Marmalady, I've never seen this recipe before, but will certainly try it. I like the others too, but have used them before. This one is new to me, but it won't be long!

My mom makes one very similar to the one in the link. I love it! She makes the chocolate icing instead of using the prepared chocoate frosting. Here's the recipe for the icing she uses:

1/3C cocoa
1C sugar
1/3C evaporated milk
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a pot, bring to a boil & boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour over top layer of graham crackers.

One stick of butter is 4oz/8Tbsp/1/2C/1/4lb...Not a stupid question at all!

Thanks crewsk. For the reply and for not considering my question a stupid one.

That recipe looks fantastic. I love chocolate eclairs, but haven't had one for years. I only make desserts for special occasions, but when the next "occasion" arises, I'll be making this one.
Thank you for sharing!
Crewsk, that looks like a good chocolate frosting recipe.

Good luck!
I found it very intimidating the first time I made them, but it realy is very rewarding to start from a strange mix of ingredients in a pot and end up with a nice fluffy eclair... you'll see.

A Chocolate Eclair Dessert sure sounds great but has too many calories for my diet.

Have a great day.
