Tried and True Tuesday!!



Jen has initiated a new meme that's GREAT for finding good, 'tried and true,' recipes! It's Tried and True Tuesday.

I've got a super easy and yummy one today with no baking, for as hot as it's been around here lately. It's the Chocolate Eclair Dessert that my mom talked about bringing to a potluck lately where it was gone before she got any! That's a sign of a successful potluck dish :)

Filling:
2 pkg (3 3/4 oz) instant French vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1 tub (9 oz) Cool Whip

Glaze:
2 sq unsweetened chocolate
3 tablespoons corn syrup
3 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 box graham crackers
Milk (just enough to make a spreading consistency)

Line the bottom of a 13 X 9 pan with whole graham crackers. Mix pudding with 3 cups milk at low speed for 2 minutes. Fold in the Cool Whip. Spread 1/2 of this filling over the crackers. Top with another layer of crackers. Put the remaining filling over the crackers and then top with the final layer of crackers. Melt the chocolate and margarine over low heat. Add corn syrup, milk and vanilla and blend. Add the powdered sugar and milk until it's a spreading consistency. Pour over the crackers and spread evenly. Refrigerate for at least six hours (overnight works well).

Yummy!!! I'm going to have to make this sometime. Maybe my next potluck I go to so I don't eat it all! LOL

Just to make the recipe easier I didn't use a glaze. Just buy a can of frosting and put it in the micro for about 15-30 seconds. I was perfect and so much easier.
