Eclair Dessert Revamped
I do love an eclair dessert! And I bet most people who have had the original one do too!
I adapted my recipe from RecipeLion’s Chocolate Eclair Cake which can be found in “No-Bake Desserts: 103 Easy Recipes for No-Bake Cookies, Bars and Treats.”
My substitution was simply for the Nutella. I must be the only person alive who doesn’t go ga-ga over it. It’s not that I dislike it, but I just can’t get excited about it. However, I can get excited about Biscoff cookie cream, so I used that instead.
Finally, I didn’t pour the Biscoff on top–I made it a layer between the pudding cream layers for presentation’s sake as well as the Biscoff wasn’t a pourable consistency.
Peanut Butter May Also Work
Peanut butter may be a fine substitute as well. Please bear in mind that I didn’t try this, but I don’t think you’ll run into any problems if you use peanut butter and prepare it as directed in the original recipe on RecipeLion. When I tested that method with Biscoff, it curdled and seized up a bit, so I tried it again and didn’t microwave it, but just added cream so it became a spreadable consistency.
- 3 cups whole milk
- 1 (16-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 2 (3.5-ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 (14.4-ounce) box graham crackers
- 1 jar (14 oz) Biscoff cookie cream
- 2-4 tbs light or heavy cream
- 1-2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- In a large bowl, combine the pudding mix and the 3 cups of milk. Whisk for 1 minute. Stir in HALF of the whipped topping.
- In a small bowl, combine the Biscoff with 2 tbs cream and stir to combine. You may add another 2 tbs of cream so the mixture is of spreadable consistency.
- Place one layer of graham crackers on the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Top with the pudding/whipped topping mixture and another layer of graham crackers on top. Spread the Biscoff mixture on top. Finishe with a layer of graham crackers and the pudding/whipped topping mixture. End with a layer of graham crackers.
- Top with the remaining whipped topping and dust with cinnamon if desired.
- Chill for at least 1 hour.
