Chocolate Eclair Dessert

This was a favorite of mine growing up. My mom would always make this when she had her dinner parties and she would always save me some. It is also very easy!!!

Chocolate Eclair Dessert - serves 12

1 box graham crackers
2 small Jello instant "French" vanilla pudding
1 - 9 oz Cool Whip, thawed
Chocolate Icing (See recipe below)

Grease a 9 x 13 pan. Made pudding according to package using whole milk only. Line the greased pan with whole graham crackers. Cover with 1/2 of the pudding, add another layer of graham crackers, add the rest of the pudding and then another layer of graham crackers. Spread with chocolate icing and refrigerate to chill. Serve with a dollop of cool whip.

Chocolate Icing

2 squares semi-sweet chocolate
2 tsp white Karo syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 tbs milk

Melt chocolate and butter. Add remaining ingredients. If too thick, add more milk in little amounts.

Enjoy - this one won't last long!
