Finally, a dessert post! My kids have been very generous with me during my “strict meal plan” time. It’s hard to get in the kitchen and create when you’re not allowed to eat any of it. There’s just no motivation.
This dessert is so simple that technically it’s a cheat for a post, but I really wanted to make something for my kids since their dessert nights have mostly consisted of ice cream and leftover Eclair Dessert (they didn’t mind!).
1 premade chocolate crust (or 22 Oreos, finely crushed and mixed with 3 Tbsp. melted butter, then pressed into a pie pan)
1 qt. coffee flavored ice cream, softened
1 cup hot fudge topping
SPREAD ice cream into pie crust; top with hot fudge; spread or marble on top.
FREEZE at least 6 hours or until firm.
Sometimes my pictures just aren’t up to par, but this will have to do. It tastes fabulous never-the-less, or so I’m told
I didn’t get the picture I’d hoped for, but it tasted delicious none-the-less!
This is an easy faux eclair-like dessert that will have people raving. The flavor is awesome It does require an 8 hour refrigeration time, which I attempted to cheat on today, hence the bad picture. I assure you that were you to follow the directions properly, you will have a picture-worthy dessert to go along with the fabulous taste!
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Eclair Dessert
1 pkg instant vanilla pudding
1 3/4 cups milk (pudding directions call for 2 cups- use only 1 3/4 cups)
1/4 cup *creamy peanut butter
1 tub (8oz) cool whip, thawed (yes, I cheated here, too. shame on me)
24 Graham cracker sheets
6 squares Bakers semi-sweet baking chocolate
3 Tbsp. butter
1. Add pudding mix and milk together in a large bowl and whisk for 2 minutes or until well blended. Add peanut butter; mix well. Gently stir in whipped topping. Layer one-third of the graham crackers and half the pudding mixture in 13×9 inch dish, breaking grahams as necessary to fit. Repeat layers. Top with remaining graham crackers.
2. Microwave chocolate and butter in small bowl for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minutes. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is well blended. Spread immediately over graham crackers.
3. Refrigerate at least 8 hours. Store in refrigerator.
*Peanut butter can be omitted, if desired.
