • 1 (8 oz) container whipped topping; thawed
  • 1 (16 oz) can chocolate cake frosting

1. Prepare pudding mix with milk as directed on the pudding box. Mix in the whip topping gently so you don’t soften the whip topping to much.

2. In 11×13 baking dish layer the bottom of the dish with graham crackers.
3. Spoon pudding/topping mix over layer of graham crackers.

4. Repeat layering of graham crackers and pudding until you use up the pudding.
5. End with a layer of graham crackers on top.

6. Melt the chocolate icing on the stove top (I rig up a double boiler for this so I know I won’t burn anything). You can also melt it for 1 minute on half power in the microwave but only do it 15 seconds at a time so you can stir it in between.

7. Pour melted chocolate over top layer of graham crackers.
8. Refrigerate overnight (about 12 hours should do) for best taste (my boys and I only waited 6 on the most recent one I made) Its just that good.

I usually cut this into large squares to serve but when the guys get to it first it just ends up being spooned out. Not as pretty that way but it still tastes the same. Yum yum! Enjoy!

Thanks to Mama Bee Does for sharing this easy but oh so tasty recipe for Eclair Cake, best part is… NO BAKING!

Just made this can’t wait to try it..


I made something very similar to this with my boyfriend. Instead, we used chocolate graham crackers, and peanut butter mixed in with the cool whip/pudding mix, and just put the chocolate frosting in the microwave for a minute. It was peanut butter chocolate eclair cake. So good.


You could skinny this up quite a bit by substituting skim milk, Cool Whip Free (Fat free sugar free), sugar free instant pudding and reduced fat graham crackers. They even make sugar free chocolate frosting or you could sub fat free / sugar free hot fudge topping in the ice cream isle. =)
