I want to take a moment to apologize those of you who come here for my Gluten Free and Dairy Free recipes. I am throwing it out the window for this “Snack”urday! Mama needs some ooey gooey chocolate! 🙂
I am always saving those “go to” recipes. The ones that you make to take to church on Sunday, or the family picnic, or the office party. The ones that are usually in one dish, but are so good everyone wants the recipe before you leave. Those are cherished recipes. The ones you pass down to your kids, and grand kids. Well, this is/was one of my Mama’s go to recipes. I think there was a time when I was younger that you could open the fridge and count on this Eclair dessert being in there. There was a lot of kids in and out of our house, and this fed a ton of us after school. The only problem was, if she made it for a specific reason (Office Party), and we didn’t know it. It may not be there when she needed it. 😉 Oops!
This is one of those wonderful desserts that you almost want to make ahead because it tastes better the longer it sits. The longer it is in the fridge the graham crackers get softened by the pudding and take on a wonderful cake consistency. Mmmm…. Well, I am having a hard time. I whipped up this deliciousness all of 10 minutes ago and I am trying to remind myself it gets better with time.
So, next time you have a picnic, or a social, or any old excuse to take a covered dish. Take this one! Your dish will come back spotless! Promise!
