I Declare – Chocolate Éclair Cake

Posted by on Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Although it is SLEETING here now, we had a couple of warm sunny, spring days this week. Spring time brings about a change of menu at our house. The recent heat wave put us in the mood for this Chocolate Éclair Cake. When our boys were younger they called it Declare Cake – and the name has stuck with us ever since. There is something about Jell-o Pudding that always puts a smile on our kids’ faces.

This recipe is not an organic one, although I did use organic milk. Someday, I hope to revise it with home made pudding, real whipping cream, and organic graham crackers, and home made frosting. So make this recipe – then go cleanse!

The Starting Lineup:

  • 1 Box Honey Graham Crackers
  • 2 large boxes INSTANT JELL-O Vanilla Pudding
  • 6 Cups milk (whole or 2%)
  • 1 carton of Cool Whip (smaller size)
  • 1 can Chocolate Frosting

In a large mixing bowl add Vanilla Jell-o Pudding and 6 cups milk. Mix on low speed 3-4 minutes or until Jello begins to thicken. Fold in the carton of COOL WHIP. Pictured is the large COOL WHIP because that’s what Hubby got for me. The smaller carton would be adequate though.

Line the bottom of a deep 13×9 pan with a layer of graham crackers. Next pour half the pudding mixture over the layer of graham crackers. Pile on another layer of graham crackers, then the remaining pudding. Top with a final layer of grahams (yes, I used the whole box). Then gently spread the frosting over the top layer of graham crackers.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Cut into squares before serving. The recipe makes about 12 generous portions.
