Several Super Bowls ago I made a Chocolate Éclair Cake for a party we were hosting. One of the kids at the party raved about it for years after. When his mom had surgery recently I thought it only appropriate to make a Chocolate Éclair Cake with the dinner I was providing them. I picked up all the ingredients necessary at our new ALDI store, the ingredients could not be more basic and they were all available at ALDI.
For this recipe you will need:
- Baker’s Corner Instant Vanilla Pudding
- Baker’s Corner Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Fit & Active Lite Whipped Topping
- Benton’s Honey Graham Crackers
- Friendly Farms 2% Milk
- Countryside Creamery Unsalted Butter Quarters
Another reason I love this cake recipe is that you have to make it either early in the day before serving, or ideally the night before. Any make ahead recipe sure is a big relief especially when entertaining.
Since I was not making them a full cake, I was able to split this into two 8 x8 disposable pans. It’s a win win in our house this time.
Simply layer the graham crackers at the bottom of your pan.
Make the pudding per the directions on the box. Add half of the Tub of whipped topping.
Layer half of the pudding mixture on the graham crackers and tops with another layer of graham crackers. Repeat.
Make a super easy chocolate topping using the Baker’s Corner Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, butter and vanilla. I simply melted it all in the microwave for 1 minute then stirred.
Top the final layer of Graham Crackers with the chocolate mixture, cover and refrigerate overnight.
Cut with a sharp knife to serve.
Tastes amazing and a nice cool cake for summer entertaining.
