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!
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 chocolate 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!
