  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. For icing: In small saucepan, melt chocolate and 1 tablespoon butter over low heat. Remove from heat and, with electric mixer, beat in confectioners' sugar and 2 tablespoons hot water. Beat until smooth. Drizzle over filled eclairs.
  3. For shells: In medium saucepan bring 1 cup water to a boil, stir in 1/2 cup butter and salt. Stir until melted. Add flour all at once and stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat and beat in eggs, one at a time, until smooth. Drop by tablespoons onto baking sheet.
  4. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and bake until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool completely.
  5. For filling: In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup of milk, a little at a time, into softened cream cheese, until creamy. Beat in remaining 1 1/2 cups milk and pudding mix. Stir until thick, 1 to 2 minutes. Cut tops off cooled pastry shells and fill. Replace tops.

Taste great. Just a reminder, beat eggs in with electric beaters.

I just made these today and theycame out perfect. The only thing was that the cook time for the shells was much longer for me, I divided the recipe into 10 eclairs and baked them for about 30 m...

Well I'm perplexed. I tried this recipe because the positive reviews outweighed the negative ones. Unfortunately my experience was negative. I didn't want bite size eclairs so I made mine a litt...

Loved the different filling. Made miniature eclairs with this recipe. Everyone loved them.

Wonderful recipe. Everyone thought they were so delicious. However, they either have to be refrigerated or eaten within three days, as the filling will spoil and take on a bad flavor. (Found ...

These were great!!! I've never made eclairs before but they were delicious. They took about 2 hours to make but it was worth it! I made 11 big eclairs instead of 20 little ones. I would suggest ...
