I used to make that once in a while when I could "afford" the calories. Great!

We really need a drooling smiley face here

I'd be tempted to omit the crackers and use thin layers of sponge cake instead, just to give it a tad more stability. But that said, it does sound scrumptious as is!

Yum, does that look good! I'll copy and paste; I don't think the sugar will bother my little siblings at all...

When I was catering I used to make the pâte ˇa choux dough and bake it in one large circle (with a hole in the middle) and then fill the huge round eclair with custard and frost it with chocolate icing... It looked great on the dessert table, and then you cut slices to serve.....

I made one on a large pizza plate, sliced it in half and filled with whipped cream, melted chocolate on the top half and it looked like a giant sweet pizza, another time I just left the top plain and dusted with powdered sugar....The kids said it looked like a bee hive

Here's another version of an eclair cake:

ECLAIR CAKE
1 cup water 1 stick margarine 4 eggs dash salt
1 cup flour

Preheat oven to 400. Boil water and margarine and salt together. Add flour. Blend well. Cool, then add eggs and beat well. Pour into a 13x9 pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes. When done, poke with a fork.

6oz. pkg. instant vanilla pudding 8oz. cream cheese 3 cups milk
12oz. Cool Whip Can Chocolate syrup

Add 1 cup milk to cream cheese and beat til soft; set aside, then add 2 cups milk to pudding and beat slowly til thick. Combine cream cheese and pudding together and fold in 4T Cool Whip. Spread on pastry. Top with the rest of the cool whip and drizzle with chocolate.

I know this will sound like an incredible stupid question, but I'm going to ask it anyways: how much gr/oz/lb or whatever other weight measure is "a stick of butter/margarine"?
