Eclair Cake

This no-bake recipe was the perfect addition to a family dinner last week (and perfectly delicious!). The Eclair Cake came in handy with no kitchen and a last minute party invitation. It comes together in a matter of minutes, but tastes like a freshly baked eclair recipe that took all day. This dessert will certainly be a crowd pleasure and satisfy a chocolate craving all at once!!

Eclair Cake

2 (3 oz) pkg. instant French Vanilla pudding
3 cups of cold milk
1 (8 oz) container Cool Whip
1 box graham crackers
1 container of chocolate cake frosting

Combine pudding with milk and mix well. Place in the fridge for 3-5 minutes or until slightly set. Fold in Cool Whip and beat 2 mins. Place a layer of whole graham crackers in 13X9 pan. Cover with 1/2 of pudding mix. Top with a second layer of graham crackers. Spread remaining pudding over crackers. Top with 3rd layer of graham crackers.

In the microwave heat container of chocolate frosting at 30 sec intervals until just melted enough to be able to easily spread or poured onto the top layer. Pour and spread evenly over the top of the cake.

Put in refridgerator for at least two hours before serving.

New House Kitchen Rennovation!

Hi Everyone!
I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I recently bought a new home. We've decided that one of the many projects in the new home will be a brand new kitchen! I am very excited to have a kitchen that we can design and love, but that also means that I won't be able to cook as much when the kitchen gets torn apart. I still plan on posting other helpful cooking information, but the recipes will be few a far between for a little bit. Once the new kitchen is up and running, you can expect the Gorgeous Gourmet to be back in action!! :D
