We recently had some server problems which resulted in my last post being deleted. Fortunately it was still in my draft folder so I am reposting it here for any who might actually want to try this recipe sometime. 🙂
At Christmas I made a dessert which I had never made before. It is a recipe that has been around for years and I had eaten it but had just never made it myself. It was called a Chocolate Eclair Dessert and was made with graham crackers, instant vanilla pudding, and a chocolate sauce. You refrigerate it overnight and the flavors meld and the crackers soften a bit making a tasty dessert that the whole family, including the little children seemed to enjoy.
Around Easter time I saw a recipe for a chocolate peanut butter version so I just had to try it since the regular version was so popular with the fam. I did sort of combine the two recipes so I will post the recipe as I made it. I did have to go to a couple of stores to find the chocolate graham crackers. I have found them at Ingles, Bilo, and at Publix here locally. They are around $4 a box if you pay full price but I have discovered that some of the stores do have them as one of their BOGO (Buy one get one free) items.
Peanut Butter Eclair Dessert
1 box chocolate Graham Crackers
2 small boxes vanilla instant pudding
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 1/2 cups milk
8 oz. whipped topping
1/3 cup chocolate chips
3 Tbsps. butter
2 Tbsps. corn syrup
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsps. milk
Line the bottom of a 9" x 13" pan with a layer of graham crackers. Combine the 3 1/2 cups milk, peanut butter, and instant pudding mix and beat for about 2 minutes. Fold in whipped topping. Layer half of this mixture onto the crackers. Add another layer of crackers and then top with the rest of the peanut butter pudding mixture. Add a final layer of crackers. Prepare the glaze by melting the chocolate chips and butter. Stir in corn syrup, powdered sugar, and milk. Spread on top of crackers. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
