No-Bake Chocolate Eclair Dessert


This recipe has been floating around on the internet for a while and I’ve wanted to try it, but hadn’t got around to making it. My friend made it this week and gave me a sample to try. Oh my goodness, it is to die for! It’s very simple to make, has creamy layers and a chocolate ganache type topping. What’s there not to love? You have to plan ahead because it needs to be refrigerated overnight. You can’t go wrong with this dessert. Everyone will love it.
