Chocolate graham crackers layered between creamy vanilla custard, topped with chocolate glaze. Very rich and habit forming. Everyone I have made this for has fallen in love with it!

Only difference was out of necessity: I used half and half for the pudding mix as I was out of milk. So very rich and creamy! My husband said this was the best dessert I have ever made.... rave reviews by all who sampled!

I did a few alternation, and it was Awesome! First: Use the Regular Graham Crackers-NOT Chocolate! Second: Use FRENCH Vanilla Pudding. Third: Use Betty Crocker's DARK CHOCOLATE Icing (30 seconds in Microwave) and pour over the last layer of Graham Crackers. Refrigerate overnite...EXCELLENT!!

This recipe is extraordinary because it uses very ordinary ingredients that result in the sophisticated taste of eclairs. A few hints: MAKE THE SAUCE FIRST! It will be nearly cool and ready to spread by the time the other ingredients are assembled. If you want a more "true" eclair taste, use honey graham crackers instead of chocolate. You do not need to butter the pan first, and you do not need a full package of graham crackers. I counted about 20 in my 13x9 pan. Take the time to make the chocolate sauce. It tastes much better than canned, and doesn't have all that heart-clogging palm oil in it. Also, the sauce needs only 1/2 t. vanilla in my opinion.
