Here is the recipe:

The Ultimate Red Éclair Cake

Servings 24 


  • 1-1/2 cups cold milk
  • 4 oz. (1 package) vanilla flavor instant pudding
  • 8 oz. (1 tub) whipped topping, thawed (I used Cool Whip)
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 24 graham crackers
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1-1/2 packages (4 oz. each) semi-sweet chocolate (6 oz.), broken into pieces


  • Using an electric mixer, whip milk and pudding mix (around 2 minutes). Stir in whipped topping. Layer 1/3 of the graham crackers, ½ of the pudding mix and 1 cup strawberries in 13 by 9-in. pan, breaking crackers as necessary to fit in the dish; repeat layers. Finish with remaining crackers.
  • Melt chocolate and butter together in a microwave or on a low heat, just until well incorporated. Remove and spread over crackers.
  • Place in the fridge to set for around 2-3 hours. Slice and serve.
