This easy Chocolate Eclair Cake is one of my favorite no bake desserts! It’s easy to make and it’s a great recipe to let your kids help with!
I just love no bake cakes. There is something about this classic, no-fuss dessert that makes me swoon. Maybe it’s the creamy layers or maybe it’s the way the graham crackers magically turn into a soft, flaky layer. Most likely, it’s both. It’s just so good.
This recipe is so incredibly easy! And, it’s a crowd-pleaser. It’s one of those recipes you’ll want to have in your recipe box for those times when you need to bring a dessert but don’t have time to bake. You basically just need to layer graham crackers and a vanilla pudding mixture, then top it all off with a rich chocolately layer. Are you drooling yet?
I just love vanilla. It’s my favorite ice cream flavor and my favorite and my favorite coffee cream flavor! Some people may say that vanilla is boring. But, I beg to differ! It’s time to #TakeBackVanilla!
For this particular recipe I used a surprise ingredient — Coffee-mate liquid creamer. Coffee-mate’s smooth, creamy taste has been perfected to bring out the flavor in your coffee. I love how creamy it is.
I love using Coffee-mate in my coffee every morning so I decided to give it a try in a recipe. BINGO! It added a level of creaminess that I just couldn’t get from milk. Substituting Coffee-mate liquid creamer in place of a portion of the milk in a recipe has become one of my favorite little tricks! I do it with pancakes, muffins and even sauces. It gives the recipe a little something extra that you just can’t get from milk. There are so many recipes that you can use Coffee-mate in. Visit Coffee-mate for more delicious recipes!
