1 (8-ounce) tub frozen reduced-calorie whipped topping, thawed
1/4 cup fat-free milk
2 tablespoons stick margarine or butter, softened
2 tablespoons honey
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
How to Make It
Arrange 7 1/2 graham cracker sheets in the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine 3 cups milk, pudding mix, and cream cheese in a large bowl, and beat at low speed of a mixer 1 minute or until thick. Fold in whipped topping. Spread half of the pudding mixture over graham crackers, and top with 7 1/2 graham cracker sheets. Repeat the procedure with the remaining half of pudding mixture and 7 1/2 graham cracker sheets.
Combine 1/4 cup milk, softened margarine, honey, and unsweetened chocolate in a medium bowl, and beat well with a mixer. Gradually add powdered sugar to milk mixture, and beat well. Spread chocolate glaze over graham crackers. Cover dessert and tent with foil; chill 4 hours.
In the sweltering heat of summer, I want dessert that's no bake, cool & light; this one hits all the right notes! Super easy to prepare / make; I was very pleased with the overall results of this icebox (really fridge) dessert. I did think it a little odd to "make" my own sweetened chocolate glaze when you can really just melt down your favorite chocolate bar to spread on top, but otherwise, it's pretty foolproof. Next time I plan to add a bit of instant espresso to the chocolate to give it a little more of a rich flavor, but otherwise wouldn't change a thing. It's best the second day when the pudding has had a chance to soften the grahams. Everyone raved / enjoyed this one and it tastes exactly like a chocolate eclair; wouldn't hestitate to make again - Enjoy!
One of our favorite CL recipes of all times. This recipe is a family favorite! I've made elaborate and fantastic desserts before, but my kids still rave about Chocolate Eclair Icebox Dessert. It's perfect for a hot summer day~ sweet, cool and creamy. I wish CL would post a picture with it.
This dessert is fantastic. I will say that i didn't use fat free products. I used normal graham crackers and instant pudding mix (with skim milk), and I used low fat not fat free cream cheese. The result is so very very good; it does make a huge amount; my family will be eating it for days and days, but I have a feeling no one will mind at all!
This was SO easy and turned out beautifully! A PERFECT summer dessert! Light and fluffy! I needed to add more milk while making the glaze. I also used only 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Highly recommend!!
AWESOME! Eating a leftover piece right now and loving it. I was skeptical while making it b/c the graham cracker "crust" seemed lazy and the cream cheese was lumpy, but it tastes wonderful. All my guests were raving about it.
